Diet modifications when one is sick/having flu

Post by Ryan.carpediem »

how should i change my diet when I'm sick/having a bad flu besides taking panadol flumax, drinkings lots of water and trying to get more rest ie. more protein, more carbs, less fat? any foods i should eat more/eat less of?

I'm currently working on these now but really really have difficulty sleeping so wondering if there's any food/supplement that i can take to facilitate sleep...besides sleeping pills and milk. Does fish oil aid recovery from sickness?

Really appreciate this. thanks in advance
:D

when u get symptoms of flu, go high on Vit C and Zinc. Capsules, tablets or pills should work well.

Fibre wise, I don't know. Vegetables are good fibre I guess.

Sodium, can just add salt to your food lah.

haha... if u are sick already, just eat whatever that u can stomach lah. If cannot eat egg, then don't. Just give your body what it craves lah.

BTW, I never take panadol at all, any kind. 4 years already. Unless I am given painkiller(paracetamol, or panadol) by doctor when I sent there because of bike accident or major injury. I don't know, I feel that given time, your body can recover on its own. No need for panadol.

Panadol Flumax is a watered down version of Decolgen. (Panadol is VERY late in the formulation)

Get Decolgen from any pharmacy. It works much better.

Get well soon for 2009!

Should be the same or cheaper than Flumax.

They are placed in the same section.

Honestly, I don't recall.

You could check before buying.

I found this stuff while doing a search online on the contraindications of Decolgen...dunno what to make of this.... :?

http://www.phenylpropanolamine-ppa.com/

Though they've been removed from the local pharmacies months ago, in case you still have them in your first aid box at home, please discard them
immediately. I heard that Decolgen has already been banned. You couldn't find them in all pharmacies. It's due to the same problem (i.e. bleeding in the brain for women). Confirmed that this is true and Singapore government is taking action.

Please read and copy this notice to the people you love. This is not a matter to be taken lightly. Stop taking anything containing the ingredient
Phenylpropanolamine. It has been linked to increased hemorrhagic stroke (bleeding in brain) among women ages 18-49 in the three days after starting use of medication. Problems were not found in men, but the FDA has recommended that everyone (even children) seek alternative medicines. Having taken a few of this medicine at one time or another, I called CVS to see if there was any truth to this e-mail. They said that it was so, and if have any of these products at home, I should stop using them. CVS has removed all products containing this chemical from their shelves.

That was back in 2000.

It is no longer in Decolgen. Decolgen basically has the same ingredients in Flumax but with a higher dose in the active ingredient minus caffeine.
