If your child is still having diarrhea, i recommend you talk with your doctor about how to help the intestines recover from the recent infection. ...Read more

Comprehensive stool analysis yielded few WBC and moderate Yeast . Yeast normal range is supposed to be rare to few. I have inconsistent stool and localized occasional pain in RUQ. Please advice?
Meaningless test: "Comprehensive stool analysis" is not often recommended by knowledgeable experts. Probably you requested this from an online testing service. It's pointless.
