What is Numark Rehydration Treatment?

Why do I have diarrhoea?
Diarrhoea usually happens when you have a stomach bug, or gastroenteritis. This can be caused by a virus, such as norovirus, or food poisoning. When you have diarrhoea, it means that your bowel can’t absorb fluid or is secreting extra fluid, which is then passed from the body. Some of the other causes of diarrhoea include:
- Inflammatory bowel disease
- Coeliac disease
- Diverticular disease
- Drinking too much alcohol
- Food allergies or intolerances
- Some medications
How will Numark Rehydration Sachets keep me from becoming dehydrated?

These sachets are a type of treatment called oral rehydration solution (ORS), and they’re ideal for those who have lost fluids and are at risk of dehydration when they’re suffering with diarrhoea or vomiting.
