Diarrhea subsides: Stay on clear liquids until the diarrhea subsides. It is important to avoid dehydation so liquids are a must. After the diarrhea stops, go back slowly over a 24 hour time span using toast, fruits. Avoid vegetables, nuts and legumes for a few days after food poisoning since their high-fiber content makes them difficult to digest, and they can cause gas. Spicy foods and sauces can also aggravate.
Not sure: What kind of "food poisoning" are you referring to? This term is very confusing and needs further definition. The basic answer, however, is that if you are not being treated with medication which may be responsible for the taste, any inflammation of the upper GI tract has the potential for altering your taste perception.See 1 more doctor answer

How does food poisoning work? How long after eating contaminated food would one suffer from the symptoms of food poisoning? What are the symptoms of food poisoning?
Food: Food poisoning is a common condition that results in more than 75 million episodes occur annually in the United States. Close to one in five episodes of diarrhea is likely to be due to a food-borne disease. This means that the average person in the United States will have a food-borne illness once every three to four years. Fortunately, most people recover from an episode of food-borne illness without any long-term complications. The symptoms of food poisoning include nausea, vomiting, abdominal pain (often aching or colicky in nature), diarrhea (which may be watery or bloody), fevers and very rarely blurry vision or tingling in arms. Food poisoning can be caused by a wide variety of bacteria, viruses and toxins. Some of the most common causes include e.Coli, salmonella, hepatitis a, norovirus and listeria. Since each of these bacteria or viruses have different pathogenic mechanisms, the onset of symptoms after ingestion can widely vary. In some instances, symptoms can start within minutes of ingestion (e.g. If the food ingested contains pre-formed toxins that have been produced by bacteria) and in others, symptoms may take days to develop as bacteria first have to grow within the gastrointestinal tract.See 1 more doctor answer
I ate some sushi that was left out overnight. I am afraid I might have some form of serious food poisoning. Can you tell me whether I ought to see a do?
Sushi contamination: People can get food poisoning from any fish that isn't fresh, just like they can get it from any food left out too long. Raw fish can also carry parasites, like raw meat can. That's why we learned to cook foods, one has to presume. Just googling sushi safety brings up salmonella and botulism reports. Http://chicago. Cbslocal.

No sewage!: When you get food poisoning from raw seafood, it's usually from shellfish, such as oysters, that filter water that may be contaminated with sewage. That's not the case with fish used in sush, which swim around in the sea. However, you can sometimes get parasites, such as tapeworms, from sushi. As far as I'm concerned, it's worth the risk.
Parasites: Very very unlikely.Get a more detailed answer ›
Pro mean with: And bio means life. Probiotics help the GI system digest food. Anti means against. So, if one takes excessive antibiotics (which are sometimes needed) they can kill off the good bacteria in our GI systems and we can have digestive problems. This can happen w/out antibiotics at times too. So, the probiotics replace the good bacteria that are missing or low. Peace. Yes, take after poisoning.
After food poisoning, appetite down. Feel full w/ acid reflux after 40-50% normal portions. What is the science that causes that?
Taste buds: The taste buds in your stomach (yes you have them there too - read about them in yourdoctorsorders. Com) will delay the emptying of the stomach so you will eat less and have reflux.
Normal: Yes, that feeling of fatigue is totally normal. You have lost fluids and nutrients so your body is dehydtated. Drinking clear lquid fluids should help those symptoms/.
Can happen: There are many causes of food poisoning, but it may be common for symptoms to persist after the actual episode of exposure or infection is over, including loss of appetite. You may need to seek dietary help to insure good nutrition if you are not eating normally. There might also be an aversion to certain foods long after the event that eventually can resolve with time.
Depends: Dizziness after a gastrointestinal malady causing vomiting and diarrhea can result in significant fluid losses resulting in postural dizziness. Your ability to re-hydrate and how severe the fluid loss was determines the recovery period. This can be modified by blood pressure medication or cardiac conditions. If persistent give your doctor a call.
