Chris C. :

Hello! I will be assisting you today. Do you ever have any anal leakage? Do you have normal bowel movements and what color are they?

Chris C. :

Can you see my reply?

Customer:

It feels like I have leakage but I can't really find much when I wipe and what I do find seems clear. I seem to have diahreaa a lot

Chris C. :

What type of diet do you have? (What type of foods?)

Customer:

Its an ok diet not consistently healthy I eat some junk food

Customer:

some fast food

Chris C. :

Do you eat a lot of fatty food?

Customer:

ya

Chris C. :

That is one of the most common causes of this feeling. The fatty food causes an increase of mucus and fluid in the stool and causes diarrhea with a sense of urgency/leakage.

Customer:

ya it seems in the morning I tend to feel it the most like I have to go to the bathroom

Chris C. :

A diet lower in fatty foods (especially fast food like Mc Donalds) and an increase in fiber eith through eating more fruits, vegetables, salads, etc. or adding a fiber supplement like metamucil.

Chris C. :

This will cause more consistent stools that are properly formed and not loose.

Customer:

what about grains should I avoid those do you think?

Chris C. :

No you were tested for celiac and were negative so there is no reason to avoid grains.

Customer:

ok, well I'll give that a try, thanks for your input and help

Chris C. :

You are very welcome! Thanks for your question. Please rate before you leave so I get credit for my time.

I can go as far as to say it could have resulted in saving my sons life and our entire family now knows what bipolar is and how to assist and understand my most wonderful son, brother and friend to all who loves him dearly. Thank you very much

Corrie MollPretoria, South Africa

I thank-you so much! It really helped to have this information and confirmation. We will watch her carefully and get her in for the examination and US right away if things do not improve. God bless you as well!

ClaudiaAlbuquerque, NM

KevinBeaverton, OR

Suggested diagnosis was what I hoped and will take this info to my doctor's appointment next week.
I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.

John and StefanieTucson, AZ

I have been dealing with an extremely serious health crisis for over three years, and one your physicians asked me more questions, gave me more answers and encouragement than a dozen different doctors who have been treating me!!
