Does fluid and stool filled loops in small bowel w abnormal gas pattern w no inflammation or obstruction a sign of ileus?

Does fluid and stool filled loops in small bowel w abnormal gas pattern w no inflammation or obstruction a sign of ileus?

Possibly: Ileus refers to disruption in normal propulsive activity of the GI tract. The bowel dilates with gas and stool and there is no evidence of bowel sounds when auscultating the abdomen. Present usage restricts the term to disruptions caused by the failure of peristalsis, rather than by mechanical obstruction usually induced by a parasympathetic response due to surgery, infection or medications ...Read more

Is it natural for a 20 months baby to have white stool?

Is it natural for a 20 months baby to have white stool?

White as in "white": The color of stool comes from liver secretions. If the liver is not functioning or its ducts are blocked, then the child will have white (acholic) stools. This rare condition (biliary atresia) is unlikely in a 20 mos old who would have been noted to be ill from infancy. If the baby is well, then the color of the stool likely represents her diet. Too much milk, not enough meat/veg/grains/fruit. ...Read more

Much of the modern U.S. Diet tends to cause constipation: fried foods, cheese, white breads & pastas, white rice, red meats, sweets, bananas, excess milk, & more. Avoid or limit these foods. Instead, use fresh veggies, fruits, white meats, lots of water, whole grain cereals/breads/pastas, brown rice. Exercise/activity helps, too. ...Read more

It is normal as is the loose consistency. Some digested material will take on a darker tint than others & the germs in the gut will also impact the final product. I'd ignore the whole issue. ...Read more
