Why track your bowel movements?
Tracking bowel movements can be a useful tool to gauge your stool health over time and potentially uncover any chronic problems you might have such as: IBS (Irritable bowel syndrome), Crohn's disease, Colitis, Celiac disease, and more by noticing patterns and irregularities in your stool that you may not have noticed otherwise. This can also help you figure out whether your diet is causing problems with your poop schedule, consistency, or urgency.
Those who already suffer from chronic conditions such as IBS, Crohn's disease, Colitis, Celiac, etc can also benefit from tracking their bowel movements as it can help to monitor the severity of their symptoms and progression of these life altering diseases over time.
About the Bristol Stool Scale:
The Bristol stool scale, or BSF scale is a diagnostic medical tool designed to classify the form of human stool into seven categories. It is used in both clinical and experimental fields. It is sometimes referred to in the UK as the Meyers scale.
Constipation refers to bowel movements that are infrequent or hard to pass. The content is often hard and dry. Other symptoms may include abdominal pain, bloating, and feeling as if one has not completely passed the stool.
Constipation has many causes. Common causes include slow movement of stool within the colon, IB, and pelvic floor disorders. Underlying associated diseases include hypothyroidism, diabetes, Parkinson's disease, celiac disease, non-celiac gluten sensitivity, colon cancer, diverticulitis, and inflammatory bowel disease.
Diarrhea, also spelled diarrhoea, is the condition of having at least three loose or liquid stools each day. It often lasts for a few days and can result in dehydration due to fluid loss.
The most common cause is an infection of the intestines due to either a virus, bacteria, or parasite; a condition known as gastroenteritis. These infections are often acquired from food or water that has been contaminated. It may be divided into three types: short duration watery diarrhea, short duration bloody diarrhea, and if it lasts for more than two weeks, persistent diarrhea.
