Solution

Dehydration sets in during diarrhoea because of excessive loss of water from the body tissues via discharge of semisolid or fluid faeces and vomiting. Dehydration may lead to the death of infants. Hence, the doctor tries to prevent dehydration from occurring during diarrhoea by advising liquid diet to the patient to compensate for the loss of water along with antibiotic treatment.
