A while ago I had a little bright red blood that showed up on my toilet paper.

I'm an 18 year old male and have just had a spurt of <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>blood</span> and mucus <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> my stool.

A floating stool may be a symptom of a more serious problem but more than likely it is because you are eating too many fatty foods <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> your diet. increased levels of nutrients <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> the stool are supplied to the normal bacteria that live in the gut, which in turn produce more gas. This results in more gas-rich stools that float. Lower the fat content of your food and should result in stool that sinks. I recommend the ultrasound right away.
