Product Info

Dioralyte™ is a fast and effective treatment for dehydration caused by diarrhoea. The dissolvable powder contains a balanced blend of electrolytes (mineral salts) and glucose (sugars) to promote rehydration. Suitable for adults and children.

How To Use

Prepare the solution immediately before taking. If treating an infant, the prepared solution can be stored for up to 24 hours in the refrigerator and used throughout the day.
Empty the contents of one sachet into a glass.
Add 200ml of water and stir to dissolve. The solution will be a clear, colourless liquid. Fresh water is suitable for adults and children over 1 year. for children aged 3 months to 1 year, use freshly boiled and cooled water.
Do not use more or less than 200ml as this will make the solution too weak or too strong and will upset the body's electrolyte balance.
Dose:
Adults
One or two sachets after each loose stool.
Children
One sachet after each loose stool.
Infants 1-2 years:
The doctor will calculate the correct dose for your baby depending on their weight. This is usually one and a half times the total feed volume in 24 hours.
Infants < 12 months:
Should only be used under the supervision of a doctor.
