How much prune juice will help relive my constipation?

How much prune juice will help relive my constipation?

May or may not help: Prunes/juice can help, but it does not work for everyone. I have never seen or heard of prune-overdose, so enjoy as many as you wish. If not better in 2-3 days, try miralax, (polyethylene glycol) fibercon, senokot-s, colace, Metamucil etc... For quicker relief, enema may help. Occasional use of milk-of-magnesia or mag-citrate for really-backed-up cases. If persistent, consult doc. Good luck. ...Read more

Can I give my 3 month old baby pear juice?

Not advised: Unless your doctor is treating constipation. For the first 6 month of age your baby should only be on breast milk or formula. You generally don't want to give any juices at all (especially not the first 2 years of life) for many reasons: it "corrupts" those taste buds and then that's all they want to drink, most are way too processed, extra sugar added, empty calories, preservatives... ...Read more

21 months old has severe constipation. How much Prune juice can I give her and is it ok to give daily?

What is constipation: This word means something different to different people. There is a great deal of variation in the frequency of stools between different babies and even for one baby.

But constipation can be a sign of serious illness ...Read more

Can orange juice help with constipation?

Can orange juice help with constipation?

Not usually.: Orange juice does not usually help the bowels move properly. If it is just an occasional problem, you might want to consider prunes. In the long run, you will want to increase fiber in your diet. A fiber cereal is good for that. I mix mine up in yogurt each morning to give it a better taste. Often I add in fruit also. Good luck. ...Read more

Is it healthy to give a 3 month old baby pear juice or apple juice?

No: A three month old needs milk or formula, nothing else. That said, a fruit is a beautiful package; it's relatively low calorie, packed with nutrients, and lots of fiber. The perfect way to ruin this beautiful, tasty, compactly nutritious package is to juice it. When you juice a fruit, you remove most of the fiber, most of the vitamins and nutrients, and you leave water and sugar. ...Read more

Should poop out: A person drinking lots of apple juice usually poops out, due to sugars and sorbitol in the apple juice. The person will actually get too much sugar from drinking too much juice (can lead to bad things like diabetes). A 56 year-old who gets new changes in her bowel habits, such as new constipation, should be checked out by her primary care doctor (wouldn't want anything bad happening in the colon). ...Read more

Constipation: Best thing to do first is make sure you are getting plenty of fiber intake and plenty of water. This will resolve most cases of constipation.

If all of that does not work (unlikely), y9ou can try a stool softener like docusate sodium. Good luc ...Read more
