I am 57 yrs m, diabetic for 20yrs, suffering wt.Loss, thyroid ths up, occult blood in stool let me know the cause of wt.Loss/occult blood.

It's my job to worry: Because I have to think, "what's the worst thing this could be?" i feel it's important to encourage you to see a gastroenterologist to find out where the blood in the stool is coming from. Bleeding from the bowel and weight loss can go along with cancer, so don't put this off. It sounds like your thyroid needs attention. If your TSH is high, your thyroid isn't putting out enough thyroid hormone. ...Read more

See your doctor: Firstly, you are under 21 and shouldn't be taking in any alcohol to begin with. You need to see your doctor because the alcohol may be harming your liver. Your doctor may want to run tests to determine what the problem is. If this problem only started when you started drinking, then you need to stop it, certainly at least until the cause is clear. Drinking isn't good for your thyroid function. ...Read more

Diet, probiotics: If there is no blood, no severe pain or severe watery diarrhea, medical tests have been normal, and you have stress & poor diet, you can try taking a probiotic (capsule supplement of normal health gut bacteria "acidophilus" and others) twice a day, eat a bland diet, avoid alcohol, caffeine and tobacco, and work on reducing stress. Dr victor sierpina's "healthy gut workbook" is a great resource too. ...Read more
