Discoloration of stool is not always a subject of concern. However, in some cases, knowing stool color meanings comes handy as a simple way to diagnose specific health conditions. Of course, it is not the sole method for identifying medical problems. The doctor will perform diagnostic procedures to confirm, whether the individual is actually having the predicted condition or not.
Constipation is a common health problem that can affect people of all age groups. It is characterized by difficult and infrequent evacuation of bowels. One of the common symptoms of this condition is passing dry and hard stools. If the stools have become very hard and dry, it may cause injury to the anus and the rectum. In severe cases, it can also lead to bleeding. The use of natural stool softeners can certainly prove beneficial in case of pregnant women.
Celiac disease is caused due to gluten or wheat intolerance in which the lining of the small intestinal tract cannot tolerate the presence of gluten, hence digestion gets severely affected. This, in turn leads to diarrhea -- stool that has a greenish-blue color which also smells nasty.
Passing green stool may point towards an unhealthy diet, stress, or medical conditions that might be affecting the body. Most often, the condition is a repercussion of ingesting certain foods. Green vegetables are known to be a common cause of green-hued feces. The same may occur post consuming medications or supplements. In some cases, green stool may indicate the presence of an infection in older kids and adults.
