Mucus in the stool is a common symptom of some digestive conditions. Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) and ulcerative colitis (one form of inflammatory bowel disease, or IBD) can cause it. 1 So can bacterial infections, anal tears or fissures, a bowel obstruction, or Crohn’s disease (the second main form of IBD).
Simply so, can you poop mucus?
You may think of mucus as the slimy stuff you cough up when you’re sick. But it can also show up at the other end: in your poop. Many parts of your body make mucus, including your intestines.
Beside above, what food causes mucus in stool?
Food intolerances and allergies to food containing lactose, fructose, sucrose, or gluten, for example, can cause inflammation of the intestinal walls. This can increase mucus production, which will cause mucus to be seen in the stools.
