Diarrhea From Overeating

Loose stools is a symptom in which a person's stool (poop) does not hold its shape after it goes into the toilet. 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
I ate a pretty large meal for dinner and about 4 hours later, I had diarrhea. Can overeating cause this? Should I be concerned?
This could be a one time only issue or it may be related to gastrointestinal issues.
If it persists, even for one day after taking better control of your meals please see your doctor ASAP. If the clinic visit is delayed please go to the Emergency room Read more
I took claritin and had diarrhea 8 & 11 hours later due to overeating, does that mean claritin got flushed out and wasted, too?
Overeating: One should not get diarrhea and vomiting from overeating. That is very unusual and implies very bad food. One could possibly throw up once or twice if you ate like a glutton, but diarrhea is not related. This sounds more like food poisoning. However, the fastest food poisoning does not come on for at least 12 hours. Most likely a gastroenteritis was brewing and coincided with a big meal. Read more
Symptoms: nausea, stomachache, diarrhea, extreme sweating, faintness, lasted about 30 min. Food poisoning? Or could overeating have been the cause?
Maybe, but maybe not: A 30 minute bout of diarrhea, along with nausea, tummy ache, and sweating, usually means the person ate something that reacted in a way with his or her body, to make the body want to rapidly expel (poop out) everything. Sometimes this is due to food poisoning (toxins in food), rapid over-eating, certain food oils/ingredients that make bowels move, taking medications with laxative effects, etc... Read more
What's the cause?: "plugging up" diarrhea will not cure an infection, fix an inflammatory process, improve an ischemic gut, or correct a functional issue. Medical evaluation is recommended appropriate to the duration of your symptoms, associations (bleeding, weight loss, pain, vomiting), as well as your other medical co-morbidities. Call your doctor please and get checked. Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
BRAT for acute runs:
Start with bananas, rice (white), applesauce (has pectin), tea and toast (white)- easily absorbed. Fluids, not just water. Advance and add protein: miso soup goes down easy; add baked, boiled chicken, fish, potato, plain pasta; advance as tolerated. Add in cooked veggies (save salad and citrus for later). Chronic? See md
probiotics, eg. S boulardii (florastor) can be helpful. Not better see doc. Read more
Gentle on GI track: If you have diarrhea drink water to hydrate yourself. You can also have clear soups / broths, unsweetened juices or oral rehydration solutions. You want to be gentle with your diet so that your GI track can recover. Stay away from dairy, leafy vegetables & most fruits initially. Caffeine & alcohol should be avoided as well as any dark carbonated beverages. Although it may seem bland to you, stay >. Read more
"Cure" for diarrhea: First define the problem (do you have soft or frequent stool?), circumstances under which diarrhea developed (malabsorption, pancreatic maldigestion, food intolerances, stressful times, exposure to ill individuals, food poisoning, ischemic gut, inflammatory colitis, etc.), severity (stool volume, dehydration, blood, night-time awakening, weight loss), ; duration. The "cure" depends on diagnosis. Read more
More data needed: "Atypical" does not mean anything with "diarrhea". Sloppy wording. Is it infection or inflammatory? Stool cultures and C Difficile tests rule out the former. Colonoscopy helps with the latter. In addition there are malabsorption syndromes or certain cancers that can cause diarrhea - gastroenterologist can help get to the bottom of this.

Liver Problems: The color of stool can help guide your doctor to determine the cause of the problem. White stool is often a result of a liver disease such as viral hepatitis which causes the bilirubin in your blood level to rise. As a result there can be less of it in the stool and the stool then becomes "discolored" or white, gray, or pale. Note that eating all white foods can cause this as well.
