I'm new to this 4 year old son has chronic diahrea with no relief. He takes meds for Bartter's Syndrom which is a Kidney Disorder. Dr. says the meds don't cause the diahrea. Has anyone heard of Chronic Chloride Diahrea? Would be interested in any information any one has. Thank you

I can't say that I have heard of it, but I often wondered if the chlorine in our water supplies also kill the good bacteria. Here is why: I once had a plumber over, and he said I was to put this "friendly bacteria waste eliminator called Bio Clean down the drain. He said that the chlorine in our water system and that what we wash down our drains in the laundry can kill the friendly bacteria that would help to eat up the bad bacteria. Does that sound familiar? Therefore, I believe the chlorine in our water supply systems (which is mainly in the city systems-and I wonder about the flouride too) can affect our gastroentestinal tracts. Therefore I would recommend drinking filtered/spring bottled water and taking acidophylis. Just a thought. Maybe you could ask your child's doctor where this Chloride comes from, and how this is determined.
