Why do I get diarrhoea?

There are a range of causes that can tip the balance of our digestive systems. For most people it’s occasional, a tummy bug or travel related. Some people suffer more frequently. Living in a busy, modern world can have an effect on you physically and emotionally. Stress and anxiety can contribute to bouts of diarrhoea – as can changes to your diet. It affects each individual differently, so it makes sense to treat it early.

Why treat diarrhoea?

Episodes of diarrhoea can be both uncomfortable on your body and disruptive to your day-to-day routine. Treat diarrhoea early to feel better, and help reduce the loss of fluids and salts that can leave you feeling weak and tired.

There are three key things you can do:

  • Stay hydrated by drinking fluid
  • Eat balanced meals regularly
  • Use an IMODIUM® product
Treat with IMODIUM® products

The watery or loose stools you experience when suffering with diarrhoea are a result of an overactive digestive system. When something upsets the natural balance of your intestines, your system can go into overdrive. With less time to absorb salts and fluids the result can be loose or watery stools. IMODIUM® works by helping settle the intestines back into their natural rhythm, and can relieve diarrhoea to help you get back to feeling like yourself.

Restoring water and salts

Whilst IMODIUM® works to help relieve your diarrhoea symptoms effectively, you should also keep drinking plenty of fluids to maintain good hydration.
