Drink only bottled water on holidays abroad to avoid getting traveller’s diarrhea
It’s estimated that between 20% and 50% of travellers experience Traveller’s Diarrhea (TD) – an intestinal upset that leaves you spending more time in the bathroom than on the beach – with symptoms that include frequent loose, watery stools as well as nausea, cramping and fever.
Most cases of TD are caused by bacteria – often the result of poor sanitation; in rarer cases a virus or parasites may be the culprit. It is more commonly experienced among travellers visiting developing countries in Latin America, Asia, Africa and the Middle East.
People with compromised immune systems, or diseases such as diabetes or chronic bowel problems are at particular risk.
