JA: Thank you so much for your time. Finally, is there anything else in your medical history you think the Doctor should know?
Customer: no

Thanks for using just answer

If you stopped the lansoprzole and still getting loose stools, then its unlikely to be due to lansoprazole though it can also cause loose stools.

You also have diverticulitis and IBS which causes loose stools

Also bacterial infection of the gut, called helicobacter pylori can present with loose stools.

You need to have stool tests for bacterial infection, as well as faecal calprotectin might show if you have flare-up of diverticulitis or colitis.
