Can I Eat Chicken Noodle Soup With Diarrhea

How does chicken soup help for Diarrhea?

For an upset stomach, the American College of Gastroenterology recommends broth-based soups over other types because they are:

  • High in sodium
  • Low in fat
  • High in water

Soup’s salt encourages your body to absorb more water, which helps your body replace the fluids lost due to upset stomach. If you have high blood pressure, however, go for the low-salt varieties so that you can still benefit from the fluids. Soups that aren’t fried in fat are also easy to digest, and your stomach can handle them fairly well—even if you’ve recently had nausea or reflux.

Can I Eat Chicken Noodle Soup With Diarrhea

The best (and most recommended) diet to follow when experiencing diarrhea is the BRAT diet. This curiously named food plan stands for: Bananas, rice, applesauce, and toast. Notice a trend? These bland foods are low-fiber, which will help firm your stool and calm your stomach.

In the meantime, highly spiced and complex foods can irritate your intestines, making your diarrhea worse. That is, consume innocuous food or else you might end up spitting flaming liquid for all of eternity! not exactly . but you get the point.

It should be noted that long-term use of the BRAT diet is not recommended, as these foods lack the main nutrients your body needs to function. Tread lightly, and ease yourself back onto more complex foods when recovering from an episode of diarrhea.
