I am dealing with a TERRIBLE case of the stomach flu. Can't keep anything down. I am supposed to eat dry toast, applesauce, bananas, and drink pedialyte. I think pedialyte has sugar in it but I need something as I can't eat any of the normal allowable foods right now.

Is it OK to have some sugary drinks just to replenish??

Any recommendations, anyone?? Feel terrible!!!!!!

yea... i know how you feel! I found that since the constant loss of fluid and inability to eat foods that are not hypoglycemic safe when feeling sick is a major problem. However, I found that I tolerate foods with a slightly higher sugar dosage than usual because your body simply doesn't have any energy. Try to drink as much veggie/chicken/beef broth as possible. Also, sugar free jello or maybe pudding. I usually end up not eating for a few days until I can tolerate my normal diet. Good luck!

Try some plain yogurt, that will help kill the virus, as well as straight, freshly squeezed lemon juice.
