1 Answer:

Dear Fadhilah,


Diarrhea is actually an increase in the frequency of bowel movements accompanied by a change in the consistency of the stool to become liquid. Diarrhea is caused by an imbalance in the digestive tract that can be triggered by many factors. Some of these may include:

Gastrointestinal infections due to poor food hygiene
side effects of certain drugs such as antibiotics
psychological stress condition
excessive consumption of alcohol or coffee
food poisoning
certain food allergies

The danger that threatens from diarrhea is actually dehydration. Diarrhea can last at any time as long as the fluids and electrolytes that come out can be replaced. Diarrhea that continues to be severe just before being taken to the hospital can usually have bad consequences because of the delay in handling fluids at home so that the blood vessels whose fluid volume has decreased considerably, will tend to "deflate". Furthermore, kidney failure can occur to heart failure depending on the severity of the complications. Therefore, even though diarrhea is a common condition, it should not be too late to treat it because at a certain level, diarrhea can be life threatening. Here we attach an article about diarrhea. May be useful.
