Every year, 140.000 patients are diagnosed and 50.000 die of Bowel Cancer in the US. Although the death rate from bowel cancer is continuously decreasing for the past three decades because of early detection (screening programs) and the treatment improvements, it remains to be one of the three leading causes of cancer death. Just like in case of any other cancer, the sooner the diagnosis is established, the greater chances of full recovery.
Because of maldigestion, the nutrients are not absorbed like they should which results in fatigue. It is a unspecific sign, and if you feel fatigued for a long period of time, the cause may be stress or a hormonal imbalance also (easily treated conditions). Do not ignore fatigue! Before calling it a “safe fatigue” visit your doctor.
