American Travellers suffers from Diarrhea, while travelling

▴ CTravellers suffers from Diarrhea, while travelling
Digestive distress and occasional diarrhea have the potential to significantly compromise a person's vacation or business trip. Around one-in-four travellers are forced to alter their plans due to diarrhea, and around 5% are forced to seek medical care[3].

Diarrhea remains the top health issue facing Americans traveling to high risk countries, affecting 30 to 70 per cent of travelers depending upon their destination, according to biopharmaceutical company Immuron Limited.

Digestive distress and occasional diarrhea have the potential to significantly compromise a person's vacation or business trip. Around one-in-four travelers are forced to alter their plans due to diarrhea, and around five per cent are forced to seek medical care.

Experiencing intestinal tract upsets such as occasional diarrhea, gas and bloating while traveling may not only prove embarrassing, but can also compromise travel experiences and reduce business productivity. Cancelling plans and paying for medical expenses while overseas can also prove costly.

Digestive upsets do not necessarily need to spoil the vacation of a lifetime, or an important business meeting. Travelan®, an extensively tested dietary supplement of clinically proven strength produced by Immuron, can be taken to support a healthy digestive system, whether at home in the USA or when traveling overseas.

Dr Bruce Kane, travel health specialist and owner of eight Passport Health travel medicine clinics in Michigan and Southwest, Florida, explains the high likelihood of developing occasional diarrhea at home or when traveling, and its resulting consequences:

"Occasional diarrhea is typically caused by the consumption of food or water infected with bacteria, which attack the intestines, releasing diarrhea-causing toxins. Bacterial pathogens, including E.coli and salmonella are the main culprit, and are thought to account for up to 80 to 90 per cent of occasional diarrhea cases," said Dr Kane.

"Other factors that can contribute to intestinal upset when traveling include the stress of travel and changes to our established routines including sleep, diet and exercise. At Passport Health, we recommend Travelan® to our patients to support a healthy digestive system and help maintain normal bowel habits while traveling."

"Digestive complaints including occasional diarrhea have the potential to ruin travel plans. Travelan® offers digestive tract protection and helps support the gut's immune defenses. Diarrhea also has the potential to result in post-infectious Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) and several post-infectious autoimmune diseases. Furthermore, medical facilities in developing countries may not be up to US standards."
