Diarrhea (दस्त) is the condition of having at least three loose, liquid, or watery bowel movements each day. It often lasts for a few days and can result in dehydration due to fluid loss. Signs of dehydration often begin with loss of the normal stretchiness of the skin and irritable behaviour. Loose but non-watery stools in babies who are exclusively breastfed, however, are normal. About 1.7 to 5 billion cases of diarrhea occur per year. In 2012, total deaths from diarrhea were the second most common cause of deaths in children younger than five. Having considered the subject problem of serious nature, Siddha Spirituality of Swami Hardas Life System considers that our every reader must avail the benefits from the in-depth information and instant free Siddha energy remedies.
Diarrhea Definition (दस्त की परिभाषा)
Diarrhea is defined by the World Health Organization as having three or more loose or liquid stools per day, or as having more stools than is normal for that person.
Diarrhea Types (दस्त के प्रकार)
Acute diarrhea is defined by the World Gastroenterology Organization as an abnormally frequent discharge of semisolid or fluid, lasting less than 14 days.
Secretory diarrhea (स्राव संबंधी दस्त)
Secretory diarrhea means that there is an increase in the active secretion, or there is an inhibition of absorption. There is little to no structural damage. In this type of diarrhea intestinal fluid secretion is isotonic with plasma even during fasting. It continues even when there is no oral food intake.
Osmotic diarrhea (ऑस्मोटिक दस्त)
Osmotic diarrhea occurs when too much water is drawn into the bowels. If a person drinks solutions with excessive sugar or excessive salt, these can draw water from the body into the bowel and cause osmotic diarrhea. Sugar alcohols such as sorbitol (often found in sugar-free foods) are difficult for the body to absorb and, in large amounts, may lead to osmotic diarrhea. In most of these cases, osmotic diarrhea stops when the offending agent (e.g. milk, sorbitol) is stopped.
Exudative diarrhea (अतिसार दस्त)
Exudative diarrhea occurs with the presence of blood and pus in the stool. This occurs with inflammatory bowel diseases, such as Crohn’s disease or ulcerative colitis, and other severe infections such as E. coli or other forms of food poisoning.
Inflammatory diarrhea (भड़काऊ दस्त)
Inflammatory diarrhea occurs when there is damage to the mucosal lining or brush border, which leads to a passive loss of protein-rich fluids and a decreased ability to absorb these lost fluids:
- Bacterial infections
- Viral infections
- Parasitic infections
- Autoimmune problems such as inflammatory bowel diseases
If there is blood visible in the stools, it is also known as dysentery. The blood is a trace of an invasion of bowel tissue. Dysentery is a symptom of, among others, Shigella, Entamoeba histolytica, and Salmonella.
Diarrhea Health effects (दस्त का स्वास्थ्य पर प्रभाव)
Evidence suggests that diarrheal disease has significant impacts on mental development and health. It has been shown that even when controlling for helminth infection and early breastfeeding, children who had experienced severe diarrhea had significantly lower scores on a series of tests of intelligence.
Diarrhea can cause:
- Electrolyte imbalances
- Renal impairment
- Defective immune system responses
When oral drugs are administered, the efficiency of the drug is to produce a therapeutic effect and the lack of this effect may be due to the medication traveling too quickly through the digestive system, limiting the time that it can be absorbed.
Diarrhea Causes (दस्त का कारण)
Acute diarrhea is most commonly due to viral gastroenteritis with rotavirus, which accounts for 40% of cases in children under five. In travelers, however, bacterial infections predominate. Various toxins such as mushroom poisoning and drugs can also cause acute diarrhea.
Chronic diarrhea can be part of the presentations of a number of chronic medical conditions affecting the intestine. Common causes include:
- Ulcerative colitis
- Crohn’s disease
- Microscopic colitis
- Celiac disease
- Irritable bowel syndrome
- Bile acid malabsorption
There are many causes of infectious diarrhea, which include viruses, bacteria, and parasites. Infectious diarrhea is frequently referred to as gastroenteritis. Norovirus is the most common cause of viral diarrhea in adults, but rotavirus is the most common cause in children under five years old.
Other infectious agents, such as parasites or bacterial toxins, may exacerbate symptoms. In the sanitary living conditions where there is ample food and a supply of clean water, an otherwise healthy person usually recovers from viral infections in a few days. However, for ill or malnourished individuals, diarrhea can lead to severe dehydration and can become life-threatening.
Poverty is a good indicator of the rate of infectious diarrhea in a population. This association does not stem from poverty itself, but rather from the conditions under which impoverished people live. The absence of certain resources compromises the ability of the poor to defend themselves against infectious diarrhea.
