Hello Candra Mulyana, thank you for your question to HealthReplies.com.
Complaints that you experience can be caused by several things. Any changes in bowel movements (BAB), such as changes in frequency, consistency and color in the stool can indicate certain conditions in our digestive tract. So these changes must be examined further.
If someone has a complaint of liquid bowel movements, it cannot be said immediately that the person has diarrhea. The easy classification is that a person is said to have diarrhea if he experiences bowel movements with a liquid consistency of more than 3 times a day. If liquid stool only happens once, then maybe it is caused by a mild reaction of the digestive tract to the food eaten.
In your condition, liquid and foamy bowel movements can be experienced due to the high content of fat or mucus in the stool or it can also be caused by inflammation of the digestive tract. Also worth noting about your complaint is there are other complaints such as abdominal pain, fever, nausea, vomiting, and whether the complaint is felt to be continuous or only occurs once, so, you need to observe again when you defecate whether the complaint still exists or has improved . Some things that can be the cause of foaming CHAPTER for example:
Food poisoning, for example due to consumption of food with less hygiene or contaminated with bacteria or poisons. In conditions of food poisoning, symptoms can also be accompanied by pain / stomach cramps, nausea, and vomiting.
Too much fat intake and digestion of fat is not perfect. There are also conditions that cause impaired absorption of fat in the intestine due to certain diseases, such as inflammation of the pancreatic organs (pancreatitis).
Bacterial infection of the digestive tract. Infection with certain bacteria can cause slimy or foul-smelling bowel movements. Even in dysentery diarrhea, germs can cause bowel movements accompanied by blood.
Inflammation of the intestine. Inflammatory bowel disease can cause interference with the process of absorption in the intestine, so that a person can experience liquid bowel movements, and interference with fat absorption can cause foaming and sour smell.
For complaints of difficult urination that you experience, it needs to be explored further whether the perceived complaint is difficult to start urinating, intermittent urination, or urine does not come out / pee out but very little. In addition, it should be noted also other symptoms that you feel such as the color of pee, is there blood coming out, pain when urinating, fever, and so forth. There are several things that can cause complaints of difficulty urinating, for example:
Urinary tract infections, which occur good bacterial infections in the lower urinary tract such as the bladder or even the kidneys. This can cause pain during urinating, pain in the lower abdomen and / or waist, feelings of wanting to urinate but urine comes out little by little, changes in the color of urine (becoming more concentrated / cloudy / bleeding), and even fever can occur. or nausea.
Urinary tract stones. Other conditions that can cause difficult BAK is a blockage in the urethra, for example due to stones. Usually the formation of stones is caused by lack of fluid intake or consumption of excessive urinary tract-forming materials (eg frequent consumption of foods that increase uric acid levels)
Kidney illness. Kidney disease itself can be caused by many things, for example infections of the kidneys, kidney stones, acute kidney failure (for example due to dehydration), or chronic kidney disease. Patients can experience a decrease in the number and frequency of urination, low back pain, swelling in some parts of the body, shortness of breath, and so forth.
Prostate disease, both benign prostate enlargement and prostate cancer. Usually people with prostate disease often experience complaints that it is difficult to start urinating, must straining to pass urine, weak urine emission, feeling of not hanging after urinating, and often waking up to urinate at night. Increased risk of disease at the age of> 50 years (very small possibility for you because you are still young)
and so forth
My advice, keep your digestive and urinary tract health, and watch for other symptoms that you experience. If complaints are felt to be persistent, or you experience ongoing diarrhea, bowel movements, nausea, excessive vomiting, abdominal pain, fever, or other symptoms that are very disturbing, immediately consult your doctor or nearest health facility. The doctor will ask further about the complaint you feel and will do a complete physical examination to identify the problem. If needed, the doctor can also perform additional supporting examinations such as blood tests, examination of stool / feces, urine tests, and so forth.
In the meantime, you should:
Keep your food and drinks clean, as well as hand washing must be done before eating and after using the toilet
eat nutritious foods (multiply vegetables and fruit) and avoid foods that can irritate the digestive tract, for example too acidic, spicy, fatty, and soft drinks
drink a minimum of 8 glasses of water per day (2 liters)
avoid the habit of holding bowel or bladder
exercise regularly, 3-5 times a week with a minimum duration of 30 minutes each time you exercise
adequate rest, sleep at least 6-8 hours per day.
That's all, hopefully it's useful and I hope you are always healthy.
