YOU SHOULDN’T IGNORE
One of the key signs that you have a healthy digestive system is that it’s not causing you any problems. However, if any of the following issues are a common occurrence, speak to your GP.
1 Burning sensation in your throat after eating might be acid reflux
2 Regular straining may indicate that you have constipation
3 Bad breath could be a symptom pointing to chronic reflux
4 Pain when pooing could signal constipation, haemorrhoids or even something more serious
5 Sudden change to bowel habits such as hard/lumpy stools or watery/mushy stools could be a sign of IBS
6Excessive gas and cramps may be related to IBS
7Sharp abdominal pain on the left side could be symptomatic of diverticulitis
8Frequent bloating or discomfort could be a sign you are constipated or have IBS
9 Offensive smell could be a sign that your food is not being absorbed adequately (eg, lactose intolerance) or indicate infection
10 Blood in the toilet could be colon cancer or haemorrhoids. See your GP immediately if you notice blood in your stool.
Plenty of water & exercise keeps you regular
