Causes Of Diarrhea In The Elderly With Stroke?
my father had just 1 diarrhea today. Why did my father diarrhea why? What is the medicine for diarrhea? Before my father had never diarrhea and food intake was not from the mouth but from the tube. What is the possibility that my father is lacking fluids and salt?
Diarrhea / diarrhea can be caused by several factors including:
Infections of the digestive tract
Side effects of several types of drugs
Food intolerance and food allergies
Inflammation of the digestive tract
Irritable bowel syndrome
Does the stool have mucus or blood? Are other complaints accompanied by abdominal pain, nausea, or fever? I suggest that your father go to the doctor directly so that further tests can be done to ascertain the cause of the diarrhea so that your father can get further maximum treatment. If necessary, a stool test and a blood test can be done on your father.
While waiting to see a doctor, your father can do the following tips:
Get enough rest
Make sure the family preparing the food has washed their hands thoroughly before preparing food intake
Make sure the tools and ingredients are also in clean condition
Give enough fluids for father
Wash your hands frequently, especially after urinating and before preparing food
Hope it helps you,
