Gave up diet soda and have IBS and Gerd. Am On 60 mg dexilant (dexlansoprazole). Can I get heartburn from drinking iced tea? And I take my pill at night.

Gave up diet soda and have IBS and Gerd. Am On 60 mg dexilant (dexlansoprazole). Can I get heartburn from drinking iced tea? And I take my pill at night.

GERD: Good for you for giving up diet sodas! It is possible to have worse reflux from iced tea, but it is usually from the caffeine in the tea. If you're drinking caffeine free tea, it usually does not make GERD worse. As for the DexIlant, (dexlansoprazole) is best to take it 20 to 30 minutes before a meal. I would not recommend taking it at bedtime. Good luck. ...Read more

My skin is out of control all of a sudden. Think all the diet pepsi I drink has anything to do with it?

My skin is out of control all of a sudden. Think all the diet pepsi I drink has anything to do with it?

Absolutely: The acidity of the sodas at a pH of 2 represents 100, 000 times the number of hydrogen ions of water. This shuts down all of the enzymes systems of the body and intereferes with toxin removal from the body. Secondary removal of toxins is through the skin and this causes skin irrititation. Challenge: stop the sodas and other acids for 30 days and see the difference. ...Read more

Why does my stomach hurt so bad after drinking Diet Pepsi?

Why drink it then?: I can think of lots of reasons why you may be experiencing an adverse reaction to a carbonated beverage that contains multiple chemicals (artificial flavors, coloring, and sweeteners). May I suggest you try drinking water, and assessing your response. My answer then becomes quite different if your stomach pain is limited to Diet Pepsi or is generalized to all liquids and ingestants. ...Read more

I don't drink soda and its been months since my last. Will the diet pepsi help with weight loss or the opposite?

I don't drink soda and its been months since my last. Will the diet pepsi help with weight loss or the opposite?

No: Studies have not shown that drinking diet drinks helps with weight loss. If anything, the studies show that it may actually contribute to weight gain. Part of that is duet to the thousands of times sweeter taste of artificial sweeteners then programming our brain to crave more sweets! Skip the sodas, get some vegetables. ...Read more

How is diet soda bad for you? I drink 2-4 liters per day, for the last 2 years. How would I benefit from kicking this habit?

TOXIC, many benefits: I believe diet soda is very toxic. Most diet sodas contain aspartame, a dangerous chemical that should have never been approved. It causes many adverse effects.

Why I can't stop drinking diet soda? It's like a drug to me. Why is that?

Its the aspartame: Aspartame has free methyl alcohol which is classified as a narcotic. It causes chronic methanol poisoning which affects the Dopamine system of the brain and causes the addiction. You can get free, but there may be withdrawal effects to get past. Then, steer clear of it anywhere it may be. Good luck! ...Read more

Other than medical conditions & lotta meds. I have LOW sodium. I only drink diet soda (which HAS sodium) 12-14 cans daily! Why would sodium b low??

Other than medical conditions & lotta meds. I have LOW sodium. I only drink diet soda (which HAS sodium) 12-14 cans daily! Why would sodium b low??

Too much soda: That is far too much soda. It's making your sodium low based on how your kidneys will handle the soda you are drinking. Your body very tightly regulates your sodium, so you will mostly just pee out the sodium. However, if you drink more volume of liquid than your kidneys can get rid of, then you end up holding on to the fluid and this dilutes the sodium you have in your body. ...Read more
