Altered bowel habits
Altered bowel habits is a change in the frequency and/or consistency of your bowel movements.
Changes in diet, medication or minor flu bugs can bring on bowel changes. Temporary constipation or diarrhoea is usually nothing to worry about.
However if you notice a consistent change in your bowel habits or any blood when your bowels move you should see your GP for an examination and diagnosis.
Your liver is one of the largest organs in your body. It acts to process and remove toxins from drugs and substances that may harm your body. Your liver makes blood clotting factors, proteins, and enzymes, helps maintain hormone balances, and stores vitamins and minerals. Bile is transported through ducts directly or via the gall bladder to the small intestine to help you digest fats.
