How is traveler's diarrhea diagnosed?
Usually a physical examination and full medical history will be enough to diagnose traveler's diarrhea, but sometimes further tests are required. These may be blood tests to check your blood count, electrolytes, liver function and antibodies, or a feces microscopy culture and sensitivity (MCS), to check for live bacteria, ova, cysts and parasites (OCP).
