The treatment for diarrhea usually requires replacing lost fluids. This simply means you need to drink more water or electrolyte replacement beverages, such as sports drinks.

In more serious cases, you may get fluids through intravenous therapy. If a bacterial infection is the cause of your diarrhea, your doctor may prescribe antibiotics.

Your doctor will decide your treatment based on:

the severity of diarrhea and related condition
the frequency of diarrhea and related condition
the degree of your dehydration status
your health
your medical history
your age
your ability to tolerate different procedures or medications
expectations for improvement of your condition
