Diarrhoea at night,e coli and salmonella test negative, virus

My 5 year old only has diarrhea at night. She was in the hospital a couple of days ago and all tests came back negative including ecoli and salamenella. Since all tests came back negative they are not sure what caused this and saying it is a virus . So they released her and told us to make sure she gets plenty of fluids. However, she still continues to have diarrhea only at night.

Short answer: glutein allergy.

The child could have allergy to some particular food.
Usually Milk or wheat, bournvita, or cereals, or pulses.
I recommend a liquid diet with isabgol husk (non medicated) along with a diet of curds and srikhand .
She can be given sprouted moong dal about 25 gms every day in morning as it contains plant steroids which are helpful to treat her present symptoms.

In the evenings at about 4 pm always give her an apple which helps to control diarrhea at night.
