    About Diarrhea

    Back to the top

    Diarrhea is a loose or watery bowel movement. It is an extremely common condition that usually goes away on its own within a few days.

    Other symptoms of diarrhea include:

    • Cramping
    • Bloating
    • Fever
    • Vomiting
    • Nausea
    • Dehydration

    Diarrhea is most frequently caused by a viral infection of the bowels, which is commonly called “the stomach flu” or “intestinal flu”.

    Other causes of diarrhea include:

    • Bacteria (such as E. coli)
    • Parasites
    • Intolerance to certain foods (such as Celiac disease or lactose intolerance)
    • Medications (antibiotics frequently list diarrhea as a side effect)

    Most cases of diarrhea will go away after a few days. If diarrhea persists for more than a few days, it may indicate a more serious medical condition such as irritable bowel syndrome or bacterial infection. If left untreated, diarrhea can lead to dehydration, electrolyte deficiencies, and kidney problems. Even though diarrhea is usually treated at home with simple therapies, severe or long-lasting diarrhea can cause significant health problems. If you’ve been experiencing diarrhea for several days without improvement, talk to a doctor or health care provider.

    Treatment Options

    Treatment for diarrhea depends on the cause of the condition. Below is a list of therapies used to treat diarrhea. During your appointment, talk to your provider about what treatment plan might be right for you.

    Diarrhea can cause serious cases of dehydration. Be sure to supplement your treatment with plenty of fluids and electrolytes to maintain hydration.

    Diarrhea Care

    A gastroenterologist is a physician who specializes in the management of diseases of the gastrointestinal tract and liver. Because of their specialized medical training in gastroenterology, endoscopic procedures led by a gastroenterologist often lead to more accurate detection of polyps and cancer with fewer complications.

    The most common conditions, diseases, and disorders diagnosed and treated by gastroenterologists include:

    • Gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD)
    • Heartburn
    • Inflammatory bowel disease (IBD)
    • Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS)
    • Celiac disease
    • Gallbladder or liver disease
    • Acid reflux
    • Hemorrhoids
    • Digestive diseases
    • Cancer (gastrointestinal, liver, pancreas, colon, rectal)

    You will want to see a GI doctor for any conditions related to the digestive or GI tracts, which encompass the esophagus, stomach, small intestine, colon, rectum, pancreas, gallbladder, bile ducts, and liver.

    Your primary care doctor may refer you to a gastroenterologist if you're experiencing abdominal pain, chronic diarrhea or constipation, heartburn, acid reflux, bloating, black bowel movements, rectal bleeding, sudden and unexplainable weight loss, having difficulty swallowing, and more.

    Starting at the age of 50, it is also a good idea to start getting screened routinely for rectal and colon cancer with an endoscopic procedure known as a colonoscopy.

    If you're looking to see a gastroenterologist in West Fargo, ND, but don't know where to begin, let Sesame help. Sesame offers simple, online booking with real, quality GI doctors at affordable upfront prices. The best part is, Sesame works with doctors to set their prices directly on the site. That means you pay a one-time price, without the hassles of insurance networks. Save up to 60% on a new-patient visit today by booking through Sesame.

    Your primary care physician may refer you to a GI specialist to receive medical advice and treatment for a number of conditions, including:

    Acid reflux

    Ulcers

    Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS)

    inflammatory bowel disease (IBD)

    Hepatitis

    Hemorrhoids

    Gallstones

    Gastroesophageal reflux disease (gerd)

    Lactose intolerance

    Pancreatitis

    For conditions of the liver, you may be referred to a herpetologists, a GI doctor special expertise in liver conditions.

    It depends. Telehealth platforms like Sesame make it easier than ever to see a doctor online from the comfort of your home through virtual visits. These are real-time video chats with doctors and providers that are used to address symptoms, discuss prescriptions, and screen for health care conditions. Telehealth (also known as telemedicine) is a convenient way to see a health care provider without requiring the commute and waiting rooms of office visits.

    In-person visits, however, are vital health services. Certain conditions and specialty care services cannot be diagnosed or performed via a telehealth visit. Lab testing, for instance, often requires an in-person appointment at a doctor's office. Similarly, some physical exams, chronic condition consultations, and urgent care needs require in-person care. Some patients feel more comfortable receiving their care through in-person doctor visits, and many telehealth services require in-person visits before a condition can be definitively diagnosed.

    Health care marketplaces like Sesame offer both in-person and virtual care options. If you're unsure whether or not you need to see a provider face-to-face, we recommend that you book a video doctor visit to discuss your concerns and talk through any symptoms you may be experiencing. If an in-person doctor appointment is required, you can easily book a visit through Sesame's scheduling platform.

    Telemedicine (also sometimes called "telehealth") is a form of virtual care that healthcare professionals offer patients looking for efficient, flexible care. With telemedicine, you can speak with a doctor about your symptoms and work to develop a treatment plan that's right for you - without the hassle of having to drive to different doctors' offices or navigate confusing insurance copays. If you've already seen a doctor and need a second opinion or more clarity on your condition, you can schedule a quick and easy telemedicine appointment to get your questions answered on your own time.

    Telehealth appointments also called telemedicine are medical visits that take place over face-to-face real-time video with fully licensed medical professionals including doctors or nurse practitioners.

    Telehealth can be less expensive than traditional face-to-face care. Telehealth can also be more convenient - avoiding the need to travel to a medical facility.

    Telehealth can help people with semi-urgent same-day needs as well as chronic conditions. A study in the journal Telemedicine and e-Health finds that telehealth can be useful for patients with diabetes, heart disease, and hypertension, among other chronic conditions.

    Telehealth is good for urgent care visits when you need a prescription, a refill, or medical care that can be provided over a video call.

    Researchers have found that telehealth services were linked with more home care, fewer emergency department visits, and higher satisfaction.

    For many patients, it is less expensive to use telehealth than face-to-face care. A traditional face-to-face visit with a provider can cost from $100 to $500 on average. Urgent care facility prices also widely vary. A telehealth visit on Sesame ranges from $24 to $70 dollars depending on the region and time of day.

    It is up to the provider to determine what services they offer through a virtual appointment. Examples of care you can find on marketplaces like Sesame include:

    • Primary care
    • Urgent care (for conditions such as rashes, sore throat, migraines, UTIs, and more)
    • Sexual health consultations
    • Mental health consultations
    • Chronic condition management
    • Dermatology consultations
    • Prescription refills
    • Pediatric care

    If you are experiencing a medical emergency, do not use telehealth. Instead, call 9-1-1 or go to your nearest emergency room immediately.

    After you book an online doctor appointment, you will receive an email with a link to join the video visit. You will also be able to access this link in another reminder email you will receive 30 minutes prior to the appointment start time, as well as within your account.
