Hi,
you may call it dentitional diarrhoa. Dehydration is the serious problem in such condition. So, management of dehydration is basic precaution. In medicinal side use homoeopathic medicine - Podophylum 30 - 2 drops 3 hourly.
Pediatrician Dr. Diana Divakar's  Response
Hi dear,
well,regarding your child, i would advise that as long as she is drinking and retaining water, the quantity of loose stools is less, her urine output is normal, she is active and alert and there is no blood or sticky mucous in the stools, there is nothing to worry. Generally children have viral diarrhoea more commonly at this age.. Hence, antibiotics can be deferred. Lactobacillus can be taken preferrably in the form of curds rather than any medication. Diet should mainly contain rice based products, boiled apple, banana, moong dal, curds,etc. Her hydration should be of priority. U can also add a drop of lime in the ORS to add flavour and check if she likes it.....

For the past two days I have had orangish-clay colored stools. I have had them occasionally before. I had my gallbladder removed in November of 2012. Just to give you an example... I ate lunch and about 30 minutes later I had diarrhea with the same color stools as mentioned and this was about my fourth round of diarrhea today alone. Please help!!

Hi. I have a cramping, distended upper abdomen and I noticed that my sternum is very painful to touch and feels larger as I ve never noticed the shape of it before. I ve had 4 days of diarrhoea and some nausea but no sickness. Any possible causes? Is it something I should bother a GP with?

My parents brought me to the emergency room because I was having chest pains, shortness of breath, I was getting tired very easily (after taken a couple steps), and having severe body sensitivity to touch. They made me go through the triage center and when they saw my heart rate was reaching up to 146 they admitted me. While in the ER my heart rate was maximum 186 and the doctors there could not find anything through the EKG, X-rays, and all the other tests they had administrered to help them find something to explain my rapid heart rate and tiredness. Well, I was admitted as an impatient the next day after going home and having diarrhea and vomiting all night. I stayed in the hospital a total of 3 1/2 days and they could not find anything wrong with me internally, from what they could see.

My general doctor who is also a cardiologist has already done a 2D echo-cardiogram and has put me on a holter monitor for 24 hours, hoping something would show up. the holter monitor showed that my heart rate goes up to 190 and he is so puzzled as to what it could be. He is thinking I have had this my whole life but only started noticing these symptoms now. He now wants to admit me in a hospital that specializes in cardio issues and is already consulting with anther doctor but they have not made a final decision yet as to what tests they want me to do and where they want to send me.

What could this be?

I always have a bowel movements first thing in the morning, usually within the first hour of waking up. Lately I have been getting nauseous just prior to going to the bathroom, feeling incredibly sick. I run to the bathroom and once I go, I feel fine and the nauseous feeling goes away. My body has also decided that it doesn t want to digest food very well. I am passing a lot of undigested vegetables and grain, including carrot, red peppers, black beans, beets, and whole quinoa. I get some light cramping and pains in my sides and lower abdomen, and my stool is changes consistency all the time from soft and loose, to very firm. But it is never watery or diarrhea. My doctor suspects IBS but has not done any testing yet. Are my symptoms characteristic of a more serious disease, like colon cancer or Chron s?
