my husband has been suffering from bad diarrhoea on and off for a while now, maybe 1 month or more. i keep telling him to go to the doctor, but as there are periods inbetween where he is fine, he doesnt go. he has also lost his appetite and i'm starting to get worried. how serious could this possibly be?

Straw, I can’t tell you what it is, but I can tell you that it isn’t normal. The fact that he has lost his appetite also seems to suggest that it is caused by an underlying disorder and not just a “stomach bug”. The best would be for him to see his doctor because it might be something serious. Good luck.
