Did you try to increase your potassium,or daily iron pill?Try a daily dose of iron and give it a few days, I take mine at night my stomach is sensitive. Bannanas,(potassium in this fruit helps) one a day be cause it has alot of sugar and it will make diaharia worse. Try to stay off sugar even juice. The sugar will make the diaharia worse. Try the BRAT diet just to get it under control. (Banannas,Rice,Applesauce,dry Toast). Hope it helps! remember dont dehydrate and gatoraide has alot of sugar. You need electrolites to keep from dehydrating
