Expert:  Dr Uzair replied 11 months ago.
Alright, any history of diet change or recent travel?
Customer: replied 11 months ago.
my diet has been pretty consistant for many years, I have spent 4 weeks in Tenerife in Dec 2015, but did not eat out, as I do all my own cooking
Expert:  Dr Uzair replied 11 months ago.
Okay, do you experience any abdominal cramps? Nausea? Stomach upsets?
Customer: replied 11 months ago.
no other symptoms whatsoever
Expert:  Dr Uzair replied 11 months ago.
Okay - This might be either a parasitic infestation or an upper GI condition like gall bladder dysfunction or fatty liver, however, this is just speculation and three of the differentials. This kind of subtle but continuous diarrhea can also be due to malabsorption, but in that case weight loss is one of the symptoms.I would suggest that you have your stool routine examination (RE) done along with an Upper abdominal ultrasound to rule the above out. Please do discuss this with your GP.Let me know if you have further questions.
