Sugar Used For Diarrhea

Thomas Short describes how Warm Milk and Sugar were prevoiusly used to treat Diarrhea

“Take two or three lumps of treble refined sugar, the white of a new-laid egg; beat them well up together into a fine froth; mix it with a gill-glass full of the Tilbury-water, and half a gill of fresh cows-milk made warm. Drink this twice or thrice a day”
