Adult Bowel Problems

Adult Bowel Problems occur when any number of disorders, conditions, or lifestyle behaviours contribute to a bowel problem.

One of the easiest ways to identify a potential problem is with bowel habits.

If there is no bowel movement on a specific day or time of the day, there is a strong possibility that you have a problem.

If you are constipated, it could be that you need to take more fibre into your diet.

Some people have diarrhoea after taking an exercise supplement.

Inflammation and ulceration may be a sign that you should see a doctor.

Nerve damage may cause diarrhoea, stomach cramps, or stomach pain.

Some mild digestive problems are caused by medications.

The stool form a community of bacteria and yeast that live together, enabling them to interact.

Each person has their own composition of bacteria, although there is some variation.

As people age, they have decreased diversity of their community and tend to be more like the community of microbes in another animal's mouth or in a single person's gut.

A diet that is low in fibre and high in carbohydrate can lead to an imbalance in the population of healthy bacteria.

Scientists think this occurs when there is excessive use of antibiotics and that the overgrowth of "Clostridium difficile" bacteria (which usually do not harm humans) causes health problems.

A healthy diet can help improve this.

The composition of the gut flora can vary greatly, depending on diet and how often you drink water and what you eat.

When you defecate, you can absorb nutrients from your food.

It is possible to absorb only small amounts of the nutrients in the food they eat in some people.

This is called malabsorption.

Malabsorption is associated with diarrhoea, but it is also a severe problem for malnourished people.

When there is a problem with water supply and nutrients to the small intestine, diarrhoea occurs.

This usually is associated with dehydration.

Depression or stress can also play a role.

Digestive problems can cause many other issues, including:

Gastrointestinal problems can also be the result of a problem with the nervous system.

It is believed that chronic inflammation can affect nerves in the colon.

Several diseases affect the nerves that run through the colon.

Fibromyalgia, which causes pain throughout the body, is caused by nerve damage to the peripheral nervous system.

Inflammation, including infection, can affect nerves in the gut and also cause GI problems.

Some people are genetically predisposed to develop colitis.

While most people are born with no such condition, about 10% of people have some degree of colitis.

One theory is that certain types of bacteria can cause inflammation of the colon that causes pain and other symptoms.

The bacteria can build up because they lack the correct chemicals for them to thrive in the intestines.

Gastrointestinal problems may result from a problem with the skin.

The skin is filled with trillions of bacteria that help keep the skin healthy.

If your skin is damaged, it will often become inflamed.

Inflammation of the skin can cause inflammation in the intestines, which can cause diarrhoea.

Diarrhoea is the most common symptom of this condition.

Intestinal infections often come on suddenly, causing diarrhoea that lasts only a few days.

In severe cases, however, diarrhoea can last several weeks or months.

Diarrhoea can also be associated with an underlying condition such as inflammatory bowel disease, Crohn's disease, or ulcerative colitis.

Risk factors include smoking, lack of exercise, and a diet high in fat, sugar, and carbohydrates.

Heavy or prolonged-term use of antibiotics can also lead to diarrhoea, but not usually with this particular pattern of diarrhoea.

Outbreaks of diarrhoea may be more common in areas where food and water quality are lacking, particularly when travelling to a developing country.

Digestive problems associated with strep throat are not usually serious, and antibiotics may relieve the symptoms.

However, your children may end up in the hospital for an extended period if they become dehydrated.

If your child has diarrhoea for more than a few days, he or she should drink lots of liquids, including a mixture of sugar and water.

Grape juice and mineral water are suitable substitutes for fruit juice.

When your child has diarrhoea and is not urinating very much, he or she may have a condition called painful bloat.

It is a common problem in young children but can be very painful.

If the bloat is severe enough to interfere with your child's activities, it is a medical emergency.

In mild cases, your doctor may prescribe a painkiller or an antacid.

Adult Nappies can help.
