OK Jessie but are you having loose stools now?
Customer: replied 3 years ago.

yes

OK--how long has this been going on and just loose or actually watery?
Customer: replied 3 years ago.

loose, as no shape, a few weeks off and on

OK Jessie. This isn't from the diet change but it still may not be anything too serious. You need to let your doctor know about this and get a stool sample to see if you might have an infectious diarrhea with E coli or salmonella. It could be just irritable bowel syndrome but you do need to get it checked out
