Loose stools and abdominal cramps lasting for a month can be due to various causes including parasitic infections, malabsorption syndromes (lactose intolerance), indigestion, dysentery, etc.
A proper medical history and a complete physical examination will be very important to know the actual cause of symptoms.
Treatment with probiotic supplements, digestive enzyme replacement therapies and âproper diet changes ( low fat, low carbohydrate, with increased fibre content as well as rich in fruits âand vegetables) will be very helpful to improve the digestion as well as to reduce all the symptoms.
You might consult with a gastroenterologist who can be able to examine you and advice proper âmedications as needed.â
