Alzheimer's disease, loss of weight, hard stools, fecal incontinence. Reason?
My mother in law has alzheimers and has lost around 45 to 50 lbs. Now we are noticing hard dry bowel movements because she is losing her ability to control them until she gets to the toilet, and they were in the floor, hard and dry. What is the reason for this?
these r signs of ageing, she has bowel & bladder incontinence.. u need to keep a maid, who can take care of her. Next thing " alzheimers" is related to memory loss.., not wt. loss, bowel movements.
