Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Frequent recurring nausea, vomiting and diarrhea generally indicate digestive tract disorders. One of the most common causes of these complaints is:
The cause can be due to viruses, bacteria, or parasites. This disease can be caused by an unhygienic diet, for example not washing hands, not covering food, snacking carelessly, or consuming raw food.
Intolerance or malabsorption
The inability of the digestive tract to over-digest and absorb some types of food. This condition can occur due to irritable bowel syndrome, stress, deficiency of certain enzymes, and so on.
Inflammation of the intestine
The intestines can become inflamed, especially due to disorders of the immune system. This condition can appear in 2 types of diseases, namely ulcerative colitis or Crohn's disease. The exact cause of this disease is unknown. However, many experts suspect that this condition is influenced by an unhealthy diet, stress, genetics, and various other factors.
Other infections, for example HIV, hepatitis
Malignancy (eg stomach cancer, colon cancer), and so on
Not all of the conditions above are dangerous. If your complaint arises due to an infection, for example, this condition can generally be cured by administering the right drugs to eradicate the microorganisms that cause the infection. However, if the cause is different, the handling will of course be different.
Therefore, if your complaints have been recurring since you were a child, you should not carelessly take anti-diarrheal drugs without seeing your doctor right away. Check with your doctor first so that you will examine in depth what is the cause of your complaint. Usually, not only interviews and physical examinations, the doctor will also direct you to undergo further tests, for example, endoscopy, ultrasound, and so on. If necessary, you may also be referred to a specialist in internal medicine.
At this time, you should pay more attention to your diet so that your complaints don't come back again. You can apply the following steps in your daily life:
Wash hands more diligently, use an antiseptic soap
Avoid consuming food that is not processed hygienically
Reduce the habit of consuming spicy, coconut milk, too acidic, or containing too much gas
Reduce the habit of consuming instant and preservative foods
Eat small, frequent meals
Avoid taking drugs carelessly without the advice of a doctor (including anti-diarrhea drugs)
Do not smoke
Hope this helps ..
