Pediatrician 's  Response
Dear Robyn I am sorry to hear about your child's illness. I think stating LBM you meant loose bowel movement. Faecal analysis is genaral and microscopical examination of stool. It suggest he has got some infection but I am sure his stool also has been sent for bacterial study in other words for culture and sensitivity.If you are worried then please take the child to your own Doctor he will send him to hospital if he feels that is necessary. In the mean time give the child oral fluids eg electrol repeatedly for the hydration. Kindest regards.
