Diarrhea Is The Leading Cause Of Death For Children

John Gray

Diarrhea describes bowel movements (stools) that are loose and watery. It is very common and usually not serious. Some people have diarrhea often as part of irritable bowel syndrome or other chronic diseases of the large intestine.

The most common cause of diarrhea is a virus that infects the gut. The infection usually lasts for two days and is sometimes called the "stomach flu." Diarrhea may also be caused by infection by bacteria (food poisoning),eating foods that upset the digestive system, allergies to certain foods, medications, radiation therapy, Crohn's disease, ulcerative colitis, diabetes and even over exercise. Diarrhea may also follow constipation, especially for people who have irritable bowel syndrome.
