Nothing: I am a lab specialist. They are useful but it is of great importance that people not over interpret them.

Cal protection is just a helper and not very sensitive or specific for anything ...Read more

I've been stooling for the past 2 days very regularly. Should I get a check up or will this just pass by?
It depends...: I assume you mean that you are having diarrhea, or loose stools.

If you are having high fevers, bloody diarrhea, persistent vomiting, or any other concerns, you should see a doctor. ...Read more
