A stool analysis for color and texture variations as well as microbial content, is important for the detection and/or confirmation of several diseases. However, in most cases, such variations are simply due to dietary changes, and may not be a cause for concern.
Yellow Gilbert's syndrome, malabsorption, giardiasis, and pancreatic cancer Gilbert's syndrome leads to poor processing of red blood cells; undigested fat mixes with stool in case of malabsorption of fats; a parasitic infection called giardiasis can cause yellow stool color and diarrhea
If you are suffering from constipation, immediately begin the diet of raw vegetables and fresh fruits. As fruits and vegetables are a good source of dietary fiber, you can rest assured that it soften the stool and help in hydrating your body. Include fruits such as prunes, pears, blueberries, lemon, guava, apples, strawberries, oranges, grapes, figs, papaya, pineapple, peaches, and apricots. As for vegetables, eat Brussels sprouts, broccoli, cabbage, corn, potatoes, celery, lettuce, peas, green turnips, and carrots.
It is seen that stool softeners are used in the long term treatment of constipation. The dose of the softeners given to the patient depends on his condition. In some cases, the dosage may have to be increased as well. However, it does not mean, that they should be consumed everyday. Once the problem is solved, the patient should go off the stool softeners. Absorption of mineral oil and some medications from the intestine is observed, when one consumes emollient laxatives. Absorption of mineral oil is not healthy for the body, as it can accumulate in the lymph nodes and liver, where it can give rise to inflammation. It is important that a stool softener is also not consumed with mineral oil or also with other prescription medications.
