Hello ruchigupta,
Gall bladder contains bile which is helpful in digesting cholesterol.
Once gall bladder is removed from the body, bile goes directly to the intestine, this may cause diarrhea in around 10% of people.
Diarrhea may also occur if the patient take a lot of sweet foods, oily and greasy foods, on the whole they should restrict high fat containing food stuffs. So ask your mother to avoid such foods.
As of drugs your mother is taking Triglycomet and Glyza are antidiabetic drug and Telmisartan is antihypersensitive drug. Redotil is anti-diarrheal drug.
These drugs doesnt cause interaction and cause loose stools.
Hope I explained your query

Dear Ruchi,

if she underwent the gall bladder surgery recently and sugars are bad, then that might be the reason for her weakness. Redotril might have been prescribed for the diarrhea she's having. But needless to say, it is still not helping her. So you need to rule out infection of her Gastrointestinal tract and take appropriate antibiotics for the same. Check for her sugars, fasting and 2 hours post meals and see how the trend is. If they seem to be on an average more than 200 mg/dl, then better think of a short term insulin therapy for her to come out of the bad sugar patterns and also this will help control the infection, if any. If she is on T. Triglycomet since a long time, then unlikely that she has loose stools because of it. All the very best.
