A randomized, double blind control study of the treatment of acute diarrhea with aluminium hydroxide and cholestyramine in comparison with a control group demonstrated the effectiveness of cholestyramine in shortening the hospital stay, and the diarrhea course was better than that of aluminium hydroxide. However, aluminium hydroxide was superior to intravenous fluid plus early feeding.
