Diet, stress and gastrointestinal flu are among the most common causes of acute diarrhea. Diarrhea is also one of the most common travel illnesses on vacation.
Nourishment: Diet can cause diarrhea. In particular, food allergies, food intolerances or a sensitive digestive system can trigger acute diarrhea. The way you eat, such as eating too much fat, too quickly, too spicy or too late, can also lead to digestive problems such as diarrhea.
Stress: In exceptional, stressful situations, whether at work or in our private lives, the rhythm of our digestive system can change negatively. It is not uncommon for stress to lead to digestive disorders such as acute diarrhoea.
Stomach flu: Stomach flu is often caused by viruses. One of the most common symptoms is diarrhea.
Traveler's diarrhea:Depending on the local water and hygiene standards in the travel destination, there may be an increased risk of contracting diarrhea. Not even the most careful vacationers are always spared from diarrhea.
Menstruation: Up to 30% of all women struggle with acute diarrhea during their period. The connection between intestinal problems and menstruation has not yet been fully clarified. However, there is an assumption that the diarrhea is caused by hormonal changes.
With diarrhea, the functional states of the intestine change. On the one hand, increased intestinal movement ensures faster transport of the food in the intestine. This leaves the body less time to absorb liquids and nutrients from it. On the other hand, the body releases more fluid and electrolytes into the intestine (secretion). The result is a stool that is too liquid and too frequent.
Imodium acute duo primarily reduces the increased intestinal movement in acute diarrhea. Due to the slower transport speed of the food in the intestine, your body has more time to absorb water and electrolytes. As a result, the stool frequency is reduced. The stool consistency becomes firmer again. At the same time, the immune system can start fighting the pathogens that may have caused the acute diarrhea, among other things.
