Fat In Bm
Is it possible to remove actual body fat through a bm? If so how often does it occur? And how does it occur? Thanks in advance
I have had a very thick yellow/orangish mucous from my rectum the last few day, haven't had a bm since fri, should I worry?
Yes..: Go and see your doctor as soon as possible. This may be a sign of infection, obstruction or any other significant problem. The only way to tell is by examination. ...Read more
I have ibs. Why when it acts up it's always in the morning? I'll have a big BM. Soft loose mushy thick. Turns water dark brown.
IBS...: Can be rather unpredictable. People with and without IBS tend to have bowel movements in the morning, quite simply because when you wake up in the morning, it is been at least eight hours since you have used the restroom, and the rectum tends to fill up the longer you go without defecating. I would recommend eating a lot of fiber, and if your symptoms persist, talk to your family or GI doctor. ...Read more
Have ibs. Sometimes my BM will be loose mushy. Water will turn dark coffee color. Also appear oily. Had fece fat test which was neg. Any thoughts?
I have had thick BM but for past wks. I have daily BM but small. Can IBS, tension or anxiety cause rectal liquid laxa. To only expel clear water?
IBS: This sounds a bit like IBS to me. You can have even mucous discharge as a symptom of IBS. Anxiety can lead to worsening of the IBS. A rectal enema or laxative can sometimes not work and only water comes back out. I would also try to take a fiber rich supplement regularly for a week or two. ...Read more
I was Dx w/IBS younger. I'm 28. What causes varying stool thickness? I can have BM looks thick & go have a second BM same day & it be much thinner. Why
Stool bulk: Stool bulk varies with intestinal contents (solid vs liquids) and transit time through the intestinal tract. It is not unusual for a large stool to be followed by a thinner stool or, in the case of irritable bowel syndrome, by progressively looser stools as the morning goes on. Patients with ibs often alternate with constipation and diarrhea depending on intestinal motility on a given day. ...Read more
After BM, there was a lot of dark thick blood in the toilet. I have hemorrhoids, but they cause bright red spotting. Safe to ignore if isolated?
No, do not ignore: Any time you have bleeding in your stool it's important to see your Dr. And get it evaluated. Especially since this has changed in color to dark thick blood which may be a sign of an upper Intestinal bleeding site. Be safe, call your Dr. And get an appt soon! Best wishes. ...Read more
Dx w IBS younger. Occas. Anxiety. Was having normal thick stool, but for past few wks I do have daily BM but its small shape & size varies. IBS again?
Possibly: IBS is considered when there is (usually crampy) abdominal pain, change in bowel habits (such as either constipation, diarrhea, or going back and forth), and usually bloating with no alarm symptoms (blood in stool, unexplained weight loss, nausea/vomiting, etc). If having a bowel movement makes pain and bloating better, this increases likelihood it is IBS. See your doctor to get evaluatedGood luck ...Read more

I am having rumbling, gas, some nausea, diarrhea, and sometimes a thick brown mucus instead of normal bm. Also a protrusion from anal opening. Help! ?
GI distress: Those symptoms can occur in a variety of gastrointestinal complaints, & a diagnosis would involve a detailed history & a physical. General information that may or may not apply in your case: Protrusions from the anus frequently are hemorrhoids, but can be rectal prolapse (rectal tissue). Short-term nausea/diarrhea can be viral gastroenteritis, but many, many other causes exist. ...Read more
Severely constipated. Tried to pass bm bt TONS of thick milky white/yellow liquid came out. Then an insane amt of thick mucus came out bt still no stool?
Get checked: This could be a serious problem and needs to be discussed with a physician in detail. Bowel obstruction, infection or inflammatory bowel disease are potential serious explanations. Visit the ER if you have associated abdominal pain, shaking chills or fever, or dizziness. Get well! ...Read more

Unsaturated: The weight of opinion is that a diet high in saturated fat increases LDL cholesterol / vascular risk (heart attack, stroke). Epidemiologic studies especially based on what people say they've eaten and without controlling for other factors generate unreliable results; this is "best current thinking." trans-fats are generally no longer available over concerns about risk despite no real animal model. ...Read more
Almonds, peanuts: Nuts are high in fat, which in part explains why they taste so good. Almonds have a lower amount than most, but not much lower. Peanuts are very much lower but they in fact are a legume and not a true nut. It is best, from a fat standpoint, to treat all nuts as equivalent in fat. ...Read more
Plant based: Basically any fat from a plant source is good. The healthiest people in the world eat mostly a plant based diet with their average meat consumption being about three times a week. When they do consume meat, it is almost always fish. The whole idea behind the omega 3 fats, etc came from observing the eating habits of these healthy cultures. ...Read more
