World Continence Week 2023: What's Your Number?

This year, World Continence Week runs from 1925 June 2023, and we’re focusing on healthy bowels for all by helping you answer the question...

...What's Your Number?

Let's face it – bowel health is a tricky topic! Luckily, Jason Gunn is here to help get the conversation going. In a special video message, the much-loved Kiwi personality talks about the importance of understanding what is "normal" and "healthy" when it comes to our bowels, and encourages you to check before you flush: "...How it looks on the outside says a lot about how we're doing on the inside".

In order to keep your bowel healthy, it is important to understand what's normal – not only what's typically "normal" for most people, but also what's "normal" for YOU individually. The Bristol Stool Chart is a tool that describes the different shapes and types of stools, helping to identify issues such as diarrhoea and constipation. 

Jason urges you to view our Stool Chart to find out what YOUR number is, and if your bowel is healthy! If you need more support and advice around your bowel health, feel free to call us. Here's OUR number... 0800 650 659.
