Is Pediatric Electrolyte same as Pedialyte?
Besides, what is Pediatric Electrolyte?
Pediatric Electrolyte Oral Solution This product is used to replace fluids and minerals (such as sodium, potassium) lost due to diarrhea and vomiting. It helps prevent or treat the loss of too much body water (dehydration).
One may also ask, can adults drink pediatric electrolyte? The amount of solution you should take depends on your weight. Toddlers, children, and adults should generally take 100 mL to 150 mL per kilogram of body weight (45 mL to 70 mL per pound) each day. If you are also vomiting, start with small amounts of solution and increase this amount when vomiting subsides.
Regarding this, what is the difference between Pedialyte and electrolytes?
Electrolytes help you hydrate quickly by telling your kidneys not to pee so much. Since it's a sports drink, Gatorade also has carbohydrates, sugars, and added calories added in to help with endurance. Pedialyte has lots of sodium and potassium, but less calories and less sugar than Gatorade.
What can I use instead of Pedialyte?
Alternative to Pedialyte - Integrative Pediatrics and Medicine.
- Six (6) teaspoons of Sugar.
- Half (1/2) teaspoon of Salt.
- One (1) liter of clean drinking or boiled water and then cooled – (5 cupfuls, each cup about 200 ml.)
