Normal variation: Since your child is acting well, the stools that you observe could be from a change in diet or from an increase in water as you describe and especially if there was an increase in juice or sweetened beverages. If there is fever, cramping, abdominal pain, or blood in stools, further assessment would be recommended.

When I eat eggs or waffles or drink milk products I have loose stools and the feeling of having to go all the time?

More food diary: I would suggest you keep track of a more consistent, thorough food diary to see what other foods you are reacting to. Is there pattern of dairy? gluten products? You could also try a lactose free diet for two weeks to see if that helps the situation.

2yr old with cough, green loose stools and poor appetite x 2 days. Drinking OK. Virus? Wait it out or take him in?

If stable, wait: This presentation is almost always viral. So long as water intake is OK and your child doesn't become listless all should be well. I presume you know about the BRAT diet.

Hi I'm 40 and scared I've got panceatic cancer I've had loose stools on and off for about 6 weeks and now there yellow I also drink alcholo a lot?

Pancreatitis: The story of loose yellowish stools is sign of steatorrhea. Here there is no pancreatic juice function to dissolve and absorb fat that can be measured by radioactive triolein. Also here is obstruction of bile duct. Steatorrhera not common with pancreatic Ca. More ilkely pancreatitis from common duct stone. Need ERCPand bx of pancreas duct and CAT scan of abdomen.

My 7 year old has diarrhea now for 5 days and now there's blood in his diarrhea. He is drinks fluids and seems ok.

My 7 year old has diarrhea now for 5 days and now there's blood in his diarrhea. He is drinks fluids and seems ok.

Blood is not ok: Sounds like you should take your little guy in for an office visit. Could just be blood from his buttocks getting inflamed from wiping a lot, but if the blood is really in the poop, he probably should have some stool tests done. There are only a few diarrheal illnesses that tend to cause blood in the stool. Get him checked.

My son's 2. On meds for bronchiolitis & now he has diarrhea everytime he eats or drinks. What can I do? He is doing it with pedialyte.

My son's 2. On meds for bronchiolitis & now he has diarrhea everytime he eats or drinks. What can I do? He is doing it with pedialyte.

Contact your doc: Some antibiotics can trigger diarrhea and or the agent causing the infection could also. A discussion with your doc (who has the benefit of examining the kid recently) should help decide your next move. Kids taking only pedialyte can develop a green spinach like diarrhea that reflects lack of nutrition more than anything else.

Drinking energy drinks give me diarrhea, & a lot of people I know get diarrhea from it as well. What ingredient in energy drinks can give you diarrhea?

Drinking energy drinks give me diarrhea, & a lot of people I know get diarrhea from it as well. What ingredient in energy drinks can give you diarrhea?

Lots of stuff: Many ingredients in energy drinks can cause diarrhea; different people have different sensitivities, so it’s hard to say which one actually causes it in any individual. According to sports physicians I've talked to, the best energy drink is water. One team doctor told me that those big energy drink barrels you see on the sidelines at games are usually full of water, not the advertised product.

Hi my husband has been experiencing problems after consuming alcohol, he had two drinks last night, vomited three times and has diarrhea, what's wrong?

Hi my husband has been experiencing problems after consuming alcohol, he had two drinks last night, vomited three times and has diarrhea, what's wrong?

Previous problems?: With alcohol consumption? Two drinks is a small amount to be causing symptoms the next day, if it hasn't previously caused problems. Also, diarrhea is pretty unusual. Sounds like he possibly has something else going on, like a virus or food poisoning. Try just clear liquids as tolerated, consider getting a Concierge consult or seeing your GP or Walk In if not better after a few hours.

2yr son is vomiting only at night. Doesn't eat, hardly wet diapers but drinks fluids. Lots of diarrhea today. What could be wrong? When do I go to dr?

See below: Persistent vomiting that lasts more than 2 days should be evaluated by your doctor to rule out serious medical problems. If the vomiting is also followed by diarrhea, fever, abdominal pain or any other type of sharp or sudden pain, emergency care should be instituted. Possible causes: food, reflux, viral infection, headaches/migraines, parasites, cough associated with post nasal drip or asthma.

Two year old vomiting and yellow green diarrhea for six days every time eats or drinks. Should I take her back in?

Two year old vomiting and yellow green diarrhea for six days every time eats or drinks. Should I take her back in?

Dehydration: We worry about the little ones getting dehydrated if they go for too long with vomiting and diarrhea. Things that would make me more concerned: looking sluggish, pale, not urinating as much, not making tears or their mouth looks dry. Also if they're still having fevers after 6 days. But if one of my patients wasn't able to hold anything down after 6 days, i'd want to see them regardless.

Hasn't eaten more than 3-4 bites in 6 days. Constant fever no less than 100. Drinks bottles. No vomiting or diarrhea?

Hasn't eaten more than 3-4 bites in 6 days. Constant fever no less than 100. Drinks bottles. No vomiting or diarrhea?

Not much to offer: These symptoms are vague. I suppose she is taking enough bottles to remain hydrated, but that is not clear from your statement. I would have her evaluated. A better history and a physical exam could sort it out.
