GLUCOST R is a new and improved Oral Rehydration Salt (ORS) which follows the WHO and UNICEF recommended formulation for the prevention or treatment of diarrheal dehydration and other electrolyte imbalances due to different causes from any affected age group.
WHO and UNICEF recommended reduced osmolarity ORS is an 'improved' ORS formulation that is not only safe and effective as the standard ORS in preventing and treating diarrheal dehydration but it also reduces vomiting and stool output.
GLUCOST R is more effective, thru the early administration of GLUCOST R and because of the reduced osmolarity of GLUCOST R (245 mOsm/L), stool output and vomiting will be reduced significantly which may prevent possible adverse effects of hypertonicity on net fluid absorption.
