In brief: Diarrhea

Diet plays a big part - cut down caffeine and lactose and fats; apple pectin is a very safe over the counter option which will bind up the extra fluid - you can start with two twice daily and go up as needed; also bannanas white rice and toast will help as well chronic diarrhea needs a medical evaluation though so dont ignore it too long - it takes too much toilet paper!
