Thank you for the input.
Diarrhea can occur from a gastrointestinal infection.
Here the urine output would be low from dehydration.
Fluid loss, low intake can cause it.
I would suggest to have an examination by his doctor again.
Stool test, blood work would help to find the type of infection.
In case of bacterial infection, antibiotic will be needed.

Pedialyte is good.

You can continue it.
I hope this information will be helpful.

If you have any query, please feel free to ask.

I feel better already! Thank you.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
