Yes it does in mine. If I drink a lot then the output is more watery as ileum doesn't remove all the fluid like the colon does. If don't drink enough then output is much thicker, like if I get dehydrated. Also depends what I drink, for some reason tomato juice goes shooting right through me in about 20 minutes, quite impressive really!
