Product description

Dioralyte relief is recommended for the replacement of essential body water and salts in the treatment of acute diarrhoea.

During diarrhoea the body loses water and salts and Dioralyte relief replaces these whilst at the same time helping watery stools return to normal more rapidly. Early use is important to avoid dehydration, especially in the young and elderly.
