Side Effects Of Drinking ORS When Not Diarrhea?
Hello inge ..
Thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com
I try to help answer yes
Oralit is a drug containing CaCl2, Sodium Clroida, Glucose anhydrous, and Sodium bicarbonate, the function of the content is to replace electrolyte fluids and minerals that are lacking in the body due to dehydration caused by several conditions such as vomiting, diarrhea, to excessive activity. Ways and rules of drinking ORS is by dissolving the liquid or powder in water. Can be taken before or after meals.
In adults with:
mild dehydration can use 50ml of ORS liquid / kg body weight taken every 4-6 hours
moderate dehydration can use 100ml of ORS liquid / kg body weight taken every 4-6 hours
If ORS is used to stabilize fluid balance in diarrhea, use:
mild diarrhea can use 100-200ml of oralit fluid / kg body weight in a day
chronic diarrhea 15ml oralit fluid / kg body weight per hour until the diarrhea stops.
So far the side effects that arise in the use of ORS are not appropriate, can be nausea, abdominal bloating due to the amount of fluid in the body that enters, to high levels of calcium in the blood, but so far it rarely happens if the use is in accordance with the advice of the doctor .
In the use of ORS, you should consult it directly to the doctor, so you get a dose or therapy that suits your condition. For the state of lack of fluids in the body, I recommend consuming mineral water according to the recommended minimum of 2L / day, water also has benefits including: maintaining healthy skin, smoothing the digestive tract, preventing dehydration, providing energy to the muscles so as not to cause fatigue in the muscles.
Generally the cause of dry and peeling skin, can be due to several things such as: lack of fluids in the body, the use of inappropriate or excessive soap, and also cold weather and low humidity. Some things you can do at home to deal with dry skin on your body part is to meet your drinking water needs, which is at least 2L / day, eat healthy foods such as green fruits and vegetables, this also helps to provide vitamins to your body and skin, apply lotion to coat your skin so it does not get dry and is easy to peel.
If you feel weak, dizzy, headaches, until a decrease in consciousness. Immediately to the doctor, to get further treatment.
Thank you, I hope this helps ...
