Bristol Stool Scale

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Jump to: navigation, search


The Bristol Stool Scale or Bristol Stool Chart is a medical aid designed to classify the faeces form into seven groups. It was developed by Heaton and Lewis at the University of Bristol and was first published in the journal Scand J Gastroenterol in 1997. Because the form of the stool depends on the time it spends in the colon, there is a correlation between the colonic transit time and the stool type.


The seven types of stool are:


* Type 1: Separate hard lumps, like nuts (hard to pass)

* Type 2: Sausage-shaped, but lumpy

* Type 3: Like a sausage but with cracks on its surface

* Type 4: Like a sausage or snake, smooth and soft

* Type 5: Soft blobs with clear cut edges (passed easily)

* Type 6: Fluffy pieces with ragged edges, a mushy stool

* Type 7: Watery, no solid pieces (entirely liquid)


Types 1 and 2 indicate constipation, with 3 and 4 being the "ideal stools" especially the latter, as they are the easiest to pass. 5-7 being further tending towards diarrhoea.

They actually have real scientific classifications of shits. I do gotta admit, those Type 5 shits are great. They come out easy, and dont leave shit stains on the toilet paper. I been doing alot of those, ever since I started eating right. (fiber helps, too)
