Is loose stool always unhealthy? I drink a lot of water and eat a lot of salad. I also take around 700mg of vitamin C a day

Not always: Generally loose stools mean that things are moving relatively quickly through your intestines, which water and salad would encourage.700mg of vit. C is unlikely to affect this. Conversely, hard dense stool has spent a long time transiting the intestines. In general, it is healthier to have food and waste move quickly thru the GI tract than linger too long, so loose stools are often not a problem. ...Read more

Why do I feel like passing stools instead of urinating after drinking water?

Why do I feel like passing stools instead of urinating after drinking water?

The urge: To urinate comes when the bladder is full...a drink of water does not by itself cause the urge...

I have been taking flaxseed oil twice a day, eating vegetables, fruit and drinking water. Now I'm seeing mucus in my stool. Is that normal?

Mucus: In the stool is normal in small amounts. If you are having abdominal pain, a large amount of mucus, or blood in the stool, it might be a sign of something called inflammatory bowel disease. See your local doctor if these symptoms are present to be tested. Most likely it is the change in your diet causing you to notice the change in the stool. ...Read more

My sister, a 14 year old, her stool won't come out for 4 days and it causes a lot of pain and burn to her, can drinking water soften her hard old stool?

My sister, a 14 year old, her stool won't come out for 4 days and it causes a lot of pain and burn to her, can drinking water soften her hard old stool?

Water will soften: However, if she has a stool impaction, then the water will just build up behind it or go around it. She may benefit from stool softeners, senna or exlax, or magnesium citrate. If those do not help, she could possibly use suppositories. Best of luck and I hope this helps. ...Read more
