LLM gives good to excellent results in refeeding of infants suffering from diarrhoea. Nine out of 17 cases were refed with LLM, where as the other 8 with Almiron or SGM as a control. Result of LLM in stopping diarrhoea was excellent in 5, good in 2, poor in 2 cases. Increase of body weight was excellent in 4 cases, good in none, poor in 5 cases. Results of Almiron or SGM in stopping diarrhoea was excellent in 1 case, good in one, poor in 6 cases. Increase of body weight was excellent in 1 case, good in none, poor in 7 cases. From these results it is recommended to give low lactose milk as refeeding on patients with infantile gastroenteritis.
