Thanks for query,
The reason of your loose motion seems to be an irritable bowel syndrome.
Your bowel gets irritated causes your peristalis frequently cause you to pass more watery stool.
What diagnosis was made in 2006 after colonoscopy?
You should consult a Gastroenterologist to confirm your diagnosis.
Mean time you may consume isabgol to make viscous stool.

Hi Parvathi,

Welcome back to healthcare magic Physician's desk!
The chronic diarrhea may be due to many causes.
It may be a spurious diarrhea if you have a thyroid problem.
Please get a thyroid profile.
It may be due to secretory lesions in the gut or due to colonization by the bacteria or parasites.
I would advise you to have a stool examination and a repeat lover Gastrointestinal endoscopy.
House hold therapies would not be effective.
You can try a ofloxacin and ornidazole combination twice a day for a week in supervision of your physician.

I think the advise would be helpful for you.

If you still have queries if any, please feel free to communicate back.
