Q.

Gastro

Hi,
sorry to post again...

My paed said that my daughter has gastro - this is not day 6 of a runny tummy - we are getting fluids in so I don't have an issue with dehydration... but it just doesn't seem to be clearing up at all... I can also see that she has lost weight (I'm thinking over 1kg) in the last few days... How much longer can I expect this to continue?
Thanks

Her diarrhoea should have stopped by now, so please see your paediatrican again. She may have a problem called temporary lactose intolerance, so speak to your paediatrican about this when you see him.
