Do you know that the following fruits may cause diarrhea?
1. Fresh fruits:
1) Apricot: eating a small fresh apricot immediately cause diarrhea in some people, especially when eating with a prune.
2) Berries: should be dry and firm and eaten within a few days of purchase, yet any moisture may cause mold and spoilage and increase your risk of diarrhea if eaten. Wild berries also may cause diarrhea.
3) Melons: may increase diarrhea in some people.
I’ve found out that cut, prepared fresh fruits (including pineapple) from the supermarkets can cause diarrhea sometimes.
2. Dried fruits: dried prunes, raisins, dates, figs, apricots, and etc. may cause or exacerbate diarrhea. Many dried fruits are preserved with sulfites or sulfur dioxide, which prevents discoloration and growth of mold and other microorganisms. Yet sulfur dioxide may cause diarrhea in sulfite sensitive people.
Try and find out which fresh/dried fruits cause diarrhea, and then avoid them.
“Diarrhea may cause dehydration, so drink at least 8 to 10 glasses of fluids to replace any lost fluids. These fluids could be water, green tea, vegetable broth or miso soup. Talk with your doctor if your diarrhea lasts more than two days.”
