Treatment

Avatar Dr. Kyle Bickel Jun 21, 2019

Diarrhea should be treated if there is any side of chronicity or if there’s any specific diagnosis that gives you a reason to treat. What I mean by that is if the patient has a specific infection that shows up in their stool, if the patient has been around anyone that has a specific infection and you have a high suspicion that they have that infection. If the patient is having significant symptomatology and the workup shows that there’s a specific medication that you can treat, all of these patients could be treated. It depends on a case-by-case basis. And the treatment also can vary depending on the diagnosis that you make.
