My aunt 63 years old and is undergoing dialysis 3 times a week. A year ago she started experiencing diarrhea several times a day. Within the last year it has progressed to up to 10x a day. She goes immediately after she eats. She's undergone numerous tests to no avail. One of her doctors prescribed enzymes which seemed to help for a few weeks. The problem continues to worsen daily. Last night she said she was up 14 times. She's lost 80 lbs. She cannot leave home without the fear of knowing she will have an accident. Any suggestions greatly appreciated. Depression is setting in. I find it very difficult to accept the fact that none of her physicians have an explanation or can diagnose the problem. She is so incredibly weak. Please help.
