Hi fellow sufferers,
Has anyone ever had a problem with soft drinks. I am not great at drinking water or fizzy soda drinks and last night my wife decided that I should be consuming more liquid.
She produced a bottle of the Oasis brand of a summer fruits non-fizzy soft drink. It tasted fine and throughout an hour or so I consumed the drink... After about another 30 minutes I started to get stomach pains and shortly thereafter needed to head promptly to the loo. The resultant dose of D was extreme to say the least.
I was fine prior to the drink so decided to read the contents listed on the bottle. Sugar, Fruit juices (various) ,Fruit and vegetable concentrates . Stabilisers, Sodium this and that potassium sulphate, preservatives and various sweeteners including Aspartame and Acesulfame K.
The drink basically tasted like it was a very pleasant water based diluted juice. I am also fairly sure that I have sampled this previously ,although maybe not a whole 500ml bottle in a fairly short time , without this violent result.
I feel certain this brought on the attack and I just wondered if any others out their have experienced similar.. I am beginning to think sulphate and sulphites are a problem because these preservatives are often found in wines , even low and non alcoholic wines, these also tend on occasions to produce a similar reaction.
look forward to any comments
