    Can you give us more information?
    How long have you had it?
    When did it start?
    Is the turtle behaving differently than usual?
    Is it eating?
    What is your setup and temperatures?

    We all want to help, but you need to give us some information to work with.

    Might be worms (parasites) or needs more fiber. What do you feed?

    It’s eating.
    It’s outdoors by the pond.
    Tropical weather.
    It’s lethargic.

    Earthworms.
    Vegetables.
    It’s outdoors so it hunts...

    How do you know it's diarrhea? Sometimes they squirt water out their cloaca.

    Have you ever kept turtles before, or is this your first one?

    We need to see pictures of the turtle and where it lives.
    How long have you had it?
    Is the diarrhea white in color?
