Our expert says:
Have you had stool sent to the lab for parasites? It could also be an allergy or outo immune reaction in the bowel. Try excluding milk, wheat and sugar for a week and then gradually introduce it back into your diet one by one to see if any one of these worsens the symptoms. One should also think of the rarer causes like diabetes, Addison's disease, over active thyroid; medications, particularly magnesium-containing products, antihypertensive and non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, theophyllines, antibiotics, anti-arrhythmics, and anti-cancer medication.
Food additives such as sorbitol and fructose can also cause diarrhoea.
