Overview

Loose motions or Diarrhea is the condition of having three or more loose or liquid bowel movements in a day. It is a common cause of death in developing countries and the second most common reason for infant deaths worldwide. The loss of fluids during loose motion can cause dehydration and electrolyte disturbances. Signs of dehydration often begin with loss of the normal stretchiness of the skin and changes in personality. This can progress to decreased urination, loss of skin color, a fast heart rate, and a decrease in responsiveness as it becomes more severe.

Signs and Symptoms

The symptoms of loose motions include:

  • Water, liquid stools
  • Abdominal cramps
  • Fever
  • Dehydration

Causes of Loose motions

Viral infections are the most common cause of diarrhea or loose motions.

  • Bacterial infections
  • Intestinal disorders or diseases
  • Reaction to certain medications
  • Intolerance to foods
  • Parasites

Treatment

If the person suffering from loose motions is severely dehydrated, the doctor may start an IV line to replace body fluids.

Antibiotics may be given to treat severe diarrhea caused by bacteria. The health care professional may recommend using over-the-counter antidiarrheal medications.
