Website to help poor bowel control
The University Health System launched a new website, UCanPoopToo.com, last month which aims to help children who suffer from encopresis - a lack of control of bowel movements.
UCanPoopToo.com offers a customized program which allows paying users to type in their symptoms and bowel movements to obtain specific advice about how to best handle their encopresis.
The website also contains success stories, explanations about the causes of encopresis and core lessons about how children can learn to manage the disease.
The program is designed for a young audience, and includes animations, color and cartoons.
