The causes of acute diarrhea can be many. Most commonly, acute diarrhea is caused by diet, stress, and gastrointestinal flu. Traveller's diarrhea is one of the most common illnesses on vacation or when traveling.

Nutrition:Diarrhea can be caused by diet. In particular, food allergies, food intolerances or a sensitive digestive system can trigger acute diarrhea. Furthermore, the type of food, such as food that is too fatty, too late, too spicy or too fast, can lead to digestive problems.

Stress: Stress - be it in professional or private everyday life - can have a negative effect on the rhythm of the digestive system. It is not uncommon for stressful exceptional situations to lead to acute diarrhea.

Gastrointestinal flu: The symptoms of gastrointestinal flu, which are often caused by viruses, often include acute diarrhea.

Traveller's diarrhea:Depending on the local hygiene and water standards in the travel destination, there is an increased risk of developing traveler's diarrhea. It is therefore important to be well prepared. Imodium acute hard capsules are also suitable for the first-aid kit.

Menstruation: Up to 30% of all women experience acute diarrhea during their period. The connection between intestinal complaints and the period could not yet be fully explained. However, there is a presumption that hormonal changes trigger the diarrhea.

What happens to our digestive system in the event of acute diarrhea?
Diarrhea leads to changes in the functional state of the intestine. The food in the intestine is transported faster through increased intestinal movement. This makes it harder for our body to absorb fluids and nutrients. In addition, increased quantities of fluids and electrolytes are released in the intestine (secretion). This consequently leads to stool that is too frequent and too fluid.

The use of IMODIUM akut primarily reduces the increased bowel movement associated with diarrhea. The food in the intestine is transported more slowly. This leaves the body more time to absorb electrolytes and water. At the same time, the immune system can start fighting the pathogens that can trigger acute diarrhea, among other things.
