Principle of diet:


high calorie diet


A high calorie, low protein, moderate fats, restricted sodium and potassium diet is prescribed.

  • When vomitings and diarrhoea are seen avoid oral intake of food instead intravenous glucose should be administrated.
  • Fruits and vegetables should be leached and given as they contain potassium.
