Postprandial definition

occurring after lunch or dinner, after a meal


Diarrhea that happens after you eat a meal is known as postprandial diarrhea (PD). This type of diarrhea is often unexpected, and the feeling to use the restroom can be quite urgent.

Some people with PD experience painful bowel movements (BMs). In most cases, this pain resolves after the BM.

The condition isn’t uncommon, but getting to a diagnosis can be difficult. That’s because PD is sometimes the symptom of another condition.

For example, some people experience only diarrhea with irritable bowel syndrome. This is called IBS-diarrhea or IBS-D. PD can be a symptom of IBS-D.
