Bowel and stool disorders such as blood in stool, diarrhoea, constipation and stool incontinence are sometimes caused by serious conditions like colon cancer and inflammatory bowel disease (IBD).
However, more commonly, they can be caused by intestinal infections or structural problems like haemorrhoids and diverticular disease, as well as digestive function disorders like malabsorption, irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) and pelvic floor disorder.
Personalised care for your digestive, bowel and liver health
The management of bowel and stool disorders involves excluding serious conditions, treating the underlying disease and controlling symptoms. This may require investigations, which include a colonoscopy and scans of the digestive organs.
In severe cases, evaluations such as hydrogen breath tests and gastrointestinal mobility tests may help guide treatment. Finally, when there is severe malabsorption and malnutrition, nutrition support is crucial.
We offer a comprehensive service including:
Colonoscopy and polypectomy
Hydrogen breath test
Gastrointestinal motility capsule
Parental and enteral nutrition support
