Causes Of Diarrhea And Dizziness?
Good morning. My name is Vita I want to ask, my father yesterday afternoon just took a large glass of herbal medicine bitter (bitter leaves), but in the afternoon he felt dizzy and weak. Then he took a tablet of paracetamol. The morning was no longer dizzy but now he has diarrhea continuously. What is the cause? Is it because you drink too much of it? Thank you
Hi Vita, thanks for asking.
Diarrhea, as is well known, is one of the most common digestive disorders. The causes of diarrhea are very diverse. Diarrhea can occur due to digestive infections, expired food consumption, allergic to one food ingredient, helminthiasis, irritation of the walls of the digestive tract, and so forth.
Diarrhea experienced by your father, is likely due to your father does not match one of the ingredients contained in these herbs. The ingredients in herbal medicine consumed can cause allergic reactions or irritation to the intestinal wall. While this time stop consuming these herbs. Need to be clarified about the diarrhea, how often the frequency, how the color and smell of feces that come out, whether the BAB accompanied by mucus and blood. This needs to be explained because it is also possible that your father has diarrhea due to infection. Give your father enough to drink, try to drink water interspersed with drinking fluids that contain electrolytes. Ideally, the best liquid to consume when diarrhea is ORS because the electrolyte content is sufficient. If it's not there, you can try it with chicken broth or vegetable broth. Drink one glass of 200-300 ml after every bowel movement. It is best if your father eats low-fiber foods during this acute period of diarrhea.
If diarrhea does not improve or actually worsens, if diarrhea is accompanied by mucus and blood, if severe nausea, vomiting accompanied by fever occur, you should immediately consult a doctor. Please do not take antibiotics without doctor's advice because they can make diarrhea worse.
Hopefully this answer can help your father. Regards.
