Enjoying roadside pani puri in the evening sometimes leads to an upset stomach the next day due to a stomach infection. It might also increase discomfort and uneasiness.
Diarrhoea is caused by gastroenteritis, a gut bug that cleanses on its own in a few days. However, it is often caused by contaminated food as well. In addition, diarrhoea can be a sign of another disorder, such as irritable bowel syndrome or inflammatory bowel syndrome.
Mostly the diarrhoea is mild to moderate, but in severe cases, it can lead to hospitalisation.

Diarrhoea is called Jhada (ઝાડા) in Gujarati. It is the medical condition in which you have over three liquid stools daily, more frequently than regularly.
Diarrhoea is the intestinal flu, which can happen for the following reasons:
Diarrhoea is not just restricted to the intestinal flu; the underwritten causes can also be the reason to increases infections:
Total diarrheal deaths in India among children aged 0-6 years were estimated to be 158,209 annually. The proportionate mortality due to diarrhoea in this age group was 9.1%. The average estimated incidence of diarrhoea in children aged 0-6 years was 1.71 and 1.09.
According to the National Family Health Survey-3 (NFHS-3) report, 9% of all under-five children suffered from diarrhoea in the last 2 weeks.
About 15 per cent of older adults in India suffer from diarrhoea (rural 17 per cent and urban-9 per cent). The prevalence of diarrhoea among older adults was highest in Mizoram (33.5 per cent), followed by Chhattisgarh (30.7 per cent), Bihar (30.2 per cent), and Rajasthan (30.2 per cent).
Other than loose motions, there are many digestive symptoms associated with diarrhoea:
Based on your medical history and symptoms, the diagnosis of diarrhoea is prepared.
The diagnosis is usually asked for when the condition is severe and requires serious medical assessment; otherwise, mild diarrhoea goes away in a week or less.
Some tests which are conducted to diagnose diarrhoea are:
To recover from diarrhoea, the patient should consume bland liquid foods and non-spicy and non-flavoured foods, which will help absorb the stool water and are easy to digest.
Probiotic-rich foods like curd, buttermilk, and lassi are appropriate diets during diarrhoea, which help to aid digestion and lower the occurrence of diarrhoea.
Read more about the health benefits and recipes of buttermilk to prepare a homemade treatment.
Inflammation rises in the stomach due to the constant urge to pass the stool and to ease that. In addition, water retention should be increased in the body, which will also calm and soothe the uneasiness of the stomach.
When your stomach is sensitive during diarrhoea, it is a must to look after what diet you are taking to prevent that.
ToneOp is here to tell you which type of food can cause discomfort during this time.
As digestion is weak during diarrhoea, consuming fried and oily foods is not advisable. Fried-oily foods can aggravate the condition, as they go to the colon and break down into fatty acids, causing colon fluid secretion and triggering diarrhoea.
Spicy foods irritate digestion and can weaken the digestive system severely. Less spicy and bland food is advisable, as it is easy to digest and does not cause discomfort while passing.
High-fibre foods keep the digestive system working to flush the bowels. However, fibre-rich foods are good for health but should be appropriately consumed in moderate quantities.
During diarrhoea, the bacteria in the gut are already sensitive. Eating sugary foods and artificial sweeteners may aggravate the situation, so it is advisable to avoid high-sugar foods.
If you have severe symptoms, visit your doctor rather than doing any home-based treatment to prevent the severity.
If you have a baby suffering from diarrhoea, kindly do not try any home-based remedies on them. Instead, strictly consult your doctor to treat the diarrhoea because the baby's digestive system is very gentle. Treating it with homemade remedies may aggravate the situation.
You can give them electrolyte fluid exclusively for babies to keep them hydrated. Other than that, try to connect with your doctor for rapid treatment.
