High sugar worse than high sodium in oral rehydration solutions

High sugar worse than high sodium in oral rehydration solutions

Acta Paediatrica Scandinavica 72(2): 161-166

The literature on oral sugar-electrolyte mixtures for treatment of acute diarrhoea is reviewed. Trials have shown that the solution proposed by WHO for developing countries containing sodium 90 mmol/litre and glucose 111 mmol/litre is safe for short term oral rehydration. When used in that manner there is no risk of development of hypernatraemia. The surplus base of the solution is not essential and other anions, such as acetate, may be substitute for bicarbonate.
