Share

Intestine (Definition)

The gastrointestinal tract starts at the mouth, travel down the tunnel (esophagus), which connects to the stomach, which then empties into the duodenum, jejunum, and ileum---the three parts of the small intestine (@25 feet). This empties into the colon or large intestine (about 5 feet), which then becomes the sigmoid colon, rectum and out the anus. So, every morsel eaten ...Read more

What causes nausea after eating meat/or greasy foods, which i rarely eat. Vomiting relieves symptoms, 4-7 bowel movements/day, loser stool than usual.

Fat malapsorption : Gallbladder, pancreas & other parts of the GI system constantly produce natural compounds to help with digestion of fats (e.g. Greasy foods). An alternation in this intricate mechanism may impede the body from normally absorbing fatty foods. Lose stools & steatorrhea may be observed. When accompanied by vomiting, problems of the pancreas of gallbladder are considered. Internist or a GI dr. ...Read more

I passed out watery stool and vomited after few hours. And i have been burping a lot. Is this some kind of bowel obstruction?

Gastroenteritis.: The symptoms and their acuity argue more towards acute gastroenteritis than a bowel obstruction. This could be food-borne or viral. If you're passing some sort of stool and gas, it would be unlikely that you have a bowel obstruction. Give this a few days, see how it goes. If you become very distended in the abdomen, seek immediate medical attention. ...Read more

That'sOneWayToDiet!: You sure you didn't see an exorcist for that?It usually goes in reverse: first the vomiting, then the diarrhea.So you must be a left-handed dyslexic redhead.A lot of fat in the stool can be caused by a lot of things & your doctor is right,it's over so it's a moot point unless..it happens again,then it'll be time to get serious and tested.The watery brown liquid?Hard to say,depends on what you ate ...Read more

I take bcaa supple. But seems to give me more frequent bowel move. Does it mean i'm not digesting efficiently? Should i stop taking them? Bm looks like food sometimes instead of feces.

I take bcaa supple. But seems to give me more frequent bowel move. Does it mean i'm not digesting efficiently? Should i stop taking them? Bm looks like food sometimes instead of feces.

Not necessarily: Digestive efficiency is sometimes difficult to quantify. Bcaa aren't bad if you can afford them. Most likely you have an intolerance to one of the components, much like many people do who take larger quantities of l-arginine. Sometimes adding a digestive enzyme complex with your meals and supplements helps with better assimilation. ...Read more

I've had two bowel movements today. In each instance, the stool looked normal but there was a bluish-green quality to the water near the feces. Help.

Stool: If the stools were perfectly normal in color and consistency, it doesn't appear that the pigment in the toilet water indicates a bowel abnormality. If further bowel movements appear abnormal, consult your physician who can inspect and test the stool for hidden blood. I feel that the pigment in the toilet water was some extraneous pigment. ...Read more

Lately I have had to push to get a bowel movement started. Can forcing cause the colon to get irritated so blood appears on feces? Can it be hemmoroid

Hemorrhoids or not?: Bleeding from the rectum that recurs may also indicate anal fissures, proctitis (due to infection, inflammatory bowel disease, radiation therapy, stercoral ulcers, rectal prolapse, trauma, etc.) or a bleeding source further upstream. Depending on your age, risk factors, current medication (aspirin, nsaid's, anticoagulants can cause bleeding), get evaluated sooner than later. ...Read more

Feces were leaking out of anus after incomplete bowel movement (all of it didn't come out), makes anus itch, what can improve fecal leakage ?

Constipation: If you have incomplete bowel movement and have anal leakage, you are possibly having constipation. Your bowel habits need to be addressed so that you can have complete bowel movement. Start with high fiber diet, citrucel daily (titrate to goal of 25-30 grams per day), exercise, and adequate hydration. If not help, add MiraLAX (polyethylene glycol) 1 tablespoon/8oz of water, drink daily (can have up to 2/day). ...Read more

MD: Hey luis, black stools could mean there is or was some bleeding in the upper GI tract but other things can do it too (like taking pepto bismol). Most GI bleeding stops on its own but should be evaluated. See your doc to check if there is blood in the stool. He/she will take it from there. If you feel very ill or have significant bleeding, go to the hospital, k? ...Read more

Why do people vomit with a bowel obstruction?

Why do people vomit with a bowel obstruction?

Blocked pipes: The stomach and small bowel secrete gallons of fluid every day that is reabsorbed, aiding nutrient absorption. If the small intestine is obstructed, this fluid upstream from the blockage accumulates and, left with no place to go, backs up into the stomach.. Also, we all swallow air--this furthers the upstream distention. A key sign of successful resolution is gas +/- stool out the bottom. ...Read more
