transit time for beets in stools?

Variable per patient

Feces
Bowel frequency in America varies from 3 movements daily to 1 every three to four days. Much of this variablity is dependent on colonic transit. As measured by sitz marker study (a capsule that releases 24 plastic rings in the stomach that then are recorded by x-ray as they move forward in the gut), normal evacuation is defined as >80% rings defecated by 5 days after sitz marker ingestion.

Dr. Bryan H. Levey answered:

Stool color is grey. help! please?

Stop worrying

Intestine
Stool color reflects what you've been eating: Fatty or not fatty, high or low fiber, plant or animal, etc.etc.. The two colors that worry me most are black (bleeding in the stomach) or red (bleeding in the intestines). If you feel good and there have been no changes in your health, relax. If you don't feel good and your health has changed, then stool color might be a clue. See your doctor.

What is color of a clay-colored stool?

Light (clay) colored

Feces
Bile & your gut's bacterial flora account in large part for color & volume of stool. Absence of bile results in pale,clay-color stool. Lots of other things also affect stool appearance: ingested foods, medications (PeptoBismol, antacids), swallowed blood or bleeding from gut, infection/antibiotics, inflammation, maldigestion, & the amount of mucus mixed with stool, as well as transit time of food.
