In brief: Additional questions

How long is this been going on?Did it start after eating somewhere? Have you taken anything? Is the stool watery or muddy or just unformed? pain? Any medical problems? Loose stool can be related to infection,keep hydrated with water/ gaterade( diet if diabetic).
Use probiotics.Avoid dairy.Eat white rice, bananas, applesauce. If diarrhea is bloody, > 8-9/day ,fever,more pain see a doctor

In brief: Probably okay

The loose stools is probably a function of fiber intake.
Without blood or pain or cramping the likelihood of a significant disorder is unlikely. However, if you have not had a recent colonoscopy I would suggest that as an evaluation.
