Ever wonder if you can drink caffeine with an ostomy?

The quick answer is Yes! Caffeine can be consumed while you have an ostomy

but there are a few things to remember.

Caffeine is a mild diuretic. While it may increase the need to urinate, it may or may not

have a risk for dehydration. In the case of an ostomy it creates quicker and more liquid output so that can have an effect on dehydration. one should consume at least the recommended daily intake of water with or without drinking coffee.To be safe I would try and drink a little more.

Caffeine is also a stimulant for the brain, but it also helps jump start other things

in the body, mainly output. You will see an increase in output while you drink coffee but it

is usually more liquid than anything else. Coffee can aid with constipation relief also.

So don't go tired anymore Coffee is ok with drink!. And as always please consult your doctor before making any dietary changes with an ostomy.
