Patient's Query

Hello doctor,

I am a 52 year old female. I am 5 feet 9 inches tall and weigh 154 pounds exactly. For the past five weeks, I have had uncontrollable watery diarrhea, no blood. Not much pain. I am type 2 diabetic. I am beginning to feel very weak and tired now. At night especially, I find I have been fecally incontinent on waking. I cannot visit my GP as the diarrhea is unrelenting and happens unexpectedly. Please help if you can. Many thanks.

Hello,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

Most of the times, diarrhea is due to a viral infection. Maintaining hydration is very important and you can take ORS (oral rehydration salts) or coconut water or clear soups. Also, check your blood sugar if you have a home glucose monitor. A visit to your physician is recommended as soon as possible. I hope this helps. Thank you and take care. Regards.

Same symptoms don't mean you have the same problem. Consult a doctor now!
