Hi, I was just wondering why we are told to drink lots of water if we suffer from IBS-D. I know we need to replenish the fuel lost through a D episode, but it almost seems to make my diarrhea worse. Am I correct in saying that when we have diarrhea, our aim is to have a normal, formed bowel movement? Do you not think that the more liquid we drink, the more watery our bowel movements become. It seems to be the case with me. I can't drink anything. My IBS-D is particularly bad today for some reason, I don't know why. I've been putting off taking immodium as I took 2 tablets on Sunday night, and I'm trying to limit myself to taking no more than 2 per week.
