Drink Probiotic Milk When You Have Diarrhea?
Morning, is it good to drink Y * cult when you have diarrhea? Are there any side effects? Thank you
Hello Erlangga, thank you for the question for HealthReplies.com.
Lactobacillus casei (Lactobacillus casei shirota - the bacteria found in Y * kult drinks is one of the strains of Lactobacillus casei) is a good bacteria that normally occurs in the human digestive tract. Apart from being in the digestive tract, these bacteria can also be found in the urinary tract and reproductive tract. Different from pathogenic bacteria that can cause disease, the presence of normal bacteria in the human body can actually help prevent pathogenic bacteria from multiplying, so their existence is very important for the health of the human body.
It is actually okay to take probiotics when you have diarrhea. As long as you don't have other health problems that cause a weakened immune system (for example, you have diarrhea or you are on cancer chemotherapy), taking probiotics will not cause certain dangerous side effects. Mild side effects include flatulence and abdominal pain.
Although there is no prohibition on the consumption of probiotics during diarrhea, the benefits of giving probiotics during diarrhea are also controversial. Giving probiotics will most likely only be useful for preventing and overcoming diarrhea caused by giving antibiotics (giving antibiotics can kill good bacteria in the intestine as well so that diarrhea can occur). If you experience diarrhea due to other digestive problems such as colitis, giving probiotics can also help deal with this diarrhea. However, giving probiotics is unlikely to help much if diarrhea is caused by a bacterial, viral, parasitic, or fungal infection, or due to food poisoning.
