Can you take Tums (calcium carbonate) before eating spicy food and avoid gastritis?

Maybe: If the spicy food gives you gastritis it is clearly not beneficial to you and should be avoided. Tums (calcium carbonate) may help a little but overall you are creating damage.

I think its possible I might have food poisoning. But I don't think anything I ate can go bad. Would it be ok if I took pepto bismol or tums (calcium carbonate)?

Go ahead!: Why do you think you have food poisoning? What symptoms do you have? Taking pepto or Tums (calcium carbonate) will not do any harm but if you have no symptoms, why do you want to take these medications. It is not a good idea to take any medication, unless it is needed. ...Read more

Not a problem: Your body regulates the calcium level in your blood by absorbing or not absorbing what it needs, and by other mechanisms. It's far tougher than scare-monger internet sites would leave you to think. Congratulations on your pregnancy. Best wishes. ...Read more

Are carbonated drinks bad for you?

Mike Moore Dr. Moore
2 doctors agreed:
Are carbonated drinks bad for you?

Yes, in a way...: The reality is that carbonated drinks, while tasty and enjoyable...Are not "natural" in that they typically contain acids and gases that are not normally found in the gastrointestinal tract. They also may contain incredible amounts of sugar...Almost like drinking syrup. They provide empty calories and can make reflux worse. In moderation, they are fine, but only one or so a day is plenty. ...Read more

I drink a lot of carbonated drinks when I'm at work. Is this bad?

I drink a lot of carbonated drinks when I'm at work. Is this bad?

Maybe, maybe not: Sodas with sugar are ok if occasional (excess sugar is bad). Sodas worsen one's calcium & vitamin d status, so drinking excess soda but little nonfat milk can lead to weaker bones. Soda is acidic like vinegar or citrus fruits. Acidity is bad if one has stomach acid problems. Our body neutralizes acidity so our blood is not acidic (our metabolism & enzymes work normally despite our drinking sodas). ...Read more

Is it true that drinking sparkling (carbonated) mineral water will lower your magnesium levels, and if so, why? Thank you.

Is it true that drinking sparkling (carbonated) mineral water will lower your magnesium levels, and if so, why? Thank you.

Not true: There is absolutely no evidence that carbonated mineral water lowers levels of magnesium or other minerals. See http://tinyurl. Com/kojkd24
Soft drinks are acidifying and can leach calcium but not carbonated mineral water, in fact they offer varying amounts of magnesium and choosing a brand relatively high in magnesium will increase your levels- see http://tinyurl. Com/mk4ccxw ...Read more

I seem to have some difficulty drinking plain water that's still but not plain carbonated water. Is this anything I should be concerned about?

As long as you are: Not choking or have a medical condition that has not been discussed w/doc all seems well. It's convenient to be able to drink water so you can begin by adding 10% plain water to carbonated water for a few days, then 20%, etc. You can also put lemon or lime in un-carbonated water. Peace and good health. ...Read more
