Urine/Stool color and texture as "indicators"
« on: February 16, 2007, 09:12:23 AM »
I know this isn't something you can analyze your health with, but I have always found it interesting.  Anyway, I found one chart on stool color/texture and one on urine color at a Mayo Clinic link that talk about how it may relate to various health issues. I tried to post the stool stuff, but it was in chart form and I couldn't get it to work.  Here's the link for stool:

The Mayo Clinic link for Urine:

Can I just say that I am SO glad that someone out there analyzes poo and pee?!  I am constantly talking about this with my husband, and I know better than to begin the conversation with anyone else because folks don't care about what they're putting into their bodies, much less what's coming out.  Kati*did, you really are a kindred spirit!!!   :-*
That's Shabby SHEIK not Shabby CHICK.  Hee-hee.

ROTFL!!  The thing I'm concerned about is that the last dear friend who told me I was a kindred spirit said it for the very same reason... hmmm.   ;D ;D ;D

Is that little smiley circling his ear with is finger?  I don't think I've seen anyone do that since 1992.  Makes me want to break out my acid wash jeans, tight roll them, and watch "Saved by the Bell."   ;D

Hey thank you for making this thread katie*did. Just yday I was thinking about starting a poop color thread because my daughter had yet another one of her famous pretty green turds.  :o

 I give my kids mint flavored chlophill ( spelled wrong I think)drinks so this could by why she is having green turds. They are actualy kind of a pretty green. Ewwwwwwwwwww did I just say that? gag and barf.

The links are interresting.
