Prevention

Avatar Dr. Kyle Bickel Jun 21, 2019

In terms of prevention measures for diarrhea, what are the number one things you can do is to make sure that your immune system is as strong as possible? People that don’t sleep enough, people that aren’t good with their nutrition, people that are constantly getting other type of viral infections or at high risk of getting diarrhea. Any type of chronic infections that patients can get, can lead to IBS and can lead to chronic diarrhea. So if you’re in an area where you know that it’s going to be endemic for certain types of travelers, diarrhea or infections, you just have to make sure to practice good hand washing and good sanitary practices. And make sure that if someone is sick or if someone around you has a chronic diarrhea from an infectious etiology, just to be more aware of that and practice better sanitary guidelines.
