Cause of diarrhea: First define the problem (do you have soft or frequent stool?), circumstances under which diarrhea developed (malabsorption, pancreatic maldigestion, food intolerances, stressful times, exposure to ill individuals, food poisoning, ischemic gut, inflammatory colitis, etc.), severity (stool volume, dehydration, blood, night-time awakening, weight loss), ; duration.

I am 24 yrs old male, my stool analysis have the pH value alkaline pH8.0 , and it have 1-3 pus cells, are these values in the normal range ?

Normal, irrelevant: Despite advice you can find on line, "stool analysis" is not recommended except specific tests for particular problems in people with symptoms or otherwise at high risk for certain digestive or intestinal disorders. In a healthy person without symptoms, these findings are meaningless. See your doctor if you have symptoms like unexplained diarrhea, abdominal pain, etc. Otherwise no worries. ...Read more

My 4 month's baby stool test report having pus cells 6-10. Is it abnormal??

Suggests infection: Fecal leukocytes are not normally present in stool in healthy individuals, and if 6-10 is considered moderately elevated and suggest inflammation from infection, usually a bacterial infection such as Salmonella or Shigella or potentially Ameba. Viruses or allergy cause less reaction. Leukocytes in stool can also be associated with inflammatory bowel disease, but this is unlikely in an infant. ...Read more

My 2y old had amoeba 2 months ago.Stool analysis was done to check if it is gone& 3-5 pus cells, undigested food were found.Does he still have amoeba?

Amoebic dysentery: Did they check for amoeba/parasites on this stool sample? I assume they did. If there was no evidence of amoebiasis, then it's probably gone. The inflammation in the gut can take a longer time to go away however. If your child is still having diarrhea, i recommend you talk with your doctor about how to help the intestines recover from the recent infection. ...Read more
