There are things in life that we just want to hide and not to share to others. However, when their secret remains kept even with doctor’s asking, that can give one a threat to one’s health.
Here are some information that we should keep open with our health care providers:
1. Alcoholism, Smoking and Drugs

2. Not normal urination and bowel movements
Many assume that the practices within the toilet is extremely private and should not be discussed with anyone else. However, a person can put himself in danger by not saying about any changes or abnormalities noticed in the process of urination and bowel movements.
