Please go online and look up "Body Mass Index" (BMI). That will tell you what you need to know about your weight. ...Read more

The teenager, otherwise fine, has stools that often float and otherwise tend to be lighter colored, sometimes soft and yellowish. Is this something to be concerned about? He has always been a skinny kid, as well.

Bowl moments went from hard logs to skinny soft loose stool. Why might this be? Bit foul smell

Constipation: It is always better to have soft stools. I bet there is a new change in your diet, and probably you are eating more vegetables and drinking more fluids and this is healthy. Sometimes when we are always stressed out our bowel movement is softer and more frequent. ...Read more
