Recently I had the pleasure of being interviewed by Dr. Node Smith of the Naturopathic Doctor News & Review about an article I wrote for the pediatrics issue.
I wrote it to call attention to a common but underrecognized condition called encopresis, which shows up as stool accidents in potty-trained kids. These are kids who are having frequent accidents without even noticing, and it’s almost always related to chronic constipation. The kids and families often feel helpless, and too many pediatricians don’t know how to treat them. While the problems may have been ongoing for years, with the right treatments, kids get better within weeks.
The interview recording should be available soon, and the journal article will be out in August, and I’ll share both as soon as they’re available!
