Info for travellers

While travelling, diarrhea is one of the most common issues among:

vacationers
business travellers
service industry employees
students1
85% of cases of traveller’s diarrhea are caused by pathogenic bacteria, and 60% of those stem from bacteria Escherichia coli 2, 3
Up to 60% of travellers will suffer from diarrhea1

There are several risk factors for diarrhea when taking a trip

  • Food
  • Sexe
  • Age
  • Characteristics of the host (including its genetic characteristics)
  • Destination
  • Duration of the stay
  • Season

astric acid secretion reduction drugs such as proton pump inhibitors or antihistamine (second generation) blocker increase the risk of diarrhea when traveling by a factor of 12

The degree of risk depends on the destination

Preventative measures to avoid diarrhea while travelling1:

  • Take Bio-K+® Travel Protection for an intake of good bacteria that help balance intestinal flora. This is the first line of defence against germs and other agents that cause infections.
  • Washing one’s hands reduces the risk of diarrhea by 30%.
  • Avoid drinking water from surface sources (lakes, streams or rivers), untreated tap water and ice cubes.
  • Avoid eating fruit and vegetables that cannot be washed or peeled.
  • Avoid eating undercooked meat, fish or seafood.
  • Avoid eating food that was left at room temperature for long periods, as these may be contaminated.
  • Avoid consuming unpasteurized milk, cheese, ice cream or other dairy products.
