BRAT diet and Fluids

Detailed Answer:
Hi,
Thanks for posting your query.
I am Dr.R.K and I am pleased to assist you.

The vomiting and diarrhea could be due to a stomach bug. Stool test may be done to confirm it.

You are more prone for dehydration. To remain well hydrated drink enough fluids and also rehydration solution. A wet tongue and good urine output are indicators of good hydration.

As far as diet is concerned, you can take BRAT diet ( Banana, Rice, Apple sauce and Toast).

Include yogurt also in your diet.

I hope that answers your query.
Let me know if I can assist you further.
Regards,
Dr.R.K.
