Diarrhoea Prevention Strategies

While there is IMODIUM® to treat diarrhoea, it’s better to prevent it altogether, if you can.

There are several things you can do – in terms of your diet, lifestyle and wellbeing – to help avoid diarrhoea in the first place.

Know your triggers

Your triggers might be certain foods, drinks or eating habits, or they might be stress, anxiety or nervousness. Keep an eye on your diet (write a food diary if you’re still trying to identify trigger foods) and try to keep stress at bay by doing regular exercise and making time to relax.

Keep your digestive system healthy

Exercise can be good for your digestion, so it’s good to know that there’s something simple you can do to help avoid diarrhoea. Exercise is a great stress buster too, which is good news if stress and tension are trigger symptoms for you.
