There are many reasons why people get diarrhoea, from travellers' diarrhoea and stomach bugs to IBS. Each one is different but they can all disrupt your life.
Despite what many people think, experts agree that there’s no advantage to letting diarrhoea run its course. That’s because your body loses essential fluids and salts and doesn’t absorb all the nutrients you need from the food you eat. Instead it’s best to treat early and help get your body back to its normal rhythm.
