Avoiding Body Dehydration When You Have Diarrhea


When you are experiencing diarrhea, one of the biggest complications is dehydration. Your body loses a considerable amount of water and fluids, making it difficult to carry out its normal functions. Some signs of dehydration include thirst, dry mouth and tongue, feeling tired, or light-headedness. Although dehydration is treatable, in more serious and prolonged cases, it can be life-threatening and cause permanent damage to your body’s organs.

Hence, here are some tips to replenish the body with needed fluids and electrolytes to recover from diarrhea:

  • Drink plenty of water and/or buy an oral rehydration solution from the pharmacy (which is a combination of water and salt, containing electrolytes that your body also needs).
  • You may also drink fruit juices and sports drinks but pay attention to the sugar level to prevent worsening your diarrhea.
  • If your diarrhea is severe, ask a home visits doctor or nurse to administer fluids via IV therapy.
