Bristol stool chart

Is your digestive health in top condition? Use this Bristol Stool Chart to help determine your intestinal health.

The consistency of our poo depends on how long it has spent in the colon. The longer it spends 'in transit', the more liquid is absorbed by the colon. This chart is a general guide.

  • Types 1 and 2 indicate constipation.
  • Types 3 and 4 are the easiest to pass.
  • Types 5 and 6 may indicate diarrhoea.
  • Type 7 may be a sign of illness, for example food poisoning
