Can The Flu Cause Diarrhea

Instead of remaining a shaped piece of poop, the poop spreads out in the toilet bowl water. Very loose stool is called diarrhea. Loose stool can be caused by infections, certain foods or drinks, ...Read more
After a week of the flu, I'm not better and have developed a New symptom: diarrhea. What can I do?
Question the flu dx: IF you really HAD the flu, it isn't causing your diarrhea now. As long as your stools aren't bloody, you don't have a fever and your abdominal pain is minor after an episode of diarrhea, just keep orally hydrated and eat smart. Avoid caffeine, milk and fatty/fried/greasy foods. And eat bananas, steamed rice, apple sauce, lean protein and toast [a little jelly is okay, but no butter]. ...Read more

Had a 24 hour flu bug w/ diarrhea. Diarrhea went away for a day & I had normal stool. The day after the diarrhea returned. Is this normal for the flu?
Unlikely: Hi, usually the immunity the body generates from the bug that caused the diarrhea is what leads 2 recovery from the infection. So unless your immunity took a hit in 1 day or you got superinfected with another bug the diarrhoea does not recur. In most cases though after a bout of diarrhea pts develop transient lactose intolerance-which causes diarrhea. Avoid milk; dairy ;monitor. See pcp if no change. ...Read more
Bland and simple: There is no special answer here except keep it bland and simple. Usually you don't want anything more than this anyway. Avoid fatty foods that are heavy on the stomach. The main thing is to hydrate readily with sports drink and listen to your body - it has a way of telling you what to eat and what to avoid. Your appetite will return to normal as the illness passes. ...Read more

Flu symptoms: The diarrhea is likely a by product of your viral illness. I would recommend placing yourself on a clear liquid diet - no diary or caffeinated beverages and no alcohol. Small quantities frequently - as your stool starts to form up you can gradually increase your diet. The last items to add back - diary and highly seasoned foods. Good luck ...Read more

Hello, I recently had a case of the flu with headaches, diarrhea, coughing and body aches. They are gone except the cough and I just coughed up blood?
Hemoptysis: Coughing up blood is abnormal and should be evaluated by your physician. It may be from irritation or inflammation of the windpipe as a result of your recent respiratory tract infection, but it could also be caused by an ongoing bacterial bronchitis or pneumonia.

My wife has the flu and not sure what to do my wife has been throwing up and had diarrhea for over 8 hours now. I just got her some pedialyte but nothing has helped. I tried sprite, ginger ale, and she wanted tea and that did not help. She felt better
In a situation such as the one you described dehydration is the main concern. The body can handle losing fluids without replacing them up to a certain point. The signs of dehydration that warrant a mediical evaluation are;
decreased urine output
increased heart rate
increased respiratory rate
if these are present the affected person should be evaluated in an urgent care or emergency room where the patient will receive IV fluids and be monitored.
I am confident your wife has improved by now.
Take care. ...Read more
