Diarrhea is also common in people who suffer from a carcinoid tumor. It can be associated with flushing, or it can occur without other symptoms. Its severity varies from one person to another. Severe diarrhea can stop a person from having a normal life, even making them reluctant to leave their home. However, the main danger of diarrhea is that it can lead to dehydration. Dehydration occurs due to the persistent loss of substantial amounts of water and electrolytes.
