Can you be allergic to fruit juice?

Yes

Juice
Allergic antibodies (IgE) can be formed to any large complex molecule that is recognized as foreign to the body such as: animal and plant proteins or carbohydrates, bacteria, fungi, insect venoms or excrement (dust mites) or even synthetic molecules such as drugs. The presence of IgE does not, by it self, confirm true allergy; clinical symptoms occurring after exposure must also be noted.

Dr. Jeffrey K. Min answered:

Can fruit juice cause my baby to have diarrhea? ?

Yes

Baby
Yes, too much juice (and the sugar in juice) can cause babies and children to have something called toddler's diarrhea. Therefore, I discourage giving any juice to babies or children. I prefer giving them water or breast milk/formula/milk instead.

Is fruit/fruit juice ok for me if I'm hypoglycemic?

Only during symptoms

Juice
"hypogycemias" are real in diabetic patients that take too much medication or don't eat after taking medications. Unless there is tumor producing low glucose (insulinoma) most people keep normal levels of glucose even while starving. If you recover from your symptoms quickly with the fruit or juice is possible you have real hypoglycemia but is better to prove &measure it ( must be less than 60 ).

What distinguishes eating fruit from having fruit juice?

Big difference

Fruit_juice
Eating Fruits gives you a lot of Fiber which is healthful for your bowel functions. Juices have too much sugar and will make you eat more as high sugar leads to increased hunger due to high insulin levels which follow after consuming sugary drinks.

Dr. Lynne Weixel answered:

How much fruit juice should I give my healthy 8 month old?

No need, but you can

Fruit_juice
After 6 mths old & once eating solids, you can give 1:10 diluted juice, at mealtimes only, although babies certainly don't need it. Water is always the best choice as an additional drink to your baby's usual milk. However, if you are bringing up your baby as a vegetarian, giving her fruit juice with meals will help her body absorb the iron from her food. Best!

Can I drink all juices except grape fruit juice with Buspar?

Grapefruit juice

Fruit_juice
Grapefruit may increase serum drug concentrations. Avoid grapefruit unless your physician instructs otherwise. Several organic compounds found in grapefruit and specifically in grapefruit juice exert inhibitory action on drug metabolism by the enzyme. It has been established that a group of compounds called furanocoumarins in grapefruits are responsible for this interaction.

Dr. Patrick Tapia answered:

On the the trazodone it says "avoid alcohol and grape fruit juice, why?

Interactions

Alcohol
Trazodone is a sleep medicine and alcohol puts you to a sleep harder so it makes sense to avoid them in combination. Grapefruit has a famous interaction with many medicines because they have compounds called furanocoumarins that inhibit proteins including CYP3A4 and P-glycoprotein. This results in unpredictable effects on many other medications, and Trazodone is broken down by CYP3A4.
