The prognosis of Diarrhea may include the duration of Diarrhea, chances of complications of Diarrhea, probable outcomes, prospects for recovery, recovery period for Diarrhea, survival rates, death rates, and other outcome possibilities in the overall prognosis of Diarrhea. Naturally, such forecast issues are by their nature unpredictable.

Prognosis for Diarrhea: Diarrhea can be dangerous in newborns and infants. In small children, severe diarrhea lasting just a day or two can lead to dehydration. Because a child can die from dehydration within a few days, the main treatment for diarrhea in children is rehydration. 1
