High Quality Content by WIKIPEDIA articles! Antibiotic-associated diarrhea (AAD) results from an imbalance in the colonic microbiota caused by antibiotic therapy. Microbiota alteration changes carbohydrate metabolism with decreased short-chain fatty acid absorption and an osmotic diarrhea as a result. Another consequence of antibiotic therapy leading to diarrhea is overgrowth of potentially pathogenic organisms such as Clostridium difficile. It is defined as frequent loose and watery stools with no other complications. Probiotic treatment can reduce the incidence and severity of AAD as indicated in several meta-analyses. However, further documentation of these findings through randomized, double blind, placebo- controlled trials are warranted.
