How much/often should I drink probiotics if im eliminating wheat and dairy from my diet? I have an inflamation in my stomach and when i eat it hurts

How much/often should I drink probiotics if im eliminating wheat and dairy from my diet? I have an inflamation in my stomach and when i eat it hurts

Probiotic: Probiotics are usually dosed once a day, with a meal. Make sure you have a brand that delivers active colonies to you. If you have gastritis, the probiotic may not help that by itself. I see you're on omeprazole. Hopefully your doctor has tested you for h pylori which is 1 cause of gastritis. Ulcers can also cause pain with meals, and shortly afterwards as well. ...Read more

I have a habit of eating raw rice. i am addicted to that. My mom says my haemoglobin level will decrease and i will become anemic  if i eat raw rice. ?

What kind of rice?: If you are eating polished rice and do not have sufficient intake of other foods, it could cause nutritional deficiencies worse than anemia. For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, low fat milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form. Practice safe sex. Get HPV vaccine. ...Read more

I have bad dandruff I cured everything cause I cut out certain foods from my diet but today I ate half a piece of him with soy will I get a reaction?

No way to tell: I'm glad you found something that worked. If you decide that a restrictive diet is too inconvenient, or if your dandruff returns, it's very manageable, and nobody can say that the various remedies (mostly mineral products) aren't "nature's own." Best wishes. ...Read more

I am on miralax (polyethylene glycol) & dolcolax. I usually eat wheat and whole grains but i had some animal crackers that might have been white. I am scared i will get constipated. Is it possible or will i be fine?.

You should be fine: Daily recommended dose of fiber is 25-30 gms and you can't get it by just eating foods. Add a fiber supplement to your diet such as metamucil or konsyl and take it on a regular basis. Small amount of animal crackers should not affect your bowel habbits. ...Read more

If I have Diarrhea will I not get the calories, nutrients, or protein from the stuff I eat earlier?

If I have Diarrhea will I not get the calories, nutrients, or protein from the stuff I eat earlier?

See below: The stuff you ate more than 6-8 hours before diarrhea would have been digested and absorbed and will provide the nutrition you are questioning. For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Drink enough water daily, so that your urine is mostly colorless. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form. Practice safe sex, if you have sex. ...Read more

I have to have my gallblader removed, how different will my digestion be, and diet have to be once it is gone? I eat lots of nuts, seeds, fruit, salad

I have to have my gallblader removed, how different will my digestion be, and diet have to be once it is gone? I eat lots of nuts, seeds, fruit, salad

See answer: If healthy, no major change, other than the GB helps digest fats by secreting bile acids, so some people may have to decrease fatty meals, but most people have no issues at all. The foods you mention would all be fine to eat and would not cause any issues when your GB was removed. I had my GB removed due to Stones years ago, and I did not have to change my diet at all. Best wishes. ...Read more

I have tummy fat i used to drink a lot gave up completely eats healthy but don't exercise I have little fat in my liver bcz of alcohol how to reduce?

Fatty liver vs. fat: Fatty liver is not the same as having tummy fat. Fat cells replaced liver ells that died from alcohol toxicity. The fat cells just take up space. Congratulations on giving up alcohol. Getting out of the trap of addiction takes courage and strength. Now you are turning that strength toward a healthy lifestyle. That's great. To lose weight, avoid high fat foods, fried foods, starches and sugar. ...Read more

I have fatty liver from obesity.  I have been dieting and exercising. I don't want to damage my liver more but would it hurt to eat non diet food once in a while?

Have you lost weight: The best thing you can do for yourself is to change your lifestyle.....Not just go on a "diet". I don't know what you mean by "diet foods", but i think you are craving the "non-diet" foods because you have not found food that you like which are also healthy. Once you find these....You will rarely crave "non-diet" foods. See my website for more info: www.Jhsurgery.Com. ...Read more
