Stringy Stools?

Answer

Stringy stools can be caused by a number of conditions. Some possibilities are undigested food, sloughing of the mucosal intestinal lining, Crohn's disease, ulcerative colitis, and inflammatory bowel disease. All of the conditions are treatable but it is important to get the correct diagnosis. If the stringy stools are caused by ulcerative colitis, inflammatory bowel disease, or Crohn's disease, damage can worsen over time so it's important to have the problem evaluated and treated by a doctor.
