Doctor insights on:
Why Is My Poo Always Runny
Many reasons: There are many reasons why your stool can be runny. Medications and supplements that you are taking can be one. Your diet too can highly influence the consistency of your stool; if you are taking too much fiber or prunes. Less common causes would be infection and certain medical conditions which your doctor can check for.See 1 more doctor answer
Chronic diarrhea: Of several months duration warrants medical evaluation.
Need evaluation: Could be hemorrhoids with mucus discharge but chronic loose stool could imply an inflammatory process.
Diarrhea: Chronic diarrhea should be evaluated as to cause especially infection. It's common after bowel resection and gall bladder surgery. Antibiotics can actually lead to bacterial overgrowth & thus diarrhea which is treated w/yet another antibiotic. But only way to figure all this out is to go see your doctor. Also need to monitor hydration & fluid balance so you're not dehydrated.
Yellow stool: The amount, color, frequency of stool varies with foods, speed of emptying of the GI tract, medications & supplements ingested, gut flora (unique for each individual), additives (like blood), subtractions (like absent bile), infection, inflammation, & other factors. If stool pattern has changed, is unusual for you, & the change persists, or is accompanied by other symptoms, see your doctor.
Stool color: When intestinal contents have more rapid transit through the intestinal tract, feces become loose and may have tan color rather than normal form and brown color. The older feces had time to pigment, but the looser portion didn't. If yellow loose stool persists with or without diarrhea, bile tract or pancreatic disorders or malabsorption should be considered.
My 5 month old has been doing solid pops he is eating puréed not sure is it normal for him to poo hard he does runny ones also?
Sounds Normal: Kid's poop can get harder as you switch to solids (pureed). Try adding some pureed prunes or apples. Also make sure he is taking in adequate fluids daily.
15 mnth old with very soft poo her entire life. Not runny just soft and mushy. It is 2x a day and normal color. Never a solid log or mass. Normal?
Lots possible at 50: "plugging up" diarrhea will not cure an infection, fix an inflammatory process, improve an ischemic gut, or correct a functional issue. Medical evaluation is recommended appropriate to the duration of your symptoms, associations (bleeding, weight loss, pain, vomiting), as well as your other medical co-morbidities. Call your doctor please and get checked.
Test: None of us here would venture a guess. Your stool needs testing for infectious causes and your doctor can work with you on other possibilities.
Bloody poo: You may have a rectalmgissure that is causing your bloody poo. But there many other causes for bloody poo, that's whybits importsnt for you to mske an appointment with your doctor for evaluation and treatment.
Baby has a breath that smells like poo and the poo is very runny and has been sick and is 5 months old?
See the doctor: This has to be treated, your baby may have a gastrointestinal infection or a food intolerance. See the pediatrician.
My 8 week old son keeps crying all day after feeds he has runny dark green poo, vomits a bit after every feed! Appears to be in constant pain b?
More info needed: If this just started happening perhaps a stomach bug. If it has been ongoing and getting worse perhaps a food intolerance. If u are breastfeeding millk chocolate, peanuts, eggs, tomatoes are common offenders if bottle fed. Perhaps lactose or milk protein sensitivity. Talk to ur dr about this.See 1 more doctor answer
My 2month baby girl has green runny smelly poo. Changed formula from non-HA to HA (partially hydrolysed) formula (NAN HA GOLD BRAND). Is this normal?
Growth?: Green poop is normal for babies. Smelly poop is normal for babies. Runny stool may be within normal limits as well. I am not familiar with the brand of formula you mention here. Definitely ask about babys stools and nutriton at her 2 month checkup. Is she growing well? How many ounces does she take? Does she spit up? Any blood in her stools? Any exposures to pets? Any travel? Need more info!
Probably IBS: Sounds like irritable bowel syndrome. Very common in young people your age. Might want to consult your doctor during your next visit to see what can be done.
