Customer Question
On Saturday @a.m.I woe...

On Saturday @a.m.I woe p with extreme diarrhea. Took some anti diarrhea meds. Sunday felt so weak and didn't eat much. Monday stayed up and ate some chicken soup. Was passing gas and the smell was horrible. Taking Alieve. This morning had a small BM stools were still pencil size and bright red blood in toilet! Feel very weak using walker to get around. Could it be that I am taking too many anti diarrhea pills? I am 94 years old and have reasonable good health for my age.

Doctor's Assistant: What medications do you take daily? Are you allergic to any medications?

I take Amalodipine daily and also Glocosocill and a daily vitamin. I am allergic to codeine.

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

There is nothing that I can think of, I have been type 2 diabetic for several years now, keeping it under control with diet and exercise, blood sugar runs around 6 and daily around 120.

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.

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.
