What your poop says about your health.

460px-Bristol Stool Chart

Your poo's smell, shape and color can be warning signs about some health problems.
Do you realise you should pass a stool at least once or twice a day? Did you know if your stool smells really foul you may be ingesting too many animal proteins? Did you know if there is mucous present in your stool that you may be eating too many unhealthy foods or foods that you are allergic to?

When your body's gastrointestinal tract is not functioning correctly, stool colors can tell you what's going on in your insides and whether you might have bowel problems.
While most people probably don't want to put much thought into pooping, it's an essential body function that can tell them if something is wrong. A change in bowel movements could be due merely to a change in diet, but it could also mean the body is fighting an infection or dealing with a serious condition.
Stool is made up of undigested food, bacteria, mucus and dead cells. It usually smells bad because of the bacteria and parasites but it also can have compounds that produce an especially unpleasant smell.
A change in stool shape also could be cause for concern. Stools that are narrow and pencil-thin are thought by some experts to be a symptom of colon cancer. "It could be a sign of obstruction in the lower part of the colon," which means the bowel is partially blocked, getting in the way of the fecal matter that is passing through.  Another sign of a potential problem is soft stool. Stool that sticks to the side of the toilet bowl, or is difficult to flush, could indicate the presence of too much oil.
They look like fat droplets, which can mean the body is not absorbing fat properly." Diseases such as chronic pancreatitis block the body from properly absorbing fat. Whether stool floats depends on how much gas is in it. "Generally, stool that sinks or floats don't mean there's a problem

Constipation Dry, hard stools that are hard to eliminate are a sign of constipation. People who are constipated may have bowel movements fewer than three times a week. Constipation is a common complaint, and most people experience it at least once in their lives.
Constipation could be caused by a number of factors, including a poor diet, lack of exercise, certain medications, lack of fluids or various bowel disorders. If ignored, constipation could lead to complications such as hemorrhoids or rectal bleeding. The best way to relieve symptoms is to follow a well balanced high fiber diet drink plenty of water, try to exercise regularly and go to the bathroom when you feel the urge.
Diarrhea Diarrhea happens when loose, watery stools pass through your bowels too quickly. Generally it lasts one or two days and goes away on its own. "It's a normal way for the body to get rid of toxic substances, like bacteria or viral infections," but it also can lead to dehydration.
Diarrhea also can suggest a more serious problem. Diarrhea that lasts for at least four weeks may be a sign of a chronic disease, such as irritable  bowel syndrome  (IBS) or Crohn's disease. But diarrhea also could be a sign of chewing gum that contains sugar alcohol, "Someone who chews one or two packs of sugar-free  gum a day could also get diarrhea." research shows.
If diet is the cause, the problem should resolve itself once the offending ingredient leaves your system within a day or so. Otherwise, the cause may be medical, and you should consult a Dr.


 Here's a guide:

  1. Medium brown is the color of healthy poop.
  2. Pale, gray, clay-like stool suggests a liver problem . Bile from the liver is what makes stools brown; not enough and you get ashy shades indicating anything from gallstones to hepatitis, pancreatitis to cirrhosis.
  3. Black or dull red stool sounds scary, but is often related to food or medication. You may see black after consuming black licorice, blueberries, iron pills, or diarrhea medication. (Call your doc if you see tarry black poop, which can be a sign of bleeding in the upper intestines or even the stomach.) And red? That may come from beets and tomatoes.
  4. Green stools aren't just for St. Patrick's Day, although they can be from celebratory beer (it's the green dye). Green can also come from eating lots of green vegetables or taking iron or certain medications.
  5. Bloody or maroon/red poop is most often caused by hemorrhoids but red poop can also be from intestinal bleeding, so call your doc.
If you’re worried about any other colors you're dropping, keep a 3- to 7-day record and share the shades with your doctor.
 Healthy poop looks like.
  • Solid, smooth and log like
  • Nice chocolate brown color
  • Sinks to the bottom of the toilet bowl
  • Nothing else, no blood, mucous or fat
  • No smell

If you see that your stool is unhealthy, it may mean you are eating the wrong kinds of food.

ITS NATURAL "Everyone poops!" There is no shame in discussing yours after all it is coming from your own body.
