    What should your pee look like?

    Normal pee should be the colour of straw. If your pee is so colourless that it looks like water, you probably drank more than you needed.

    Very dark yellow pee usually means you are a bit dehydrated and need to drink more water.

    Pee the colour of syrup or molasses needs medical investigation. While it could be due to extreme dehydration, it can be a sign of liver diseases such as hepatitis and cirrhosis, where a build up of bilirubin spills into your pee. Bilirubin is a breakdown product of red blood cells; it’s also responsible for poo’s normal brown colour.

    Poo colours of the rainbow
    Normal poo colour ranges from light yellow to brown to black. The colour is due to a mix of bile, which starts off green in the gall bladder, and bilirubin a yellow breakdown product from red blood cells.

    Poo can turn green after consuming food and drink containing blue or green food colouring, or if food travels too fast through the gut and some bile is still present.

    Poo that is yellow, greasy and smells really bad signals food malabsorption. If this colour is associated with weight loss in an adult or poor growth in a child, see a doctor to rule out gut infections such as giardia or medical conditions like coeliac disease.

    Very pale or clay-coloured poo can happen when taking some anti-diarrhoeal medications, or when digestive problems affect the liver, gut, pancreas or gall bladder.

    At the other extreme of the colour spectrum, black poo could be a serious medical issue due to bleeding in the stomach or upper gut. Or it could be a harmless side-effect from taking iron supplements, or eating lots of licorice.

    Red poo can also be a serious medical issue due to bleeding in the lower gut, or from haemorrhoids, or harmless after having large amounts of red food colouring.

    If you don’t know what colour your pee or poo is, take a look. If you see a colour that’s out of the ordinary and you haven’t eaten anything unusual, take a picture and make an appointment to show your GP.

    What's for breakfast?

    Very Informative. I like to poke my poo with a stick and break it up to see what it looks like on the inside. Do you have any information on that? I also notice that the smell of poo often changes. I'd like to see you cover that in future installments.

    I am dropping a 7 as we speak.

    I hardly ate anything yesterday. Turkey on wheat, handful of cashews, 1 plain cheese taco.


    I haven't seen a 2 since I was a kid.

    What about a loaf of shit that starts off as one color and changes color midway through ? Like a 50/50 bar
    I've seen that plenty of times.

    Before my colonoscopy my doctor gave me a chart like this and told me to choose the poo that best describes what the bowl looks like when I'm done. I think I'm still blushing. I just pointed at one and asked to be sedated STAT.
