i have been having very watery poo for a week or 2....my symptoms are not that bad really.  Does this mean that i have inflamation in a lot of my colon....my only pain is very low and while i have bm.  Could inflamation mainly down low cause the watery bm's.

watery diarrhea indicates a lack of absorption of water in the large intestine. also sugars in the colon can draw out water from the colon and cause watery diarrhea.
Diagnosed 8/99. Suffered for almost 10 years. I am currently on the Specific Carbohydrate Diet and am nearing remission. I feel fantastic! I have lossed so many years to this disease.


Doc wanted to put me on 6-mp or Remicade, but I refused to take the medications! Currently on the Specific Carbohydrate Diet.  I'm in remission and life is like it always should have been.