One of the most common causes of infectious diarrhea is the lack of clean water. Often, improper fecal disposal leads to contamination of groundwater. This can lead to widespread infection among a population, especially in the absence of water filtration or purification. Human feces contains a variety of potentially harmful human pathogens.
Proper nutrition is important for health and functioning, including the prevention of infectious diarrhea. It is especially important for young children who do not have a fully developed immune system.
Zinc deficiency, a condition often found in children in developing countries can, even in mild cases, have a significant impact on the development and proper functioning of the human immune system. Indeed, this relationship between zinc deficiency and reduced immune functioning corresponds with increased severity of infectious diarrhea.
Malabsorption is the inability to absorb food fully, mostly from disorders in the small bowel, but also due to maldigestion from diseases of the pancreas. The causes include:
- Enzyme deficiencies or mucosal abnormality, as in food allergy and food intolerance, e.g. celiac disease, lactose intolerance, and fructose malabsorption
- Pernicious anemia, or impaired bowel function due to the inability to absorb vitamin B12
- Loss of pancreatic secretions, which may be due to cystic fibrosis or pancreatitis
- Structural defects, like short bowel syndrome and radiation fibrosis, such as usually follows cancer treatment and other drugs, including agents used in chemotherapy
- Certain drugs, like orlistat, which inhibits the absorption of fat
Inflammatory bowel disease (सूजन आंत्र रोग)
The two overlapping types here are of unknown origin:
- Ulcerative colitis is marked by chronic bloody diarrhea
- Crohn’s disease typically affects fairly well demarcated segments of bowel in the colon and often affects the end of the small bowel
Irritable bowel syndrome (चिड़चिड़ा आंत्र सिंड्रोम)
Another possible cause of diarrhea is irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), which usually presents with abdominal discomfort relieved by defecation and unusual stool for at least 3 days a week over the previous 3 months.
Other diseases (अन्य रोग)
Diarrhea can be caused by other diseases and conditions, namely:
- Chronic ethanol ingestion
- Certain medications
- Bile acid malabsorption
- Ischemic bowel disease
- Microscopic colitis, a type of inflammatory bowel disease
- Bile salt malabsorption
- Hormone-secreting tumors
- Chronic mild diarrhea in infants and toddlers may occur with no obvious cause
- Environmental enteropathy
- Radiation enteropathy following treatment for pelvic and abdominal cancers
Diarrhea Treatment (दस्त का इलाज)
Some medications, such as the Penicillum can cause diarrhea. Over 700 medications are known to cause diarrhea. The classes of medications that are known to cause diarrhea include:
- Heartburn medications
- Anti-neoplastic drugs
- Many dietary supplements
Diarrhea Diagnostic approach (दस्त का नैदानिक दृष्टिकोण)
The approach of diagnosis in the following types of diarrhea may indicate further investigation:
- In infants
- Moderate or severe diarrhea in young children
- Associated with blood
- Continues for more than two days
- Associated non-cramping abdominal pain, fever, weight loss, etc
- In travelers
- Food handlers, because of the potential to infect others
- Institutions such as hospitals, childcare centers, or geriatric and convalescent homes
Chronic diarrhea (जीर्ण दस्त)
When diarrhea lasts for more than four weeks a number of further tests may be recommended including:
- Complete blood count and ferritin if anemia is present
- Thyroid-stimulating hormone
- Tissue transglutaminase for celiac disease
- Fecal calprotectin to exclude inflammatory bowel disease
- Stool tests for ova and parasites as well as for Clostridioides difficile
- A colonoscopy or fecal immunochemical testing for cancer, including biopsies to detect microscopic colitis
- Testing for bile acid diarrhea with SeHCAT, 7α-hydroxy-4-cholesten-3-one or fecal bile acids depending on availability
- Hydrogen breath test looking for lactose intolerance
- Further tests if immunodeficiency, pelvic radiation disease or small intestinal bacterial overgrowth suspected
Diarrhea Prevention (दस्त का निवारण)
Numerous studies have shown that improvements in drinking water and sanitation (WASH) lead to decreased risks of diarrhea. Such improvements might include for example use of water filters, provision of high-quality piped water and sewer connections.
Hand washing (हाथ धोना)
Basic sanitation techniques can have a profound effect on the transmission of diarrheal disease.
Hand washing in developing countries, however, is compromised by poverty as acknowledged by the CDC: Handwashing is integral to disease prevention in all parts of the world.
Clean Water (स्वच्छ जल)
Given that water contamination is a major means of transmitting diarrheal disease, efforts to provide clean water supply and improved sanitation have the potential to dramatically cut the rate of disease incidence.
