Dear Doctor I am M.M.Namboothiri, aged 57, vegetarian. I have a diarrhea like symptoms. I have painless stool every day. The stool is not a formed one since many months back. It is a loose, semi formed one all the time. daily 2 or 3 times. yellowish or brownish, sticky to the closet. No bad smell. Enormous amount of gas in the lower abdomen. Constant discharge of flatus with LOUD noise, at times it is happening every minute at home. But at office set up it is suppressed. At early morning I need to rush to toilet. stool with large amount of flatus. Due to this, I am unable to travel in early morning hours. tendency to stool after heavy food. Constant sitting job with computer. Once I took antibiotic with TZ combination. the problem was solved. but later it is again repeated. Now it is more than 1 year I took the above medicine. Please advise me on the disease and what treatment I should take. Sincere thanks and Regards M.M.Namboothiri
