Suggest treatment for diarrhea and imbalance issues

My husband has been having diarrhea for the last five days or so, and normally a total insomniac, he has not been able to do anything but sleep all day. He s also complained of balance problems. He has bi-polar disorder, and for at least the first few days, he also was having mild episodes. He had just come back from spending a month at Bombay Beach in the desert to write, but does not know any particular reason that could have caused his symptoms.

Hello dear

Warm welcome to
I have evaluated your query for your husband in details .

* The issue seems due to intestine infection with systemic manifestations
giving fluid electrolyte imbalance .
* Primary guidelines till he meets his doctor for vital parameters
assessment :

Consume plenty of liquids in form of boiled water , lemon juice , coconut water , home made juices , organic tea , coffee , butter milk etc .
Prefer soft , light , bland , vegan diet with fresh curd preferably .

Avoid all types of oily , spicy , non veg , hot beverages , junk foods , dairy fat , milk , aerated drinks till recovery .

Intake of PPI ( as omeprazole ) , antibiotics ( with metronidazole on pack )
Racecadrotil as an anti secretory agent help faster recovery , which requires prescription with your doctor .

Hope this will help to clear your doubt .
Wishing him fine recovery .
