Diarrhoea can have several causes including infectious bacteria, food poisoning, food allergy or intolerance, IBS or yeast overgrowth. In diarrhoea treatment it is essential to find the cause as diarrhoea is purely a symptom of an underlying health problem.
Diarrhoea may also be associated with more serious conditions like Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis. If it is a chronic problem it is more likely to be associated with food intolerance, gluten sensitivity or parasites. Diarrhoea treatment needs to focus on finding the cause which we are experts at doing.
Certain foods can aggravate the problem, for example, concentrated fruit juice, lactose and coffee.
As stated above diarrhoea is generally a symptom of another underlying condition and is very common with people with food sensitivities. At the London Clinic of Nutrition we look at the underlying cause of frequent bowel movements and often recommend specialist testing to uncover the underlying cause.
