Diarrhoea is one of the common illnesses that affect a large number of people. It is a symptom and not a disease. There can be several causes of diarrhea but the most common is infections. Diarrhoea is a leading cause of illness and death among children in developing is also an important cause of poor or under-nutrition. This is because children tend to eat less during an episode of diarrhoea. Also, diarrhoea can adversely affect the digestion of food. As a result, the body may not be able to utilize the food effectively. The body requires additional nutrients during any infection in order to fight the germs that cause the disease. Inadequate diet and poor digestion together adversely affect the nutritional status of a child. Diarrhoea and/or its complications can be prevented by simple and effective measures.
