Has she eaten any different foods? Traveled? These are all questions her doctor will want to know the answers to help figure out what's wrong. ...Read more

Diarrhea that has little solid chunks in it but also flecks, almost like coffee grounds - Almost. But normal light brown in color. Reason for concern?

Diarrhea: What you describe would be consistent with an infectious diarrhea. This would be diagnosed in more detail by culturing the stool to determine the specific bacteria or other agent causing this. So it could be that the antibiotic you are on is incorrect.

Coffee does that.: One of the side effects of caffeine intake is increased bowel motility. If your intestines are moving the food you eat too quickly through your large bowel, the large bowel does not have enough time to absorb water from your stools, so it leaves the body as diarrhea. The quickest fix would be to reduce your caffeine intake, and eat more fiber in the form of fruits and vegetables. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Not really: If you get diarrhea after drinking coffee, your stomach may be sensitive to it. Any weight you lose with diarrhea is likely from fluid loss -- and can easily return once the stools stop. For healthy weight loss, you need to eat whole foods (no junk) and also exercise. Realize also that the composition of your body is more important than the number on the scale -- muscle is more firm than fat. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
