Diarrhea is the condition of having atleast three loose or liquid bowel movements each day with or without fever or vomiting.
Infectious diarrhea or Acute gastroenteritis (AGE) manifests in an inflammation of the gastrointestinal tract, affecting the stomach lining as well as that of the small intestine.
Typically, the AGE diarrhoea lasts less than seven days and not longer than 14 days. It often lasts for a few days & can result in dehydration due to fluid loss.
Though often considered a benign disease, Infectious diarrhea remains a major cause of morbidity and mortality in children around the world. Each year children younger than five years experience an estimated 1.4 billion episodes of diarrhea, leading to 123 million clinic visits, 9 million hospitalisations and 1.87 million deaths.
In the developed world, Infectious diarrhea is usually a mild disease and death is a rare outcome. However, diarrhea is associated with a substantial number of hospitalisations and high costs.
The causes of Infectious diarrhea include a wide range of viruses, bacteria, and parasites. By far, viruses remain the most common cause of infectious diarrhea in children, both in the developed and developing countries. Rotavirus, the most important viral pathogen worldwide, responsible for 29% of all diarrhea related deaths among children.
In the United States, rotavirus is responsible for 410 000 physician visits and 55 000 – 70 000 hospitalisations each year. Rotavirus infection follows seasonal variation, with an increased incidence in winter and a decrease in summer.
Ezegut helps in maintaining the gut flora.
Competitive expulsion of pathogens by production of pathogens inhibitory substances, blocking of pathogenic bacterial cells adhesion sites, nutrient competition with pathogens.
Ezegut helps in maintaining the gut flora. Ezegut is an effective therapeutic agent for treatment of acute gastroenteritis, particularly rotavirus associated disease, in young children.
