11 Things Your Poop Reveals About Your Health And You Need To Take Note
9Cracked sausage shaped
This means your stool is normal and you are just fine although it wouldn’t hurt to start drinking more water. The perfect looking stool is a soft sausage shape and smooth. Maintain your diet and avoid stress to keep your health the way it is.
When your stool looks like soft lumps with clear edges, it could indicate light diarrhea or a sign of irritable bowel syndrome. Start eating foods low in fiber such as bananas, potatoes and crackers.
If your stool appears fluffy and has ragged edges, then it could also mean mild diarrhea and there is an excess of fiber in your diet. Drink more water to avoid dehydration and eat foods like boiled potatoes and bananas. It would be advisable to take some OTC medication like Pepto Bismol on doctor’s advice and if this continues for more than 2 days, consult a doctor.
12Liquid without solid pieces
If you have liquid stool and no solid pieces, it is a clear indication of diarrhea and could indicate food poisoning, lactose intolerance or bacterial infection. Keep yourself well hydrated and consult a doctor for suitable medication. Eat probiotic foods or supplements.
