Can overreating cause diarrhea?

Avatar Dr. Kyle Bickel Jun 21, 2019

If you eat or consume too much sugars, carbohydrates, or if you drink excessively, all of these things can cause what’s called an osmotic diarrhea, which can lead to loose stools for a period of time while you’re doing that over eating.
