Hi, I would like to know what is actually happening to my father. He has been complaining of the constant changing of diarrhea and constipation. And also, he looked a bit pale all of the sudden, although he never had any problem with blood tests. Doctor said that he will have to do a fecal occult blood test. What this all means?

Anemia is a sure sign there is some ongoing problem in his organism. Even though he did not complain of the blood in his stool, there is a certain possibility there is a microscopic bleeding that cannot be seen with an eye. Therefore, the fecal occult blood test is done to see if there is some tissue change in his intestines.
