Meaning of Diarrhea
Diarrhea, also spelled diarrhoea, is the condition of having at least three loose or liquid bowel movements each day. It often lasts for a few days and can result in dehydration due to fluid loss. Signs of dehydration often begin with loss of the normal stretchiness of the skin and changes in personality. This can progress to decreased urination, loss of skin color, a fast heart rate, and a decrease in responsiveness as it becomes more severe. Loose but non watery stools in babies who are breastfed, however, may be normal. - See link


Diarrhea in Spanish is Diarrea
La diarrea del griego antiguo διάρροια (diárrhoia), y este de διά (dia) ‘a través’ y ῥέω (rheo) ‘corriente’ o ‘flujo’— es una alteración de las heces caracterizada por un aumento del volumen, la fluidez y la frecuencia de las deposiciones, en comparación con las condiciones fisiológicas normales, lo cual conlleva una baja absorción de líquidos y nutrientes, y puede estar acompañada de dolor abdominal, fiebre, náuseas, vómito, debilidad o pérdida del apetito. - See link
