Effects of Acute Diarrhea on Absorption of Macronutrients During Disease and After Recovery
Nutritional consequences of diarrhea are thought to be due to several factors: (a) decreased intake of food resulting from loss of appetite or withholding of food as practiced in communities as a measure to control diarrhea, (b) loss of major nutrients as well as vitamins and minerals in the feces because of rapid transit or malabsorption, and (c) increased catabolism in response to infection.
