Causes And Treats Prolonged Diarrhea?
Good evening, my name is Jennifer, I am 17 years old and I often experience diarrhea (the phase is not completely liquid, there are still spices) every time I finish eating I immediately feel a painful sensation in the lower part of the stomach, then the pain will continue until I finish defecating, I I also like to feel the sensation of weakness before defecating, I used to have a bloody stool and then I checked at the health center, he said it was okay maybe because I like to eat spicy food and eventually it caused injuries to the stomach wall. Then after a few weeks the bleeding had stopped, but the diarrhea had continued for almost half a year now.
diarrhea is defined as loose stools that occur more than 3 times in 24 hours. Furthermore, diarrhea is classified into acute diarrhea and chronic diarrhea. Acute diarrhea occurs under 14 days with worse manifestations, while chronic diarrhea may appear mild, but persists for more than 2 weeks. In your case where diarrhea continues even up to half a year, it is important to do further evaluation, whether diarrhea continues to occur or has been interspersed with several solid bowel movements. In addition, it is also important to evaluate the type of food consumed, where spicy, coconut milk tends to cause digestive problems, especially for those with weak digestion. It is also important to pay attention to whether there are ingredients in foods that can cause diarrhea, for example for those who are lactose intolerant, dairy products can cause diarrhea. Certain food allergies can also manifest as diarrhea. Not to forget the most important thing is to pay attention to whether diarrhea occurs due to poor food hygiene.
Most people have paranoia about colon cancer, in bloody diarrhea. Colon cancer itself is more characterized by hard bowel movements like goat feces and accompanied by blood. Continuous diarrhea also raises suspicion of diseases that attack the immune system such as AIDS, or at least increases attention to psychological conditions related to diarrhea complaints. We recommend that you check with your doctor, where diarrhea doesn't stop. Here we attach an article about chronic diarrhea. May be useful.
