When to See a Doctor 

Your poop can tell you a lot about your health, but sometimes changes in bowel movements can mean something more serious. While most changes are nothing to worry about, it’s important to know when to seek medical attention. In some cases, persistent changes in poop consistency, color, and odor may indicate the presence of chronic conditions or rare medical conditions that require treatment.

Some health conditions that can cause changes in poop include Crohn’s disease, ulcerative colitis, and colon cancer. These diseases and conditions can cause symptoms such as abdominal pain, diarrhea, blood in the stool, and weight loss.

Additionally, if you notice persistent changes in your bowel movements that last for more than a few days without explanation, it’s important to seek medical attention. This is particularly true if you experience pain or discomfort during bowel movements or notice blood in your stool. Remember that taking care of your digestive health is an important part of overall wellness. By paying attention to your bowel movements and seeking medical attention when necessary, you can ensure that you catch any potential health problems early on and get the treatment you need to stay healthy.
