Dear ME
Protein should not be giving you diarrhoea - see if the vitamins contain Magnesium - that can cause a runny tummy or ask your doctor to send a sample to the lab, you may have a bacterial/other infection. I imagine that this is very inconvenient when you are training and hope you find the culprit soon.
