Diarrhea prolonged
Hi there,

For the past few weeks I've had mild to bad Diarrhea - I realize somethings up - as it should have cleared up in a matter of days - I will go see the doc - but shes only back next week - could you give me a run through of all the possible causes - just to put my mind at rest - also - what kind of foods should I be avoiding?

Many thanks

Niccui, the best would be to avoid fatty foods and sweets. You can try Immodium® and check your stools for works/blood/mucous. As long as you don’t dehydrate you should be OK. Good luck.
