Diarrhea in babies may be reduced with zinc
supplements. I’m Erin White and this is a dailyRx Minute. Diarrhea is one of the most
common illnesses to occur in babies and young children. A recent study found that two weeks
of zinc supplements reduced the amount of diarrhea experienced by a group of Indian
babies. The reduced diarrhea effect lasted at least 5 months. Discuss any supplements
with your pediatrician. For dailyRx TV, I’m Erin White.
