Diarrhea associated with antibiotic many test results suggest that probiotics may help prevent or reduce antibiotic-related diarrhea. One study evaluated 180 people, who received either a placebo or 1,000 mg of saccharomyces daily along with their antibiotic treatment and found that the treated group developed diarrhea significantly less often. A similar study of 193 people also He found benefit. Other forms of diarrhea evidence preliminary suggests that probiotics may be helpful for reducing diarrheas and other gastrointestinal side effects caused by treatment of cancer (radiation or chemotherapy). Small studies that S. boulardii could be useful in the treatment of chronic diarrhea in people with HIV, hospitalized patients who have to be fed by tubes and people with Crohn’s disease. Disease of the inflamed intestines (Ulcerative Colitis and Crohn’s disease) the suffering of the Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis fall into the family of diseases known as inflamed bowel disease.

The results suggest that probiotic treatment might be as effective as low-dose mesalazine for controlling symptoms and maintaining remission. Is It also noted evidence of benefit in other tests. Another study found that S. boulardii is useful for diarrhea in Crohn’s disease. Probiotics may be helpful for people with ulcerative colitis who have removed part or the entire colon.
