Diarrhea is one of the most common conditions in which the affected individual passes thin, runny stools multiple times a day. If not addressed properly, it can lead to severe dehydration and electrolyte loss.
Diarrhea is an uncomfortable condition that calls for immediate action as severe water and mineral loss from the body can result in a drastic drop in blood pressure levels. Maintaining a good hydration status, though important, is not enough to address the problem.
Finding the underlying condition and fixing it to stop diarrhea should be a priority. At such time, seeking medical assistance from a healthcare helpline facility, such as Medvisit, can help in this case.
Symptoms of Diarrhea
Some of the most common symptoms of diarrhea include the following. However, it is not necessarily true that all symptoms appear in a single patient.
- Frequent, watery stool
- Abdominal pain
- Abdominal cramps
- Lowered Blood Pressure levels
How Can Medvisit Help You?
Having diarrhea requires immediate action, and it should not be left unnoticed. Symptoms worsen with each passed stool as with every stool, there are more water and electrolytes lost from the body. During this condition, a person should call for external help and have the right protocol followed to alleviate the frequency of the stools.
Seeking medical assistance becomes important if the frequency of the loose stools is on the increase and is not getting under control. Usually, it is recommended to seek medical guidance if diarrhea persists for more than two days. You must seek immediate help if you have been passing stools six times in a day with fever or bleeding.
Do not wait to call for medical assistance at all if you or your child (younger than 6 months) are suffering from diarrhea.
