Understanding Dehydration

What is Dehydration?

Dehydration is defined as excessive loss of body fluid and electrolytes due to diarrhea with or without vomiting. During such illness, the body is losing water and vital body fluids more quickly than can be replaced.

When the condition becomes severe, dehydration can be life-threatening. With its electrolyte solution formulated to quickly replenish and rehydrate, Leolyte can save the day and help treat your child’s troubled tummy.

Identifying the Symptoms of Dehydration

During episodes of diarrhea with or without vomiting, your child loses excessive fluids and electrolytes from the body, which can rapidly dehydrate the body. Leolyte can help replenish and rehydrate your child, helping to reduce the risk of dehydration.
