[/fright]UNICEF and the WHO first came up with a cheap oral rehydration solution (ORS) to combat diarrhea in the third world in 1969. In 2006 they came up with a new formula with less sugar.

According to Wikipedia the new formula contains salt, trisodium citrate, potassium chloride and anhydrous glucose but a similar rehydration solution can be prepared using 6 level teaspoons (25.2 grams) of sugar and 0.5 teaspoon (2.1 grams) of salt in 1 liter (4 1/4 cups) of water.

Marvin Medow is currently testing the effectiveness of ORS in ME/CFS/POTS. Preliminary results suggest it may be more effective than saline IV's.
