Many patients on chemotherapy experience nausea and vomiting, some more severely than others.  Vomiting and diarrhoea can also be caused by highly contagious viral infections.

We’ve included Hydralyte in our Kit. Hydralyte is scientifically formulated to contain the correct balance of glucose and electrolytes for rapid rehydration. The formulation is based on the World Health Organisation criteria for effective rehydration. Water alone, or sugary drinks are not as effective as Hydralyte, as they do not replace electrolytes which are lost during bouts of vomiting and diarrhoea help.

Consult your medical team if diarrhoea that continues over 24 hours, particularly if watery or persistent vomiting that lasts more than 24 hours or nausea lasting more than 48 hours despite taking anti nausea medication.
