Discussions that mention potassium

Open to All Other Health Topics board

Please help! My daughter, mid 40's, has been on a medically supervised total liquid diet for almost 6 mos. and has lost close to 150 lbs.! The biggest problem is watery diarrhea--several times a day! She was told to cut back on chewing sugar free gum or sucking on sugar free candy. She did that. She has to rely on Imodium to help and that doesn't always. The other night and quite often, she has to 'shower' twice a day due to accidental 'happening's night and day---causing a rush to the bathroom but not getting there in time. The major medical center she goes to, knows of the problem, but so far have not given a good solution. She does take potassium tablets and also has blood tests periodically. Any comments would be appreciated. Thanks
