Brief Answer: Answer given below Detailed Answer: Hi, You are having loose stools for quite sometime now. The medications you are taking now may not provide relief. You need to undergo more tests to find the cause of chronic diarrhea. The tests to be done are - 1. Complete blood count 2. Blood glucose 3. Thyroid function test 4. Tests for celiac disease and other malabsorption syndrome 5. Upper GI endoscopy with duodenal biopsy 6. Colonoscopy Consult a gastroenterologist in your area for these tests. Let me know if I can assist you further. Regards, Dr.Ratnakar Kini
