What Causes Loose Motions In Children Despite Having Healthy Food?
Small bowel study is warranted.
I understand your query and concern.
The symptoms of your son are suggestive of digestive tract mucosal abnormality.
Since he is clinically asymptomatic as of now, you need not worry much.
I suggest you go for mucosal study through small bowel enteroscopy and fecal fat estimation.
These investigations can help to virtually rule out small bowel disease and guide further treatment.
Post your further queries,if any.
Seems you are scaring me for an irregularity of some sort - may even be of eating habits. Why don't you suggest some basic medication that may treat the issue?
Anti-diarrhoeal medications should not be prescribed without a known cause.
I am sorry, I do not have any intention to scare you. I am only being more aggressive towards the problem of your child as his symptoms are quite recurrent.
Loose motions should not be left alone as such especially if they are frequent in nature.
Children usually present with latent mucosal abnormalities which need to be sorted out carefully.
Over the counter drugs for his loose motions are not advisable until a specific cause has been documented, since they can mask the process and produce frequent side effects.
Of course, drugs like loperamide can occasionally be helpful to control this loose motions but should be taken only under strict medical prescription.
Hope you understand my concern towards your child.
