    Loose stools for about a week now

    Hello. For almost a week now, I have been pooping once a day but with loose stools :( Itís not completely watery but they are quite moist and unusual for me (sorry TMI). I donít have any tummy ache or so.

    This has happened to me a lot before but it would only last a day or two and not this long. Usually because of something bad I ate.

    Today, I had to poop thrice and it was still loose.

    I recently had a bloodwork done for my annual at work and nothing remarkable found except elevated cholesterol. CBC and ECG and kidneys are fine. Unfortunately I didnít have any test related to my tummy.

    Has anyone else had this? Iím concerned that it has going on for a week now. Again, Iíve been pooping loose stools for a week now but only once a day (morning) except for today when I had to poop thrice :(

    Something similar happened to me last year - very loose soft stools every day.
    I started to worry about it thanks to my HA, which probably made it worse. Mine lasted for months. At least 3 or 4 months anyway. And in the end it just sorted itself out, had to put it down to just one of those things.
    I'm not saying yours will last for months but don't worry about it, a week isn't a long time at all. Just try to eat a clean diet with lots of fiber and water.

    And I don't know what age you are but the older you get the longer it takes the body to recover from things. I'm in my 40s now and I have noticed this for about 10 years I'd say.

    Thank you. My stools have gone back to normal now. I do think it was the kimchi that started it. Sad to say I think my favorite Korean restaurant hasn't been serving the freshest ingredients lately. :(

    Thank you. I'm 30 now. My stools seem to have gone back to normal now. I suspect it was the kimchi or Korean food that I started eating lately. Shame because I've been patronizing that particular store for a year now and it's just now that their food has gone bad.
