This is Dr. David
diarrhea can be caused by food allergies, like gluten allergies or sensitivies, or lactose allergy or sensitivity.
or IBS irritable bowel syndrome
or bowel infection like clostridium difficile infection which can be caused by antibiotic therapy.
that is good that gluten free helps.
that is good you had a colonoscopy 7 years ago
how old are you?
are you male or female?
do you have a GP doctor you can see who can do some testing for you to see why you are having more abdominal diarrhea issues?
have you tried to avoid milk and lactose and see if that helps?
