What Causes Dysentery?
In order to deal properly with dysentery we need to understand and — if possible — remove the underlying causes and risk factors.
We need to ask: "What else is going on inside the body that might allow dysentery to develop?"

Accurate diagnosis of the factors behind dysentery consists of three steps:
Step 1: List the Possible Causative Factors
Identify all disease conditions, lifestyle choices and environmental risk factors that can lead to dysentery. For example, parasite infection.
Step 2: Build a Symptom Checklist
Identify all possible symptoms and risk factors of each possible cause, and check the ones that apply:
unusual stool color
macrocytic red cells
regular postprandial somnolence
dark areas under eyes
elevated eosinophil count
current GI infection/parasite
... and so on
Step 3: Rule Out or Confirm each Possible Cause
A differential diagnosis of your symptoms and risk factors finds the likely cause of dysentery.
