What are the types of diarrhea and its symptoms?

Diarrhea can be acute or chronic. Acute diarrhea is more common than persistent or chronic diarrhea.2

Acute diarrhea
Acute diarrhea is fairly common and can last for hours or days. You might experience diarrhea as a result of a viral or bacterial infection including food poisoning or traveller’s diarrhea.

The usual clinical features of acute infective diarrhea are frequent stools, sometimes with blood and mucous, pain during passing stools, abdominal pain, vomiting, and fever.

Severe diarrhea leads to dehydration, which manifests itself as apprehension, cold clammy skin, rapid pulse, deep and rapid respiration, inelastic skin, sunken eyeballs, dry tongue, scanty urine, and low blood pressure. Untreated acute diarrhea can be fatal.

Non-infectious diarrhea can be caused by drugs such as antibiotics, certain anti-depressants, antacids, bronchodilators, chemotherapeutic agents, laxatives, non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, etc., and spurious diarrhea, which follows chronic constipation especially in older people and in association with psychological stress.

Chronic diarrhea or persistent diarrhea
Chronic diarrhea lasts for weeks or months and may be either persistent or recurrent. The causes of chronic diarrhea is usually the result of an intestinal disease or disorder, such as celiac disease or Crohn’s disease.

Chronic diarrhea is either persistent or recurrent with intervening periods of normalcy or constipation. Stool volume may be large or small and may be watery, loose, bulky, or frothy.

Untreated chronic diarrhea can lead to malabsorption syndrome and malnutrition. It is always important to understand the underlying cause of diarrhea so that the right treatment can be planned.

Having an episode of diarrhea is never a pleasant experience. You need to take steps to help relieve diarrhea.

Diaronex®’s active ingredient, the bark extract of the tree herb Holarrhena Antidysentrica (Pubescens), works to effectively relieve diarrhea. Its medicinal ingredient is 100% natural and herbal, is dairy free, gluten free and allergen free.

Here are some other things you can do if you contract diarrhea:

  • It’s important to stay hydrated when suffering from diarrhea as bouts of this bowel movement can dehydrate you. For mild cases of diarrhea, diluted fruit juices, sports drinks, and water can be used to prevent dehydration.
  • Avoid caffeine and lactose containing dairy products since they can exasperate diarrhea.
  • If there is no nausea and vomiting, solid foods should be continued. Foods that usually are well tolerated during a diarrheal bout include rice, cereal, bananas, potatoes and lactose-free products.
  • Oral rehydration solutions can be used for moderately severe diarrhea that is accompanied by dehydration in older children and adults.
