Suggest remedies for diarrhea
Pls read my suggestions below and write back to me about antibiotics
Hello ma'am and welcome.
Thank you for writing to us.
I have gone through your query with diligence and would like you to know that I am here. I too am worried about his heart, even more because he is on medications like lasix (diuretic) which promotes fluid loss from the body, when he is already losing a lot of fluids through diarrhoea. His blood sugar may also fluctuate due to the fluid loss, and also if this is in fact an infection.
I would recommend the following:
+Keep him strictly on a liquid diet
+Provide him with at least 3-4 litres of water each day, more if tolerated
+Stick to a bland diet
+Introduce probiotics to his diet, either natural ones (e.g. yogurt) or probiotics (drinks or edibles) that are readily available in medical or grocery stores
+Use loperamide (which should be available over-the-counter) that helps reduce the intensity and frequency of bowel movements
+Antibiotic coverage would be the main soldier in attacking the diarrhoea if at all it is caused by an infection, which we can confirm using a stool analysis and a blood count. If you can get your hands on any antibiotics, or have some at home, write back to me with their names, and how many you have (in number of each type)
I hope you find my response helpful. Please feel free to write back to me for any further clarifications, I am always here to help.
Thank you for your help.
Loperamide is a medication that reduces the frequency of diarrhoea
Hello once again.
Loperamide is an ingredient (usually marketed under the name IMODIUM in most countries I have worked in), is used in individuals suffering from diarrhoea, and is available over-the-counter in most countries. Check in your medical stores to see if you can get your hands on it.
As for antibiotics, if you cannot get your hands on them, then just follow all the other instructions given in my previous response ma'am, and let me know if there is anything else I can help you with.
