Constipation: The Embarrassing Hypothyroidism Symptom That May Save Lives

Constipation: The Embarrassing Hypothyroidism Symptom That May Save Lives

June 2003, New York City

“Dana, we recommend the first colonoscopy at age 50. You are only 33 years old. I highly doubt it is necessary. However given your father’s recent colon cancer diagnosis and your current symptoms, we will schedule your colonoscopy.’

“Dana, we will begin the procedure now, it shouldn’t take long.”

Thank your father. He may have saved your life today.”
