  • There are various causes of diarrhea. Some are relatively common, such as overeating / drinking, food poisoning, and irritable bowel syndrome, while others are due to special illnesses such as ulcerative colitis and Crohn's disease.
    In acute diarrhea, it is more important to identify the cause than to stop the diarrhea.
    Food poisoning, or infectious diarrhea caused by pathogenic microorganisms, is a natural defense reaction that attempts to expel harmful substances from the body. In such cases, it is not enough to stop diarrhea unnecessarily.
    Severe diarrhea leads to dehydration. Be especially careful with small children and the elderly. It is better to rehydrate with an intravenous drip, so get a medical examination early.
