Orange Juice Allergy Symptoms
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. ...Read more
Allergies occur when your immune system is triggered by envirionmental factors it should ignore--for example, pollen in the air, or dander on a cat or dog--and creates cells to fight against them. An allergic reaction typically causes itching, congestion, or drainage, and ...Read more
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. ...Read more
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! ...Read more

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. ...Read more
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. ...Read more
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

Yes: Known food and drug interactions with Omnicef (cefdinir) include multivitamins with iron.

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. ...Read more
Does the fiber or anything else from orange juice affect how medications are absorbed in general?
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. ...Read more
Today in the morning I drank a glass of orange juice is it okey if I drink it at night also? Is it bad for health
OK: You can drink it anytime you want. Keep in mind it also has calories so as long as you don't overdo it, you can drink it anytime of the day. ...Read more
I've been sick all week so all I drank was orange juice and pedialyte. Is that ok? It's been 5 days. I'm finally better today.
Last few days the smell of my urine has been almost exactly as that of an orange juice. Is this something I should be concerned about?
Can I give freshly squeezed orange juice to my 7 month old? I hv heard citrus fruits should not be given before one year. Is it true? Why?
Can or should?: Nothing stops a parent from trying stuff because a friend suggested it and nothing bad was noted. Yet there are reasons to reconsider. Infants have a poorly developed sense of taste and don't savor these items, just because you do. Oj is also not necessary to a balanced nutrition.I look at oj and all other juices as flavored sugar, and a set up to teach babies to crave sweets. ...Read more
Yes: A woman can drink orange juice while nursing, if she was fine drinking orange juice in the past. There is not a reason for her to avoid orange juice, unless she starts to have reactions to it. If she thinks the baby is getting a reaction after each time she (the mom) drinks orange juice, then the mom should talk with the pediatrician about it. ...Read more
