Diarrhoea is a common problem, which can affect anyone at any age. It is defined as an increase in the volume, wateriness or frequency of stools, when compared to the patient's usual bowel movements. It is important to remember that stool frequency and consistency are variable from one person to another and what may be considered a problem for one individual may be normal for another. This article addresses the approach to the management of diarrhoea in adults only. <BR>Diarrhoea can either be acute or chronic.
