Came back from bangladesh...

...So, went to bangladesh and came back about 3 weeks ago. The trip was cool and all but I've had a few bowel problems since.
I have had diarrhea on and off since I came and my stomach hasn't settled down. I've lost a bit of weight and the whole thing has made me tired with a general feeling that I have a lack of energy.
At first I thought maybe its just a temporary 'culture' or 'body' shock thing , but must admit its lasted a bit too long.
I've booked a doctors appointment but wanted some advice on how best to deal with it in the mean time? also is there anyone who know what i might have?

It could be many things -- from a virus to parisites to an unbalanced of friendly bacteria.

Right now try to eat yogurt that contains additional cultures and take a probiotic supplement that will help re-balance the good friendly bacteria.

I think a Doctor is needed for other testing.

I agree with Harry. Look for a Probiotic at your local health food store. Also, Kefir (cousin to Yogurt) is a Probiotic which you can purchase at your supermarket. I would take both the capsules and Kefir.
