I'm sure she can ask to see a dietician. I was advised to have a low fibre diet, eat little and often, then introduce fruit, veg and other fibre and avoid spicy food. My gp prescribed a her toy dose of loperamide. To combat dehydration i was told to make up st Mark's solution, restrict tea and coffee and restrict fluid intake to 1500ml including the solution. Things did improve. Good luck to your friend, it's not fun!
