SALTADOL electrolytes drinks infants, toddlers, school children
Saltadol ® Glucose Electrolyte Mixture
For diet management of dehydration in diarrheal diseases. Suitable for infants, toddlers, school children and adults.
Diarrhea can have many causes. For example, it can occur as a drug side effect when using antibiotics or anti-inflammatory drugs, caused by viruses (including norovirus, rotavirus) and bacteria (including Escherichia coli, salmonella) or food intolerances (including gluten, lactose). Traveller's diarrhea is one of the most common travel illnesses when traveling. It is estimated that 70% of international travelers suffer from diarrhea during or after their trip. Diarrhea is not only very uncomfortable, it can also lead to dehydration (dehydration) of the body, as a lot of fluids and electrolytes are lost in a short time. There is a particular risk of dehydration in children and the elderly with a weakened immune system. In the case of acute diarrhea, experts therefore recommend a liquid-electrolyte balance as the first measure and then only a diarrhea medication to stop the diarrhea. For a fluid-electrolyte balance, solutions should be used that correspond to the recommendations of the World Health Organization (WHO) in order to compensate for water and salt losses as quickly as possible and to prevent dehydration.
Saltadol ® is a glucose-electrolyte mixture in powder form and is dissolved and drunk to quickly balance the electrolyte and water balance in the water. The body needs the electrolytes that are present in the Saltadol ® glucose-electrolyte mixture in order to be able to absorb the water from the intestines and to counteract dehydration. The proportions of the components of Saltadol ® are precisely matched, have been adjusted and correspond in reduced osmolarity to the WHO formulation for the supply of lost electrolytes. Saltadol ®Glucose-electrolyte mixture is the only product in Germany that corresponds to the recommended composition of the World Health Organization 1: 1. It can be used with the whole family without hesitation and therefore belongs in every home and first-aid kit!
