My body is having a midlife crisis - I have been diagnosed with diabetes and high cholestral and my periods have also gone erratic and stupidly heavy

So I have drugs - metformin for diabetes, something I can't remember for cholesteral, tranexamic and mefenamic acid for the monthly

Each one causes the squits, my stomach is gurgling constantly, I can't be away from a loo for long and that is with a daily dose of imodium!

Anyone have any remedies for drug induced loo running??

is it early days yet. might it settle down in a couple more weeks.

If not, it's OK to treat the side effects, can you up your immodium dosage?

Try eating at least 1 banana a day, some stewed apple, rice and pasta. Stay away from fatty foods, citrus fruits and veg that has you running. Bread is good but can cause bloating.

Should help ease the loo running. Drink plenty of water too!

Hope this helps smile
