Dr Dhanasekhar Kesavelu
Abstract: Probiotics have a role as adjuvant therapy in the management of childhood diarrhea along with oral zinc and oral rehydration salts (WHO). Increasing scientific evidence in the past decade has shown the role of probiotics in reducing the duration of diarrhea by a minimum of 24 hours. There are multiple probiotics that exist in the market as food supplements and some as pharmaceuticals, but strong scientific evidence and recommendations exist only for a few.
