Hello and welcome to Healthcare Magic. Thanks for your query.
Passing stools immediately after meals could be indicative of a parasitic infection
. Certain parasitic infections are more common in people with HIV
. Treatment is with appropriate antibiotics, after confirming the diagnosis by a stool examination or culture. You have mentioned that a stool culture & sensitivity test has been done already and iv antibiotics have been started. It may take a few days for the infection to clear completely, and so you'll have to be patient. In the meantime please ensure that she takes adequate fluids and a bland diet. If she is having multiple episodes of loose stools, then she can take Oral Rehydration solution (ORS
), to prevent dehydration
and replenish the water and salt loss.
