87 year old with digestive probs
Prius47 posted:
My mother is 87 yrs. old, and has been experiencing diarrhea @ 1-2 hrs. after she eats, along with stomach bloating. Sometimes the diarrhea is almost explosive. This has been happening over the last 3-4 months. She's not a big eater, so it's not the amount of food she takes in. I believe it's the combination of foods. I'd hate to limit the kinds of food she likes, but if I have to, I will. Any thoughts???

Keep a food diary for a week or so to see if you find a pattern of a particular food triggering this.

Pay particular attention to milk and milk based foods as these are often a culprit in what you describe.
