Drinking and diarrhea


Diarrhea can be caused ethanol ingestion.Consumption of alcohol affects the body's capability to absorb water - after a heavy drinking session. The alcohol is absorbed in the intestines -the intestinal cells absorb it, the toxicity causes these cells to lose their ability to absorb water. This leads to an outpouring of fluid from the intestinal lining. Suggest to cut down.

Alcohol Poisoning


HI I cannot rule out Alcohol Poisoning from your description. You may need to re-hydrate, take your vitamins and eat some meals with good nutrition. If the diarrhea is persisting you can try the BRAT Diet: Bananas, RIce or Rice Water, Applesauce or peeled apples and unbuttered toast. You should be feeling better soon.
