Symptoms, remedies, treatments and care for Irritable Bowel Syndrome
Diarrhea is a condition in which feces are discharged from the bowels frequently and in a liquid form. It is the result of increased secretion of fluid into the intestine, reduced absorption of fluid from the intestine or rapid passage of stool through the intestine.
Diarrhea is commonly caused by bacteria, viruses, or parasites. Inflammatory bowel diseases (IBD) including Crohn's disease and ulcerative colitis can cause chronic diarrhea.
