Why is the intestinal mucosa expelled during stool?
Patients often ask doctors such questions, and they look very nervous. "Will you bring the excreted'intestinal mucosa' next time, please?" The doctor could only answer like this. It is better to see it after hearing it. The so-called "intestinal mucosa" is a mass of mucus, and the patient has a false alarm. Although "mucosa" and "mucus" are one word difference, they are two completely different things. Mucous membrane is a layer of tissue covering the surface of the lumen of the human body that communicates with the outside world. There are cell glands, blood vessels, etc.; mucus is a product secreted by the mucous membrane, just like the nasal mucosa is secreted by the nasal mucosa. In the case of inflammation, the intestine generally does not discharge the mucosa, but inflammation can stimulate the mucosa to secrete more mucus. Mucosa and mucus are distinguishable in appearance. The mucous membrane is a structured tissue, thin and flesh-colored. Careful observation can reveal the branch-like small blood vessels; the mucus is colorless and transparent, sometimes translucent like egg white, in piles or clusters, without tissue structure. In addition to inflammation of the intestines, there is also irritable bowel syndrome.
