Is It Okay To Jump Rope When You Have Diarrhea?
Excuse me, is it safe when I do jump rope when I have diarrhea? (Sorry) because I have been defecating constantly.
Hello, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com
Acute liquid diarrhea is lower gastrointestinal disease, which is characterized by bowel movements more than 3 times a day or if it is consistently liquid even though only 1 time. Usually caused by a viral infection. However, it can also be caused by bacterial infections or non-infectious inflammatory reactions. Often triggered after consuming foods that are not hygienic or are stale or expired or moldy.
When someone is experiencing diarrhea, there will be loss of body fluids, blood sugar and electrolytes that the body needs. So that someone becomes weak and weak, lips are dry and often thirsty. Therefore, it is necessary to consume rehydration fluids or ORS containing water, sugar and electrolytes that the body needs. ORS can be purchased in packages or made at home.
Besides requiring ORS, a person who has diarrhea needs a rest to save energy. In addition, exercise will cause increased loss of body fluids and electrolytes through sweating and increased use of sugar as an energy source. So that exercise when diarrhea will only worsen the condition. Then it should be avoided.
Thus hopefully useful.
