Were you looking for information about Diarrhea? Diarrhia is a common misspelling of diarrhea.
Diarrhea is defined as watery stools that occur more than three times a day. People with this symptom often have frequent bowel movements and may pass more than a quart of watery stool a day. Most people get better on their own, but diarrhea can be serious for babies and older people if lost fluids are not replaced. Treatment for acute diarrhea typically involves replacing lost fluid to prevent dehydration, while chronic diarrhea can be treated with antibiotics or lifestyle and diet changes.
