Diarrhea and other Gastrointestinal Disorders

 sometimes tourist diarrhoea or traveller’s dysentery, is a stomach and intestinal infection, and the most common illness affecting travellers. It is defined as three or more unformed stools passed by a traveller within a 24-hour period. It is commonly accompanied by abdominal cramps, nausea, and bloating. The diagnosis does not imply causative organism, but enter toxigenic Escherichia coli (ETEC) is the most common pathogen Bacteria are responsible for roughly 80% of cases; most of the rest are caused by viruses and protozoans. Although most travellers with TD recover within a few days with little or no treatment, symptoms can sometimes be severe enough to require medical intervention. In those who are immunocompromised or otherwise prone to serious infections, TD is a significant concern and occasionally even life-threatening.
