Are you still there i am deaf and cant talk on the phone

Dear *****ient, because of the symptoms that you mention, this type of diarrhea is caused by hyper-secretory diarrhea. This type of diarrhea is caused by viral contamination due to the ingestion of contaminated food or water. You should not be alarmed by the following treatment that I am going to indicate, it should improve in 24 hours, but if it does not improve you should go to the emergency room.
You must start with a restorer of the bacterial flora for this you must take FLorestar capsules every 12 hours for 5 days. In addition, you must drink plenty of liquid preferably water or Pedialyte, avoid drinking juices or drinks with high sugar content as it worsens diarrhea.
You will also take HIdrasec capsules every 12 hours for 3 days to help absorb the water.
all of these medications are over-the-counter
You have to avoid eating foods with a lot of fat and coloring, I suggest creams with just a little salt, or grilled foods.

I take a lot of midication im a diabetic i have fibromyalgia and intestinal problems like IBS with constipation and gerd

Yes I saw that and what the other expert told you

But did you need more information about this?

Ask Your Own Health Question
Customer reply replied 25 days ago
I just dont think its contamination i was wondering if there was anything else it could be

Well I wouldn't call it contamination from water or food but most likely it's a viral gastroenteritis and you don't have to ingest contaminated food or water to get that

Usually that runs its course in a week or so and I suggest oral probiotics and a tablespoon of apple cider vinegar in a glass of water twice a day

The other possibility would be your IBS but with diarrhea rather than constipation this time

Lastly it could be from your diabetic medication

But for now it isn't serious and there's no need for the ER

Please let me know if you need any more information

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.

John and StefanieTucson, AZ

I have been dealing with an extremely serious health crisis for over three years, and one your physicians asked me more questions, gave me more answers and encouragement than a dozen different doctors who have been treating me!!
