I Have Deer Poop

Published: March 01, 2014
Dear TeenHealthFX,

I had read a question similar to my own on here but it didn't exactly pertain to me. I have like deer poop? It comes out as little pellets and like a lot of them. I don't think I'm constipated because I go regularly. I recently moved to Hawaii a little over a month and a half ago, that being said, it's super humid and hot so I've been drinking water constantly. The Café on campus has a fruit and salad bar for every meal and all the fruits are my favorite kind (watermelon, pineapple, grapes, and occasionally oranges) and I eat a lot of it after every meal. I don't eat breakfast though because I feel sick afterwards (I think it's just too early to eat), but I eat lunch and dinner everyday. The question that was answered had said that the person was constipated, didn't drink enough water, and needed to eat more fruit. I do all of these things and I still have deer poop (or as the other person called it, "rabbit poo"). I don't think its because of the climate change or anything like that because I've been like this for a little over 4 years. I'm not really concerned that it is bad, I just want to know why?

Dear I Have Deer Poop,

Not drinking enough water or having enough fruit in your diet was 2 possibilities that caused constipation. There can be many other factors including skipping meals. Passing over breakfast may have something to do with it.

We are going to also recommend that you see your doctor regarding your stools. Even though it is not causing you any discomfort it is a good idea to be on the safe side.
