dumping with artificial sweetners



Recommended Posts

I'm having surgery in a month, and I've got a question for all the vets out there. Do any of you dump with artificial sweeteners? I'd prefer stevia, of course, but Water additives are very difficult to find with stevia. My program says crystal light is fine I've found some by crystal light that are sweetened by stevia, but they have added caffeine. . However, the vast majority of crystal light is made with aspartame. Any insight would be helpful.

Stur liquid Water Enhancer is made with stevia

But a word of caution

Your ability to stomach stevia may change post surgery

I used only Stevia in my life prior to surgery and now more than one serving makes me have a reaction now similar to dumping and i was sleeved (dumping usually does not happen with the sleeve)

Safe journey

I had no problems with artificial sweeteners or with no calorie natural sweeteners such as Stevia. Eating too many Sugarless Haribo Gummy Bear can produce intense diarrhea. https://www.buzzfeed.com/michaelrusch/haribo-gummy-bear-reviews-on-amazon-are-the-most-insane-thin So I would caution care in using this type of artificial sweetener. Lycasin is a maltitol Syrup with properties of taste and sweetness ideal for the preparation of sugar-free syrups, lozenges or jellies, according to manufacturer Roquette.com. Little known to most gummy bear connoisseurs, however, the side effects of Lycasin are gas, bloating and diarrhea.

I have been wanting to try Stur. I finally found it in a local grocery store. So that will be the next on my list to purchase. Thanks for the reply!

Thanks for the response. I'll be sure to stay away from the Gummy Bears.

I dump with too many sugar alcohols which means I can’t do many of the Protein Bars.

I'm having trouble with gastritis and it's burning up my esophagus. My Dr ordered the EGD with bravo, however my gastritis was so bad they didn't put the camera in. I'm seeing the Dr on Monday, has anyone else had this happen? Did they switch you to the bypass? After already having the sleeve I'm concerned that it will cause more problems than its worth having but I see no other options to fix this. I wake up in the middle of the night with vomit coming up from my stomach and it burns my esophagus so bad I have to use my rescue inhaler just to breathe, any information would really be appreciated.
