What would cause my 5 year old to have a very gritty, hard to clean bowel movement?

Berries are very good at making poops gritty and sandy and difficult to clean. Poops come in all shapes and sizes and textures and as long as your little one is growing and feeling well, there is nothing to worry about. ...Read more

Always feel faint during and after having a bowel movement. It doesn't get better until I lie down or sometime not at all. What causes it? B/P Normal.

Always feel faint during and after having a bowel movement. It doesn't get better until I lie down or sometime not at all. What causes it? B/P Normal.

Your lactose intolerance and IBS may have caused some volume contraction - you can counteract this by pushing fluids and liberalizing your salt intake. Good luck! ...Read more

Of course, eating green vegetables can also lead to green bowel movements. If you have a prolonged change in bowel habitus, this warrants medical examination. ...Read more
