Foods To Eat After Gastroenteritis
Start slow: It's best to give your GI tract a rest in the beginning. Focus on hydration. When you do eat, start with clear liquids and then advance gradually if tolerated. Good things to eat included bananas, toast, rice, broth, and apples. Avoid caffeine, alcohol, milk products, acidic food, and fatty food. Stay off milk products until you've been better for 1-2 weeks. ...Read more

I'm 16 years old yesterday I had terrible vomiting nonstop yesterday. I got gastroenteritis infection. I would like to know what foods I should eat.
My stomach has become very delicate. I often get gastroenteritis problems. I am not able to eat spicy food or street food. How can I build on immunity?

Diarrhea getting worse after stopping the magnesium oxide? I haven't eaten anything with gluten and am not lactose intolerant. I did eat ham last night. Now it is liquid with undigested food. No vomiting but gassy. Gastroenteritis? Food poisoning?
First of all it takes a day for the magnesium oxide to get thru. Infection is pretty common. There can be other food intolerances. Personally, I have a little trouble with large amounts of fruit juice (> 12 ounces) and also if I eat anything that gives me hives EXTERnally gives loose stools and gas INTERNally.
Flagyl helps most infections. Increased fiber often helps. Cannot say in your particular ...Read more

I've been hit with gastroenteritis. I've seen conflicting information on wether yogurt is good or bad to eat. Also wonder if I should take Pepto.
Yogurt may be hard to digest. I suggest a clear fluid diet as follows:
NO SOLID FOODS FOR 48 HOURS
Force fluids: 8-10 glasses/day:
Electrolyte rich fluids- Gatorade, Powerade, Vitamin Water
Protein rich fluids: broth bullion, consume.
AVOID ALL CITRUS JUICES: orange, grapefruit, pineapple, cranberry etc.
Avoid all aspirin, Advil, Aleve (naproxen) (NSAIDS).
If not improving go to private physician or ER. ...Read more
Poor sanitation: Many gastrointestinal viruses are transmitted via the fecal-oral route, so poor sanitation and/or poor food handling techniques can lead to contamination of foods (such as a cook having viruses on his hands after leaving the restroom). Also, the viruses are transmitted on door handles, furniture, keyboards, elevator buttons, phones, stair railings; and by shaking hands, changing diapers, etc... ...Read more

Yes: Food poisoning occurs from food or water that contains bacteria, parasites, viruses, or toxins made by these germs. Most cases are caused by common bacteria such as Staphylococcus or E. coli.

My 17 mo old vomited 15 hrs after consuming food. It was undigested. Week prior had 24 hr gastroenteritis. Worrisome?
Vomiting: Vomiting may be caused by a virus or some food that wasn't tolerated. If she hasn't vomited in an hour, start slowly with small amounts of clear liquid (pedialyte)- just 1/2 ounce to start. If tolerated for 2-3 hours, try some light foods (brat- bananas, rice, applesauce, toast). Avoid milk, juice, and heavy foods for a couple of days. See your doctor if vomiting persists more than 2-3 times. ...Read more
I've been diagnosed with ibs recently because had gastroenteritis 3 months ago through food poisoning I'm taking the ib s medication but noises still?
6 days since onset of gastroenteritis and stomach still feels uneasy...Still not eating much and what I eat is bland...Should I be eating more normal?
Should be better: In most cases gastroenteritis should improve within 48 hours, certainly in 72 hours. If you have not yet done so, consult with your pcp. He or she will likely run tests including but not limited to stool exam. If this is a recurrent issue, you may need to consider your diet and avoiding certain types of food groups. Example: avoidance of lactose or gluten are common culprits with many patients. ...Read more
Can loperamide be taken for gastroenteritis? (Viral or food poisoning). Or will it make the illness worse?
It can: In acute diarrhea and vomiting, loperamide is not a good choice. The intestines react too strongly too meds, and the loperamide can actually completely stop bowel motion.. . everything then just stops working! Not good. Try Pepto-bismol or kaopectate (kaolin and pectin) and gas-x and a bland diet (no caffeine, vitamin C or spicy, greasy foods till better. I am one of those that say to stay away from dairy, too. ...Read more

Why is one more likely to experience nausea and emesis from gastroenteritis if they have food in their stomach when the illness begins to manifest?
Undigested food in: The stomach stimulates the stomach to contract and release digestive enzymes and when one has an acute infection, the contractions or peristalsis can result in vomiting. An empty stomach is resting, so less likely to result in emesis. In addition, everyone responds to a gastroenteritis infection differently depending on their host immunity, etc. ...Read more
I think I have gastroenteritis. Headache, achy, can't keep food down. I have Advil (ibuprofen) and Nyquil on hand. I read advil (ibuprofen) was a bad idea. What about Nyquil?

Take broths in sips if you have trouble keeping full meals down. tylenol (acetaminophen) may help for ache and headache, ...Read more
