  • A high fibre diet may make diarrhea worse for some people.
  • Fibre is part of the plant that your body cannot breakdown. There are 2 kinds: soluble and insoluble. Soluble fibre soaks up water and slows down movement while insoluble fibre does not take in water and speeds up movement. 
  • Aim to eat more soluble fibre such as oats, barley and bananas. Also, remove the skins, seeds and membranes from vegetables and fruit.
  • Talk to your doctor about the possibility of taking medications to help with diarrhea. 
  • Be sure to include more foods that are suggested in the "Eating Hints For People with Diarrhea" handout from Princess Margaret and/or speak to a Registered Dietitian
