A member asked:

Is it advisable to take a probiotic if one has had diarrhea for more than a week?

A doctor has provided 1 answer

Either way: There is no objective evidence that "probiotics" treat any illness. However, taking these would not be harmful, other than the cost. Wish you good health! - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Drink enough water daily, so that your urine is mostly colorless. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form. Practice safe sex, if you have sex.
