2. Weight Loss
A common symptom of ulcerative colitis is weight loss. Patients who experience severe digestive issues may have difficulties absorbing nutrients and minerals, as well as pain during the digestive process. Moreover, they can suffer from painful and explosive diarrhea, causing them to lose weight suddenly and without warning. If the diarrhea isn’t treated, it can lead to weight loss, which may also be severe. As a result of the loss of nutrients, malnutrition and fatigue can occur, as well as other ailments. Treat diarrhea to help improve digestion as well as overall stomach health.
