What is Diarrheas:
Diarrhoea is one of the most common health complaints. It can range from a mild, temporary condition, to a potentially life-threatening one. Globally, an estimated 2 billion cases of diarrheas disease occur each year, and 1.9 million children under the age of 5 years, mostly in developing countries, die from diarrhoea. Diarrheas is characterised by abnormally loose or watery stools. Some people frequently pass stools, but they are of normal consistency. This is not diarrheas. Similarly, breastfed babies often pass loose, pasty stools. This is normal. It is not diarrheas.
Mild cases of acute diarrhoea may resolve without treatment. Persistent or chronic diarrheas will be diagnosed and any underlying causes will be treated in addition to the symptoms of diarrhoea. There is mixed evidence for the role of probiotics in diarrhoea. They may help prevent traveler's diarrhoea. In children, there is evidence that they might reduce diarrhoea illness by 1 day. Probiotics are available in capsules, tablets, powders, and liquids, and may be purchase online.
