Description

Motility-related diarrhea is a type of diarrhea caused by an abnormality in the movement of the muscles in the digestive tract. This type of diarrhea is caused by a disruption in the normal contractions of the muscles in the intestines, which can lead to an increased rate of passage of stool through the digestive tract. Symptoms of motility-related diarrhea include frequent, loose, watery stools, abdominal cramping, and urgency to have a bowel movement. Treatment for motility-related diarrhea may include medications to slow down the movement of the intestines, dietary changes, and lifestyle modifications.
