Explosive diarrhea


Recommended Posts


I wondered if anyone else experiences explosive diarrhea at times?

I get this at times so I researched and found this article that I thought I'd share.

for me I think I get it if I eat a food I'm intolerant of. For me I'm lactose intolerant,

so it could have been caused by eating cheese.

Though I don't get it every time I eat cheese.  So I have to write down everything I eat so I can

figure out what is causing this symptoms.

It could also be from eating beans too early in the day..

Hope all in the group are well!

I used to experience explosive diarrhea from a variety of things, but not so much anymore. I'm lactose intolerant too, but I really don't have anything with dairy so that's not my cause. Too much alcohol is definitely a trigger for me, so I tend not to do that anymore.

Keeping a food diary is probably the best way to identify if it is any one food or combination. Using a low FODMAP diet is also helpful at identifying which foods in which quantities might also be the cause.

Thanks very much for your reply.

You are right. It is best to keep a food diary.

I am lactose intolerant as well but eating dairy doesn't cause that symptom.

I'll try being more meticulous about the food journal.

take good care!
