Travellers Diarrhoea: Knowing These Facts Will Help You

About


It is a condition in which the digestive tract gets affected leading to cramps in the abdomen. It causes loose stools. The disease is not chronic and is caused by the ingestion of poisonous or polluted food. The intestines get infected by this food which leads to loose bowels and nausea among other problems. As travellers are more prone to this disease caused by ingesting polluted food it is called as travellers diarrhoea.


Fortunately, the Travellers diarrhoea is that it may subside without the administration of any kinds of medicines.


- 30 % to 70% international travellers are believed to suffer from this condition .
