Is My Diet Causing My Sore Tongue?

My tongue is sore almost constantly. Especially the sides. Should I change my diet? What could cause this? Soreness of the tongue happens from time to time and there are a variety of causes.

In general, a diet that is deficient in folic acid and vitamin B-12 may cause your tongue to appear reddish and painful. That said, minor infections or irritations are the most common cause of tongue soreness.

Heavy smoking can irritate the tongue and make it painful. The herpes virus (HSV-1) that is the typical culprit to give you "canker sores" can cause painful ulcers on the tongue.

    I have had a white coating on my tongue for over a month now. My Dr gave me medicine for oral thrush and also what they call magic mouthwash and nothing has helped.
    she said she does not know what it is and if it does not cause me any pain then not to worry. She did suggest I email my bariatric surgeon to see if it has to do with my surgery. Still waiting for an answer.
    just wondering if anyone else here has had this problem, i am around 9 weeks out from surgery.

    The white tongue is also a symptom of ketosis - which might be the first thing to look at if you've not already.
    I use a tongue scraper on mine..... which helps a lot.

    Thanks Sparkle
    I have read several articles on ketosis, I don't think that is it because they all say it only lasts for about a week. I have had this for over a month.
    I will look into buying some ketosis stix to check though.
    Thanks again

  • Diabetes Sore Feet

    People living with diabetes are prone to having foot problems, often because of two complications of diabetes: nerve damage (neuropathy) and poor circulation. Neuropathy causes loss of feeling in your feet, taking away your ability to feel pain and discomfort, so you may not detect an injury or irritation. Poor circulation in your feet reduces your ability to heal, making it hard for even a tiny cut to resist infection. Having diabetes increases ...
