What Is Diarrhea?

Diarrhea is a condition that affects almost everyone at some point in life. It refers to bowel movements that are runny, loose, and watery, and often occurring frequently in a short time period.

What Causes Diarrhea?

Diarrhea occurs when the colon does not absorb liquids from the foods and fluids you have ingested quickly enough, leaving a watery stool in the colon tract. Dehydration, loss of appetite, nausea, and stomach cramping are symptoms of diarrhea. The most common causes of diarrhea include:

  • Viruses
  • Eating foods that upset the digestive system
  • Food allergies
  • Lactose intolerance
  • Diabetes
  • Ingesting too much alcohol or coffee
