What Causes Acetone Odor In Stool and How to Fix it?

Ill digestion is the major cause of the problem you now experience in gut movement.

Frequent bowel movements can well cause breakage in gut integrity which then leads to bleeding eventually.

I recommend doing the following things:

  • Use ample fluids.
  • Use high fiber diets especially the whole wheat products you can even use organic fiber supplements.
  • Eat or drink vegetables.
  • For now, don’t use any meds wait for 2..3 days to see how it responds.
  • Consume less meat.
  • Avoid smoking..fizzy drinks.. alcohol and coffee caffeine.

In my opinion, things are expected to get better soon.
