I know this is not about diabetes, but I wanted to ask something different this time. Ever since I became a vegetarian this year, I noticed that when I go to the restroom, and have a stool, there is no blood and it dosen't feel hard. Whenever I ate mean, I would have blood in my bottom from the stool. Has that ever happened to you? Why dose it make you do that? Or is that just saying that I have been eating meat for too loing? But the only meat products I would really eat were sausage, and a pepperoni pizza.

Howdy Carrie.

If the blood in the stool is red it indicates that you have a tear (fissure) in the anus area or that a hemorrhoid was irritated and bleeding. If comes out black and sticky like tar, that means a bleeder further up in the GI tract like from a bleeding ulcer.

Thanks for telling me that. I appreciate it.

Back to the question in the title: sometimes eating too much meat stops my GI tract up (constipation) and I sometimes strain to pass it. That could set off he hemmoroid or could even rip me a new fissure. (had them a lot when I was teens & 20s)

I grew up on a farm where we had our own beef and pork, so it was abundant for me at that time.
