Diarrhea (Patient Counselling Guide)
16 Dec 2016
Diarrhea is a condition characterized by the passing of abnormally loose stools at very short intervals. Its causes vary and may include a change in the diet, food intolerance (e.g. lactose), inflammatory bowel disorder, certain drugs (antibiotics, magnesium-containing antacids), a bacterial infection (food poisoning), a viral infection (rotavirus in children) or a pathogenic protozoan (amoebiasis). People with diarrhea, especially the very young and the elderly, are at risk of becoming rapidly dehydrated.
