Chronic Diarrhea in Children

About Your Child's Care and Condition

Diarrhea happens to all children, but it's important to know when it's just a normal case and when it's something more. Chronic diarrhea, when diarrhea continues or comes and goes for more than four weeks, can signal a number of more serious diseases. Chronic diarrhea can be a symptom of infections, gastrointestinal disorders, food allergies or intolerance or even diabetes. 

If your child's diarrhea lasts longer than 24 hours or keeps coming back, it's time to talk to your doctor. Discovering the cause behind the diarrhea is the best way to find a treatment. Our pediatric gastroenterologists get your little one's tummy feeling better and put your mind at ease.
