In the 21st century, diarrhea is not considered a dangerous disease in developed countries. At the same time, in third-world countries, more than 2,000 children die from the consequences of diarrhea every day.

Increasing of the frequency of bowel movements occurs, usually as a result of damage to the intestines by viruses, bacteria, and toxins. In rare cases, loose stool passes on its own. In most cases, measures have to be taken to treat diarrhea.

During diarrhea, the body loses fluid and electrolytes, dehydration develops. Together with the liquid, the body loses the micro- and macroelements necessary for life. Untimely provision of medical assistance to babies leads to rapid dehydration and, as a result, to death.

Diarrhea is especially dangerous for children under the age of 3, as at this age, the child’s body reacts more difficultly to the water-electrolyte disbalance, as a result of which the child’s kidney, heart, and brain malfunction develops.

What is not dangerous for adults can be fatal for children!

The main causes of diarrhea in children:

  • Viruses (rotaviruses, adenoviruses) or bacteria;
  • Food Poisoning;
  • If the child has liquid (watery) stool more than 3 times a day, this is a reason to start treatment.
  • Diarrhea can be accompanied by the following symptoms:
  • Pallor of the skin;
  • Dryness of the mucous membrane of the oral cavity;
  • Weakness and apathy;
  • Absence of urination;
  • Crying without tears
  • Abdominal pains;
  • Increase in body temperature.

The main danger of diarrhea is that it leads to dehydration. The first thing to do is to prevent dehydration, and in case of symptoms, see a doctor immediately.

How to prevent dehydration?

If you notice the first signs of diarrhea in your child and are not sure where to start, give your child D-ORS. The unique combination of two components in one drug will immediately solve two main problems – dehydration and intoxication. Timely use of D-ORS will prevent dehydration and speed up recovery.

D-ORS has no analogues in our country. It can be taken by both adults and children, starting from two years of age. Dosage depends on age: from 4 to 6 sachets per day, and the course of treatment can last up to 5 days [1].

The drug consists of two components:

  • Diosmectite is an intestinal enterosorbent;
  • Electrolytes for rehydration.

Diosmectite is a substance isolated from natural clay. Having a high adsorbing property, it removes pathogens from the body, reduces intoxication, volume and frequency of stool, protects the mucous membrane of the intestine. Electrolytes restore the water-electrolyte balance.

D-ORS is developed in accordance with the recommendations of the European Association of Pediatrics, Gastroenterology, Hepatology and Nutrition (ESPGHAN).

The drug cures not only the symptoms of diarrhea, but also the cause.

If you notice frequent and loose stools in your child, do not delay – give the child D-ORS.

D-ORS will soon return condition to normal. And the pleasant vanilla taste will make it easier for children to take the drug. It is important to remember that only a doctor can adequately assess the child’s condition and prescribe the correct treatment.
