Chronic Diarrhea: Prevention Menu

Prevention of Chronic Diarrhea

Prevention of chronic diarrhea depends on the cause:

  • For the inflammatory diarrheal illnesses IBS and Crohn disease: This is limited to suppression of symptoms
  • For infectious causes: Prevention is based on barriers to exposure, such as avoiding contaminated foods and liquids, especially during travel
  • For the irritable bowel and malabsorption syndromes: Such as celiac disease and gluten intolerance, avoidance of the irritants and other diet alterations are necessary
  • For drug-related diarrhea: Prevention hinges on finding equally effective substitutes that do not alter the gut microbiome or stimulate hypermotility
  • For diarrhea related to food allergies: Allergy testing for specific food groups can be helpful in preventing diarrhea
