Diarrhoea is usually caused by an infection of the intestinal wall, viruses or bacteria. It is a condition in which the sufferer has watery stools that occur more frequently than usual. Other symptoms of diarrhoea include vomiting, nausea and, in some cases, fever. Diarrhoea usually clears up quickly.
If you are suffering from diarrhoea it is important to remain hydrated. Because the body's fluid supply is severely depleted, a major risk in diarrhoea is dehydration. This risk is greater for young children and the elderly. This is why anyone with diarrhoea should drink plenty of liquids. It is not necessary to adjust your diet.
