Key goals in management of Diarrhoea
1. Reduce duration and severity of Diarrhoea: Use an anti-diarrhoeal treatment such as Dioclear to reduce stool output and duration of diarrhoea.
2. Prevent and treat dehydration: Keep up your fluid intake: Diarrhoea causes the body to loose fluids. To avoid dehydration it is important to take oral rehydration salts dissolved in water.
3. Prevent nutritional damage: The World Health Organization recommends that children/Adults with diarrhoea continue to eat as normal to ensure sufficient nutrients are present for recovery and repair of normal intestinal function.
4. Restore your flora in your gut to normal, by taking a probiotic.
