Also known as:
Traveler's diarrhea is a common medical problem for people traveling from developed, industrialized countries to developing areas of the world. Traveler's diarrhea is sometimes called by its more colorful names: Montezuma's revenge, Delhi belly and Turkey trots.
High-risk areas for traveler's diarrhea include developing countries in Africa, Asia, the Middle East and Latin America. Low-risk areas include the developed countries of North America, Central Europe, Australia and Japan.
International travel is an exciting and potentially dangerous endeavor. Travelers will encounter different public health standards and environmental conditions while away from home, and these can lead to illness. If you are going abroad, Providence Traveler's Services
