I have been having diarrhea constantly for about at least 6 months. I have noticed no weight loss and I have been using diet pills. (used to use xenadrine and now on fastin) Everytime I go I notice a fishy smell and it has a jelly like consistency. I also have been noticing acne and oily hair along with hair growth and thickening.
Several conditions can cause fishy smell of faeces diet changes are the commonest cause. Malabsoprtion, intestinal infection, inflammatory bowel disease, antibiotic colitis are possible conditions with fishy smelling diarrhea. Each of the conditions mentioned above has distinct symptoms, either one may cause foul-smelling diarrhea. If the condition persists, it is important to consult a physician for accurate diagnosis and appropriate treatment. Knowing the possible causes of fishy smelling diarrhea may help prevent it. Do keep me posted.
Best luck and regards!
