People interpret diarrhea differently but the strict defnition as stated: " Diarrhea may be caused by many different disorders ranging from food poisoning, infections, food allergies, malabsorption (not absorbing food properly), medications (prescription and non-prescription) and colitis ". Any persistent diarrhea should come to one's attention and should be addressed by a physician.
