How can I manage my diarrhoea?
So your doctor has reassured you that you don’t have any serious disease of the bowel and confirmed that your diarrhoea is most likely caused by irritable bowel Syndrome. What can you do about it?
Watch your diet
While your bowels are very active, avoid dairy foods and fruits and eat bland foods such as steamed white fish or chicken, rice, potatoes and cut down on fruits, dairy, fatty meals or any foods that are likely to stimulate the bowels. Click here for more information.
Relax and chill out. Give yourself time.
Remember if you are anxious and busy, your bowel is likely to be active too. Click here for more information
