Why do I get sick after drinking orange juice? Is this an allergy?

Why do I get sick after drinking orange juice? Is this an allergy?

Not necessary: Allergy to oranges (including juice) can present as itching, hives, wheezing, vomiting, diarrhea and less likely anaphylaxis. If symptoms are limited to stomach upset only, it may be only a food intolerance possibly related to the acidity. If a person can tolerate a small amount, but GI symptoms with larger amounts, this supports an intolerance. Either way, if it bothers a person, avoid.

Allergies (Definition)

When I drink guava, litchi and orange juice, it causes me to cough for a while. Could this be an allergy?

Not Likely: Given your description is doesn't sound like a typical allergic reaction which usually includes one or more of the following within minutes to 2 hours of ingestion: hives, itching, swelling, shortness of breath, wheeze, vomiting, or passing out. Sometimes drinking cold beverages can cause a coughing fit in some people. See an Allergist for further workup and evaluation if concerned.

I have a cold and also a huge craving for orange juice. Would orange juice treat my symptoms?

I have a cold and also a huge craving for orange juice. Would orange juice treat my symptoms?

Not particularly: Fluids and rest are great for colds. If you like orange juice, go ahead. It can upset the stomach if too much is taken in due to the acidic nature of the juice. It is a good form of vitamins especially vitamin c. It may or may not help your cold, but if you think it does, have at it. The craving? Be careful. Lots of sugar in oj. Water is good & take vit c tablets for the same sans sugar!

Can take a vitamin C supplement if im allergic to orange juice? I self diagnosed my allergy (i get white filled bumps when I drink oj)

Yes, but of? Value?: See answer: https://www. Healthtap. Com/#user_questions/684218 & check: http://lpi. Oregonstate. Edu/infocenter/vitamins/vitaminc. Orange juice, more that oranges, is very high sugar & sugar drives obesity, diabetes mellitus, cv ds, high blood pressure. Allergies are behavioral responses, under internal control, occurring for any combination & variety of reasons, always self-diagnoses not doctors.

What can I eat before my colonoscopy? They told me clear liquids, but what does that mean? Coffee’s not clear, but they said I can have that. What about orange juice or soda?

What can I eat before my colonoscopy? They told me clear liquids, but what does that mean? Coffee’s not clear, but they said I can have that. What about orange juice or soda?

Your endoscopist: Should have given you instructions for your prep the day before your colonoscopy. In general you need to be on a clear liquid diet for 24 hours prior to your colonoscopy. Clear liquids is any thing you can see thru with the restriction of no red food products such as red jello or popsicles. Try to drink at least 60-80 oz of fluids during your prep day.

Is orange juice unhealthy how much would be too much

Is orange juice unhealthy how much would be too much

Orange: Orange juice is tricky - we've been told for years how healthy it is, right? True, it has vitamin c, calcium (if you buy the calcium fortified stuff), and it tastes good, but there are a few other things to keep in mind: - an 8 oz glass of oj has almost as much sugar as a can of soda - oj has little to no fiber, so that sugar rush can cause an Insulin spike which eventually leads to high cholesterol, diabetes, high blood pressure and weight gain. Eating the whole fruit is much better for you because the fiber found in the fruit causes the sugars to be digested more slowly which avoids the Insulin spike - the stuff you buy in the carton has been processed with many chemicals to increase shelf life - even the expensive stuff! If you must have oj, it's much better to squeeze it yourself. The 2 best bits of dietary advice I can give pertaining to juice is "everything in moderation" or "bypass the juice and just eat the fruit". Your body will thank you.

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.

Can I stink orange juice while on omnicef (cefdinir)?

Can I stink orange juice while on omnicef (cefdinir)?

Yes: Known food and drug interactions with Omnicef (cefdinir) include multivitamins with iron. Orange juice should be fine - I do not see any evidence that drinking orange juice will decrease its effectiveness. You may consider eating or taking a probiotic (like yogurt) to re-establish your healthy gut flora. (reference: lexicomp).

Doesn't matter: That doesn't matter. It's a matter of taste only. The only thing that matters is to make sure it's pure juice with no added sugar.

Is orange juice the best way to kick start one's metabolism in the morning after waking up?

Is orange juice the best way to kick start one's metabolism in the morning after waking up?

Part of a good start: In general, foods are in their healthiest form with a minimum of processing. So an orange provides a better ratio of fiber and vitamins to sugar than orange juice. But orange juice is often fortified with calcium and vitamin d. For people with diabetes or who have trouble with low sugar spells, it needs to be balanced with some protein.

If you mix any juice with milk will that make you feel sick? Or is it just orange juice and milk?

If you mix any juice with milk will that make you feel sick? Or is it just orange juice and milk?

Most folks feel fine: Most people can have both juice and milk with their breakfasts, and drink them at the same time without any unusual symptoms. That means mixing juice and milk does not cause a person to become sick (so there may be another reason for one's symptoms, rather than the juice or milk themselves). Is there gastric reflux, lactose intolerance, food allergies, etc...? Also, juice has too much sugar.
