Treatment for Diarrhea

DiarrheaThe management of diarrhea in the household consists of the following three rules (the ABC of diarrhea):
1. DC supply,
2. Drink plenty,
3. Consultations.


Continuous feeding is not to interrupt the normal diet, eat more often to compensate for loss of appetite, add one or two teaspoons of vegetable oil to food to provide energy, not introducing new foods as long as diarrhea, only to avoid very concentrated or highly spiced and sweetened. Keeping food during diarrhea, accelerates the normalization of bowel function, including digestion and absorption of food. It also favors the hydration of the patient to provide water carriers for intestinal absorption and offset the loss by diarrhea.
