Before specific intestinal exam procedures such as colonoscopy or barium enema X-rays, PEG (polyethylene glycol) with electrolyte is used to clear up the intestines. It works as a laxative by pulling significant amounts of water into the colon. Watery bowel motions are the outcome of this impact. Clearing feces from the intestines allows your doctor to inspect the intestines more thoroughly throughout your treatment.
