It all started in 2008 when my 3-year-old daughter was admitted with dehydration, secondary to a virus-related diarrhea and vomiting; commonly referred to as stomach bug! My wife and I are both medical doctors and well aware that not all diarrhea in pediatric age needs hospitalization, leave alone iv-re-hydration or medication. When she started passing loose, frequent and unusual stools, we kept her well hydrated (to the extent that we could) but also added probiotics to help replenish gut flora and possibly alter and mitigate the effects of the illness. After three days, the situation got worse. She was not improving, dehydration had become more severe and eventually, we called the pediatrician on a Saturday morning. The pediatrician advised that we admit her for IV (Intravenous) re-hydration and observation.
