12 Things Your Stool Says About Your Health
5 Types Of Diarrhea That You Need To Know About
No matter what, diarrhea is pretty crappy. (No pun intended.) But, it also turns out that not all diarrhea is the same.
Just like there are lots of types of poop, there are lots of types of diarrhea. And each one says something very specific about your health.
That's why, when you visit a doctor with a case of tummy troubles, they’re going to ask a few questions to try to suss out which type of diarrhea that you’re experiencing, says Rudolph Bedford, MD, a gastroenterologist at Providence Saint John's Health Center in Santa Monica, California. By determining the exact type of diarrhea that you have, your MD will be able to more quickly and easily pinpoint the cause and, most importantly, put an end to your gastro woes.
While acute diarrhea (a lose stool here or there) is incredibly common and no real biggie, if your diarrhea lasts for more than a few days, it's important to make an appointment with your doctor. Chronic diarrhea that lasts for four weeks or more can be a sign of an underlying health issue. Meanwhile, if you also have a fever of 102 or higher, are experiencing severe pain, or think that you might be dehydrated, calling the doc is never a bad idea. (Kick-start your new, healthy routine with the brand-new !)
So, if you're dealing with your own case of the big D, plug your nose and take a look into the toilet. What you see may be your key to getting out of the bathroom for a change.

The interior design of the store still feels cool and there is some great artwork and decor on display. But the prices are expensive and the clothing seems dated. We probably wouldnt buy anything here unless there was a big sale
