Today’s article comes from a client who asks a really great question. When it comes to toilet habits, it’s not a favorite topic discussed and it can easily clear a room, get some interesting facial expression, funny comments or even a wise crack or two. Anything about the health of our body is an important topic and should never bring embarrassment or shame, even bodily oozes and emissions.
I did some research on the topic of skid marks in men’s pants. There is a couple of things to consider. Women do deal with this too. However, if it’s a cleanliness thing, women tend to be more conscientiousness about their bodily cleanliness.
1. They are not eating enough fiber and are eating something that causes their poop to be sticky
2. They are not using good hygiene.
3. Some of their poop is getting caught just inside the inner sphincter and it releases and dribbles with the days activity.
The chart to your right will help you discern a normal healthy poop. There are also a few solutions to consider if you aren’t looking at a major problem.
- change diet, eat more fiber and get rid of inflammatory foods that cause sticky poop. Poops can be a sign of health or a medical problem.
- Wipe! Men don’t like to admit this, but many do not wipe after a poop.
- Use a wipey after using toilet paper, reaching slightly inside to get what’s hanging around for a later emergence.
It’s up for each individual to decide for themselves which 1 or if all reasons apply and make the changes needed. There may be other reasons as well. Without knowing the surrounding circumstances, it would be hard for me to pin point. In that case, a consultation appointment can be made with me for my insights and help.
What You See in the Toilet Can Give You Valuable Insights into Your Health
|Healthy Stool||Unhealthy Stool|
|Medium to light brown||Stool that is hard to pass, painful, or requires straining|
|Smooth and soft, formed into one long shape and not a bunch of pieces||Hard lumps and pieces, or mushy and watery, or even pasty and difficult to clean off|
|About one to two inches in diameter and up to 18 inches long||Narrow, pencil-like or ribbon-like stools: can indicate a bowel obstruction or tumor – or worst case, colon cancer; narrow stools on an infrequent basis are not so concerning, but if they persist, definitely warrant a call to your physician5|
|S-shaped, which comes from the shape of your lower intestine6||Black, tarry stools or bright red stools may indicate bleeding in the GI tract; black stools can also come from certain medications, supplements or consuming black licorice; if you have black, tarry stools, it’s best to be evaluated by your healthcare provider|
|Quiet and gentle dive into the water…it should fall into the bowl with the slightest little “whoosh” sound – not a loud, wet cannonball splash that leaves your toosh in need of a shower||White, pale or gray stools may indicate a lack of bile, which may suggest a serious problem (hepatitis,cirrhosis, pancreatic disorders, or possibly a blocked bile duct), so this warrants a call to your physician; antacids may also produce white stool|
|Natural smell, not repulsive (I’m not saying it will smell good)||Yellow stools may indicate giardiainfection, a gallbladder problem, or a condition known as Gilbert’s syndrome – if you see this, call your doctor|
|Uniform texture||Presence of undigested food (more of a concern if accompanied by diarrhea, weight loss, or other changes in bowel habits)|
|Sinks slowly||Floaters or splashers|
|Increased mucus in stool: This can be associated with inflammatory bowel disease like Crohn’s disease, or ulcerative colitis, or even colon cancer, especially if accompanied by blood or abdominal pain|
If you’re wondering about skid marks in the toilet bowl, they can be reduced by eating more good quality fiber in your diet. It happens when the poo’s have too much mucus in them, so they slide to the edge of the toilet. It’s recommended to reducing your intake of dairy and alcohol, and up your intake of foods higher in enzymes.
