In brief: Glucose needed
In diarrheal illnesses glucose (ie sugar) is needed to help increase the absorption of sodium and this water from the intestine.

In brief: Rehydration salts
Most of these come with sugar.
If you do not prefer sugar, then follow the formula below: 1 quart water/ 250ml of orange juice, 3/4 teaspoon of salt, 3 tablespoon of lemon juice.
