What It Is:
How It Works:
When you have a bowel movement, you add a new entry to the log. You input the date and time, the Bristol Rating (the explanation is directly in the tool so you don't need to be familiar with it), if the evacuation was incomplete, or if there was seepage or any urgency. There is also a notation area for you to add any other comments you might have, or associated symptoms.
From the entries page you also have the option of emailing your log in a simple .txt format. This file could be printed, imported into a spreadsheet, or even emailed directly to your physician.
When you choose to analyze your stool entries, you view a bar graph that charts the Bristol Rating of each entry. This should quickly show you if most of your stools trend to a particular type on the scale.
