  • makes sure to keep drinking a lot of fluids as diarrhea can dehydrate you quickly and badly. and probly you should see a doctor you make have an infection or something.

  • Ueigh... Pork is full of parasites, so you might need some blood/GI work. See a doctor....

  • Todays pork doesn't have as many parasites as it did say 40 years ago, my ex FIL is a meat cutter. My suggestion is that if you like yogurt, see if your store carries kefir, it would be either in the yogurt or natural foods area. It's a drinking style yogurt and full of pro-biotics. If you're not much for yogurt get some acidophilus tablets, it's sort of the same thing, without the yogurt. And hypersquirrel is right, make sure you're getting enough fluids. I've tried dried, unsweetened blueberries to combat diarrhea also, about 1/2-1 Tablespoon usually does the trick for me.
    Good luck
