Dr Oz: What Are the Signs of Constipation?
Dr. Oz chose his Assistant of the Day to help with the demonstration fans most wanted to see. It probably will not surprise you to hear that the majority voted for a poop demonstration. Dr. Oz’s fans must know just how much Dr. Oz loves this subject, right? He started by showing everyone a “Poop Chart” with various looking types of poop and then moved on to explaining the reason for each one.
Small round “nuggets”: This type of poop occurs because you are straining too hard due to being constipated.
Runny, watery poop: Dr. Oz says this is sign your digestion is happening too quickly and no nutrients are getting absorbed by the body, which is a problem.
Perfectly solid, “S-Shaped” poop: Dr. Oz says this is ideally what your poop should like when you go to the bathroom because it is a sign of a good diet.
Dr Oz: Foods High in Fiber
Dr. Oz says your goal should be to poop once a day and the key to making that happen is a diet high in fiber from foods like vegetables, whole grains and fruit. Here are some good examples to help you get 30 grams of fiber every day:
- 100% Vegetable Juice
- Brown Rice
Dr. Oz says drinking a lot of water is also very important to helping you achieve at least one poop per day.
Dr Oz: What Your Poop Color Reveals About Your Health
Dr. Oz says the color of your poop can also say a lot about your health. Surprisingly many people do not know what to look for when they flush the toilet.
Brown: This is the most common and “perfect” color for a person’s poop.
Green(ish): Dr. Oz says green poop is a sign your body did not process what you ate as good as it could have and could be a sign of Crohn’s Disease or that you ate leafy greens or something with food coloring.
Yellow Poop: This happens when your liver is not working properly and could be a sign of Gallbladder Disease or that you have a problem digesting wheat.
White Poop: This means there is no fat being digested and could be a sign of Pancreatic Cancer or from taking certain supplements.
Dr Oz: When to Worry About the Color of Your Poop
Dr. Oz says you really should not be concerned about the color of your poop unless it lasts for longer than a few days because it could be a sign of a serious health problem. He warned there are two instances when you should call the doctor immediately and they are:
Red Poop: This could just be a sign of Hemorrhoids, but it could also be a sign of something more serious.
Black Poop: This could mean you have a stomach bleed which can be very dangerous for your health.
Dr Oz: What Causes Poop Skid Marks in the Toilet?
Dr. Oz says if there is a mark in the toilet from your poop after you flush it is a sign your stool is a little too loose, so add some more fiber to your diet to help get a more solid poop in the future.
