If diarrhoea is persistent…

  • Ask GP to do a stool sample to check for infections
  • Blood test
  • GP to rule out Crohn’s disease, ulcerative colitis, and coeliac disease (blood test and biopsy to confirm)
  • Possible referral to gastroenterology for investigation
  • GP may need to prescribe Loperamide (common brand name Immodium)
