What is Diarrhea?

Diarrhea is when a patient experiences frequent and loose watery bowel movements. It is a short-lived condition that lasts for 2-3 days. However, its prolonged persistence implies underlying medical conditions such as bacterial or viral infection, food allergies, or medication reactions. Patients also experience fever, nausea, vomiting, dry mouth, weakness, high heart rate, low blood pressure, and low energy levels following diarrhea.

Types of Diarrhea

According to World Health Organization, diarrhea is classified into three types as follows:

  • Acute diarrhea is characterized by frequent watery bowel movements lasting several hours or days. It also occurs in response to diseases like cholera.

  • Chronic diarrhea/persistent diarrhea is when a patient experiences extremely loose motion lasting for 14 days or longer.

  • Dysentery is also a form of acute diarrhea. It occurs due to a stomach infection causing frequent bowel movements with bloody or mucus discharge.

Causes of Diarrhea

Multiple causes can lead to diarrhea, including:

  • Bacterial or viral infection in the stomach or intestine

  • Digestion issues

  • Food allergy

  • Contaminated food or water

  • Medicinal reaction or hormonal treatment

  • Inflammatory Bowel Syndrome
