Wellness Captain Strange Signs of a Serious Illness

  1. Pale stool

Unfortunately, many people are still ashamed to discuss problems related to their stool, even when they know something’s wrong. I think we should end that stigma right now, especially if you notice that your stool is pale with a foul-like smell.

This is a sign that your body doesn’t absorb nutrients as it should, which can be caused by celiac disease. According to the University of Chicago Medicine, this is a serious condition which requires medical treatment as soon as possible. Never ignore a strange stool!


  1. Loss of smell

Nothing compares to the smell of an apple pie baking in your kitchen or a hot chocolate during winter days.

Except if you don’t feel their smell.

Ever since scientists found that the SARS-CoV-2 virus can cause loss of taste and smell, people have been extra careful about this detail. However, COVID-19 isn’t the only disease existing right now (although it may seem like it).

Impaired sense of smell can also be caused by Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s disease. It’s also surprisingly common in the first stages of the illness, so if you notice something’s wrong, you might want to take into account more than one possibility.
