What Happens to Your Body When You Drink Ensure?

According to Drugs.com, drinking Ensure Plus formula can cause nausea, constipation, diarrhoea, changes in pulse, excessive fatigue, nervousness and confusion, frailty, dry mouth, seizures, mood changes, muscle cramps, frequent urination, trouble breathing, vomiting, thirst, and unintended weight loss. For people who take prescription drugs, the ingredients in Ensure could interact with the drugs and weaken or strengthen their effects.

Doctors say that Ensure is a good dietary supplement, but it shouldn’t be used instead of a normal diet because that would leave the body without important nutrients. If you only drink Ensure and don’t eat well, you could lose weight and get weak.

Drug.com says that if the pharmacokinetics and pharmacodynamics of two drugs are changed by taking them together, this could cause serious health problems.

Before taking Ensure or any other dietary formula, you should talk to your doctor. This is because the formula could cause health problems for people who already have type 2 diabetes, liver, pancreas, stomach, or intestine diseases, lactose intolerance, diarrhoea, dehydration, hyperglycemia, malnutrition, or kidney problems, according to Drugs.com. Depending on the person, there may be other side effects, and the best thing to do is to see a doctor.
