Your Poop and what it can tell you
Your Poop and what it can tell you
Good morning all,
I know, it’s not a great subject to read about over your cornflakes this morning or anytime.
You’re poop and what it can tell you is a subject that most people find difficult to talk about sensibly, although, we may joke and laugh about it. However, it’s the most natural movement we all have in common. Your poop can give you so much information about your health, from it’s consistency to what it looks like.
I hear you, I honestly do, we don’t inspect our bowl movements and we certainly don’t want to sit any longer than necessary in the odour they produce. If we did though, what would we find and what could we learn?
After all, our bodies can tell us so much about our health if we just listen to them, observe them and with a few adjustments to our lifestyle we can put them back on track.
We don’t always need to run to the doctors every time something isn’t quite right, normally with a few adjustments to your diets can get things back on track within a couple of days. If after a few days of adjustments and things haven’t improved, then it would be a good idea to see your doctor, In most cases it’s not serious, so don’t panic.
Bristol Stool Chart
This is a copy of the medical Bristol Stool Chart which covers the 7 different types of poops people can produce and it will give you an idea where your poop sits on the chart.
1 To 7 poops explained
Hard lumpy poop thats hard to pass. If your poop looks and feels this way it’s normally because its been sitting in your bowel for sometime and probably means, you’re probably constipated. Help your system by adding more fibre to your diet and drinking a glass of water before bed. Too much protein, white bread or alcohol in your diet can play its part in constipation. If it continues for a couple of weeks or more, it could be time to visit your doctor.
Poop like this can also be a sign that you’re constipated. Again, try eating more fibre rich foods in your diet and drink more water to move things along. These are a few things to try, if your a cereal lover, check that it contains at least 5g of fibre and less than 5g of sugar. Pears, peas, nuts, berries and rhy bread are all rich in fibre.
Doctors like this kind of poop, they consider it normal and think its what you should pass when poop time comes calling, that’s because it’s soft and easy to pass. If your poop is like this then everything is normal and going to the loo shouldn’t take longer than a minute or two.
Everyone’s toiletry habits are different but Doctors like to think of this as poop you want to have. Doctors will advise you, in a perfect world, you should have one of these every 1 to 3 days.
This type of poop is easy to pass, but you may feel a sense of urgency about getting to the bathroom. That’s normally a sign of mild diarrhoea. Generally, the body will right its self and your symptoms will pass within a couple of days. It’s normally your body way of getting rid of something it doesn’t like.
If your poop has you visiting the bathroom more have than three times a day, you have diarrhoea. You will need to drink plenty of fluids so you don’t become hydrated but you will also need to replace the minerals you’re losing. Your pharmacy will be able to sell you electrolytes over the counter. Fruit juice and soups can also help recovery.
Nobody wants this type of poop! This poop has moved through your system at lightning speed and has you running to the toilet frequently. In many cases, the diarrhoea is a accompanied by stomachache and eventually a very sore bottom. It’s time to visit your doctor if these symptoms persist for more than 2 days. Your doctor will check for signs of dehydration (dry mouth, sleepiness, headache, or dizziness), severe pain in your tummy or rear end, or for a fever of 102 degrees or higher.
Colours of your poop
Your poop can arrive in many different colours. Maybe the colour of your poop has you asking questions?
Brown – The colour of your poop depends on a few things: your diet and how much bile is in it. Bile is a yellow-green fluid that helps digest fats. A healthy poop should reflect a mixture of all colours of the food you eat and that bile. Most shades of brown, or even green, is considered OK.
Green – Sometimes green poop visits but don’t panic, every once in a while is considered OK. Maybe you’ve eaten lots of green vegetables (which is good) or consumed high amounts of green food colouring. It could mean that your food is moving through your system too quickly and causing diarrhoea and the green in your bile doesn’t have time to break down. If your green poop persists, see your doctor.
Shades of Red – This could be from eating foods such as beetroot or maybe a reddish medicine. Your poop will return to its normal colour.
But a bright red stool could mean bleeding in your large intestine. Sometimes it’s blood from your rectum, too, from a scratch or a haemorrhoid. If you keep passing red stools, check with your doctor.
Black – If your poop is black, the cause might be an iron supplement, stomach medicine or maybe you’ve eaten too many liquorice the night before. None of these? then it’s time to visit your doctor.
A black stool, or one that appears dark maroon, smells bad, and looks tarry, may be a sign of bleeding from high in your digestive tract, like your stomach.
Shades of white – Yellowish poop is fine in breastfed infants, but for others, it’s possible your poop is telling you, you’ve eaten too much fat and your body’s having trouble absorbing nutrients like it should. Sometimes, stools can be white or even chalky-looking. That may be a side effect of some medication, but it also could mean your bile duct is clogged. Time to visit your doctor for further information.
