I have had diareha for more than 3 days now


Q: I have had diareha for more than 3 days now. I am gassy, and need to go more frequant. I have been vegetarian for more than 4 months now and I never had this issue before, is there something I can take to help, or should return to a my previous diet?


A:   Hi.
Thanks for your query.

It says you have diarrhea for more than 3 days in spite you have changed your diet long ago, that is 34 months ago, hence does not look to be related.
I would advise you the following:
Get the stool tested along with routine blood tests.
If infection is present take a 5-day course of an antibiotic active for intestinal infection, probiotic and you will be fine.
You may please continue the diet, whichever suits you.

Hope this helps you
