Dealing with Diarrhea

Dealing with Diarrhea

Diarrhea is defined by the World Health Organization (WHO) as the passage of three or more loose/liquid stools a day (or more liquid stool than is normal for said individual). Fully formed stool, even when occurring frequently, does not constitute diarrhea. Diarrhea can last for anywhere from two to three days to several weeks, in which case you should contact your healthcare professional. This illness is usually caused by an infection in the intestinal tract, ignited by a mix of bacterial, viral and parasitic organisms.
