My mother has been on dialysis for over 2 years. She has always had loose stools after eating and now is having diarrhea stools daily. Never constipation. Will Probiotics help? And if so, what do I look for? Can she take any anti-diarrhea meds?

I cannot recommend treatments without performing a complete history and physical examination.  Probiotics are generally regarded as safe for patients with chronic kidney disease (CKD).  I suggest that you discuss this with mother’s physician.
