He doesn't feel bad, complain, or have fever. But I think it's been a month since I've seen something that wasn't essentially liquid.

He eats bread, chicken nuggets, pizza, crackers, burgers and fries. That's about it.

We're taking him to the doc tomorrow -- the school system will send him home daily for this -- but it would help if anybody encountered a similar situation, and a fix. Doctors sometimes don't know either, especially about diet.

Have they tested for Celiac disease and lactose intolerance?

My doctor tests for Celiac every year or so because they can develop it at any time.

has he taken any antibiotics lately? I would try probiotics, it can't hurt and could make a world of difference

John had liquid diarrhea for a very long time. He has tested negative to every celiac test available (blood, biopsy, and genetic testing). We finally happened on some diet modifications. I remembered reading somewhere that carbs digest differently when combined with a protein. If he eats processed carbs alone (especially noodles and tortilla chips), we know he WILL have diarrhea. But when combined with protein, he's good to go. "What's your protein?" is a question you'll hear me asking around here every day!
