Child occasionally having loose stools, abdominal pains, eats lots of sugary food. Possible reason?

Hi. My 5 year old daughter occasionally has very loose stool . She has been like this for the past 4 weeks. Sometimes she briefly complains of abdominal pain . Other times she has normal bowel movement with normal formed stool. Sometimes while defecating, she starts having normal stool which turns into loose stool towards the end. She eats a lot of sugary food. Kindly advise! Regards

Hi, many thanks for the query!
You need to do- Stool (Culture & Microscopy), uSG (Abdo-Pelvis), CBC.
Occasional loose stools at this age group is quite possible.
Lots of sugary food is not related.
Abdominal pain is due to excessive spasms of the bowels.
Take Antispasmodics, Antibiotics with your doctor's opinion.
Parasitic infestations are common in this age group, so if it is positive for that, take appropriate anti-helminthics (albendazole/mebendazole) with
your doctor's opinion.
Drink plenty of water (preferably ORS).
Wish you a good health.
Take care.