Immunization against the pathogens that cause diarrheal disease is a viable prevention strategy, however, it does require targeting certain pathogens for vaccination. In the case of Rotavirus, which was responsible for around 6% of diarrheal episodes and 20% of diarrheal disease deaths in the children of developing countries, use of a Rotavirus vaccine in trials in 1985 yielded a slight (2–3%) decrease in total diarrheal disease incidence, while reducing overall mortality by 6–10%.
Similarly, a Cholera vaccine showed a strong reduction in morbidity and mortality, though the overall impact of vaccination was minimal as Cholera is not one of the major causative pathogens of diarrheal disease. Since this time, more effective vaccines have been developed that have the potential to save many thousands of lives in developing nations, while reducing the overall cost of treatment, and the costs to society.
A rotavirus vaccine decreases the rates of diarrhea in a population. New vaccines against rotavirus, Shigella, Enterotoxigenic Escherichia coli (ETEC), and cholera are under development, as well as other causes of infectious diarrhea.
Zinc supplementation proved successful showing a significant decrease in the incidence of diarrheal disease compared to a control group. The majority of the literature suggests that vitamin A supplementation is advantageous in reducing disease incidence.
One study in Brazil found that non-breastfed infants were 14 times more likely to die from diarrhea than exclusively breastfed infants. Exclusive breastfeeding is currently recommended for the first six months of an infant’s life by the WHO, with continued breastfeeding until at least two years of age.
Diarrhea Management (अतिसार प्रबंधन)
The treatment of diarrhea is replacing lost fluid and salts. This is usually by mouth – oral rehydration therapy – or, in severe cases, intravenously. Diet restrictions such as the BRAT diet are no longer recommended.
Research does not support the limiting of milk to children as doing so has no effect on the duration of diarrhea. To the contrary, WHO recommends that children with diarrhea continue to eat as sufficient nutrients are usually still absorbed to support continued growth and weight gain and that continuing to eat also speeds up the recovery of normal intestinal functioning.
Fluids (तरल पदार्थ)
To prevent dehydration, Oral Rehydration Solution (ORS) can be used. Standard home solutions such as salted rice water, salted yogurt drinks, vegetable and chicken soups with salt can be given.
Home solutions include following, can have from half a teaspoon to full teaspoon of salt (from one-and-a-half to three grams) added per liter, such as:
- Cereal cooked with water
- Unsalted soup
- Green coconut water
- Weak tea (unsweetened)
- Unsweetened fresh fruit juices
There are commercial solutions such as Pedialyte, and relief agencies such as UNICEF widely distribute packets of salts and sugar. WHO recommends that if a child vomits, to wait five or ten minutes and then start to give the solution again more slowly.
Drinks especially high in simple sugars, such as soft drinks and fruit juices, are not recommended in children under 5 years of age as they may increase dehydration. A too rich solution in the gut draws water from the rest of the body, just as if the person were to drink seawater.
The WHO recommends a child with diarrhea continue to be fed. Continued feeding speeds the recovery of normal intestinal function.
The WHO states “Food should never be withheld and the child’s usual foods should not be diluted. Breastfeeding should always be continued.” In young children who are not breastfed and live in the developed world, a lactose-free diet may be useful to speed recovery.
Diarrhea Medications (दस्त की दवाएं)
While antibiotics are beneficial in certain types of acute diarrhea, they are usually not used except in specific situations.
In resource-poor countries, treatment with antibiotics may be beneficial. However, some bacteria are developing antibiotic resistance, particularly Shigella. Antibiotics can also cause diarrhea, and antibiotic-associated diarrhea is the most common adverse effect of treatment with general antibiotics.
Diosmectite, a natural aluminomagnesium silicate clay, is effective in alleviating symptoms of acute diarrhea in children, and also has some effects in chronic functional diarrhea, radiation-induced diarrhea, and chemotherapy-induced diarrhea.
Alternative therapies (वैकल्पिक उपचार)
Zinc supplementation may benefit children over six months old with diarrhea in areas with high rates of malnourishment or zinc deficiency. This supports the World Health Organization guidelines for zinc, but not in the very young.
Diarrhea Facts (दस्त के तथ्य)
About 1.7 to 5 billion cases of diarrhea occur per year. It is most common in developing countries, where young children get diarrhea on average three times a year.
Total deaths from diarrhea are estimated at 1.26 million in 2013—down from 2.58 million in 1990. In 2012, it was the second most common cause of deaths in children younger than five (0.76 million or 11%).
Frequent episodes of diarrhea are also a common cause of malnutrition and the most common cause in those younger than five years of age. Other long term problems that can result include stunted growth and poor intellectual development.
