    Exciting News for WebMD Members!

    We've been busy behind the scenes building new message boards for you. You'll have new and easier ways to find messages, connect with others, and share your stories.

    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    Keep an eye here and on your email inbox, we'll be back in touch soon to give you all the information you need!

    Yours in health,
    WebMD Message Boards Management

    Loose stool
    elfried posted:
    My husband has type 1 and has loose stool like once a day for the past year or so. He has a desk job but for 6 weeks he had a temp job that kept him mostly on his feet and doing light physical work all day long and during those weeks he had firmer stool and went like every other day. Now he is back to desk job and loose stools are back. Any one know anything about this?
    And how do you talk to an expert on this site?
    davedsel57 responded:
    The assigned health experts rarely reply to posts. No one, not even an assigned health expert, can diagnose or give medical advice in any WebMD community. Therefore, your husband must contact his doctor for answers.
