Signs of health problems can show up in many ways. Persistent fatigue, loss of appetite, and headaches are all obvious signs that something has possibly gone awry with your health. Another obvious factor is changes in your “elimination,” a.k.a your poo and pee. As awkward as this topic is, it’s very important that you pay attention when you use the restroom -especially if you’re not feeling well!
For example, blood in your poo or pee is a serious sign that you need to see a doctor ASAP. You should also never ignore pain or burning when urinating -as this could be a sign of an infection or STI. Another important factor to pay attention to is what you eat. For instance, beets and red juices can make your poo or pee turn red, so before you freak out, think back to what you consumed in the past 24 hours. If your poo or pee is still discolored after 24-48 hours, you should see a doctor.
Here’s a great guide to what you potty tells you about your body. Never ignore symptoms that something has gone awry with your health!
