Can isotonic drinks be consumed by diarrhea sufferers?

1 Answer:

Good afternoon, thanks for the question

The initial step to deal with acute dehydration due to diarrhea is fluid rehydration or replacement of fluids that are lost orally. Oral rehydration solution must contain enough sugar and sodium or salt mixed with water. The mixture can be made at home with a mixture of 2 teaspoons of sugar, 1/2 teaspoon of salt, and mixed with boiled water. It also can use ORS sachets dissolved in water.

Energy drinks or isotonic drinks are best consumed in conditions of loss of fluid for example due to excessive sweating due to exercise in healthy individuals. But for the case of diarrhea this type of drink is not appropriate, because it contains too much sugar while the sodium content is small. This type of drink might be used in cases of mild dehydration which is a last resort if oral rehydration liquid sugar and salt cannot be obtained.

That's all, hope you can help
Wassalam.
