Many: Ibs, inflamatory bowel disease, infections, side effects of meds especially some meds like antibiotics and some otc supplements. Just to name a few. You need labs , stool sample and probably a colonoscopy.

A new parasite Cyclospora from eating infected raspberries, lettuce can cause loose watery diarrhea. Agree with above with consideration to Cyclosporiasis as well.
