While some changes to the frequency of your urination, or the colour of it, can be explained by harmless dietary or medicinal reasons, a sudden increase in the need to wee can also be a sign of a serious problem.

Being aware of changes to your toilet habits can help identify problems earlier and could end up being a lifesaver.

Receding and bleeding gums can also be a sign that there is an issue that should be addressed urgently.
