I have some more questions about my diarrhoea…
What is the cause of my watery stools?
Diarrhoea is the result of food and liquid not being absorbed by your body and therefore passing through your intestines, resulting in a watery bowel movement.
How long will my diarrhea last for?
In acute cases, it will last for about two days. However, if the symptoms persist for more than that, it would be best to see your doctor.
Why do I always have diarrhoea?
If you are constantly suffering from diarrhea, whether it be intermittent or constant, we suggest that you consult with your doctor as you may be experiencing chronic diarrhoea which can be caused by a number of different things. One of the most common is IBS, irritable bowel syndrome.
However, diarrhoea is usually caused by a bowel infection that could be from a bacteria, parasite or virus infection picked up while travelling abroad or elsewhere. Consult with your doctor should you be concerned.
