    Default How much Gatorade a day for ohss?

    I had EPU yesterday and went back to hospital last night I had x rays and morphine. Today I'm feeing better but still pain and lots of bloating.

    Im eating lots of protein as well as my gym protein powder, water electrolytes and Gatorade. How much Gatorade should I be drinking a day?

    I'm glad you're feeling a little better now , Mrs P <3 purely for the sugar content, and with the other electrolytes you're having, try not to have *too* much gatorade. Is there anyone who can pop to the chemist for you? I'd highly recommend hydralite - it's similar to gatorade, but has far less sugar?

    I hope you feel much better really soon

    Thanks :-) I have some but 10 serves worth I'll send mum to get me some more when she heads out after. 30g sugar per Gatorade drink is insane lol

    I'm trying to cut out most sugar (processed) from my diet - yeah, a bit of a fad-girl, but it's honestly made me feel better and (TMI) it's helped lessen candida in my gut and err... elsewhere. I was told by FS to have loads of pear-juice to combat constipation, but pear juice has so much sugar! I'm going a bit easy on myself to be honest, around this time, as some extra sugar is *so* worth the potential outcomes - no backing up and maybe a baby!

    I eat a pretty clean, unprocessed low sugar diet so I'm the same! I've got pear juice for constipation I figure natural sugar is better than refined.

    Mrs P you need at least 3lt per day or more to help with OHSS.

    You can also try prune juice for constipation.

    I'm fortunate in that i *love* prunes hehe. I have to really watch how many I eat, for obvious reasons! I've been having a glass or 2 of pear juice and a handful of prunes a day and have had no real issue. In saying that, i didn't get OHSS fortunately - low AMH and only one ovary producing mature follies.

    Gatorade is just for the electrolytes. If you're having other electrolyte drinks instead (which I would advise. e.g. Gastrolyte) you don't need the Gatorade. Besides, it's full of sugar so the gastrolyte is better anyway.

    Good luck! Hope you feel better!

    Oh just saw about the other bit.

    I don't see how juice would help constipation - far better to actually eat a pear! It's the fibre in fruit that helps in that respect. And this is why fruit juice is fairly useless - it doesn't have the fibre, but it has sugar and acids which are bad for your teeth.

    Just eat bananas and pears, or have some metamucil.

    Drink pear or prune juice and see what happens with your bowel movements lol

    Pear juice after my daughter was born was brilliant and at home I have prune juice to get things moving. Works a charm.

    I was reding abut gatorade the sodium and potassium is what helps too
