High doses: Of Vitamin C can cause diarrhea, and some people are more sensitive to Vitamin C than others. Generally only high doses >2000mg can cause side effects like upset stomach and diarrhea. The diarrhea may be due to an osmotic effect from the high levels of Vitamin C. This draws more water back into the intestines to help dilute the Vitamin C, which then leads to diarrhea. Hope this helps! ...Read more

Low level of vitamin B12 and vitamin d can cause IBS with diarrhea or IBS diarrhea causes low level of vitamin B12 and vitamin d?
Low B12: If you have low levels of b12- that needs to be investigated and treated. There is a cause for a low B12 level. Untreated it can lead to irreversible neurologic damage. While the cause can be dietary, there are more serious causes such as pernicious anemia- an autoimmune disease. So I suggest an investigation into why low b12. ...Read more

I drank a lot of ginger honey tea, and green tea + orange juice and spicy foods and then got diarrhea. Did vitamin C cause it?
Diarrhea, light headed, head ache & hot flashes. Could I b dehydrated. Or vitamin C interaction from 1 tablet last night? Didn't eat much today...
Certainly could be: Dehydration is always a concern with diarrhea and would be the most likely explanation for developing light-headedness after/with a period of diarrhea. The headache and heat intolerance may be related as well but are less likely to improve simply with hydration. The vitamin C is not a likely cause here. Drinking plenty of fluids, water, sports drinks, thin soup/broth, will be important. ...Read more
What could cause neuropathy, constant diarrhea that is dark in colour, and bloody stools? Normal thyroid, liver, kidney, glucose and vitamins, 29 y o m
I am pregnant (19 weeks). I was sick (diarrhea & bloated stomach). I did not eat a lot of vegetable, meat, milk in the past 10 days. I was eating chicken soup, banana and prenatal vitamin (jamieson). Will this impact the baby?
Probably not.: Even if you got a little dehydrated and had low-grade fever the answer would still be no. Only severe dehydration and prolonged high fevers could adversely impact the pregnancy and increase the risk of bleeding or pregnancy loss. No long-term effects should be expected from your fetus provided the pathogen did not cross the placenta. Listeria monocytogenes is a pathogen that could cause fetal loss. ...Read more
