Constipation Specialty Treatment in Pondicherry

Medical definition of constipation is “fewer than three bowel movements a week.” Normal bowel movement pattern is one bowel movement per day.

Causes of all these types of constipation differ from each other.

Severe constipation- Less than one bowel movement per week. Improper food habits and lack of physical activities may be the causes of severe constipation.

Acute constipation- It is the sudden or recent onset of constipation. A serious medical illness like tumors of the colon may be the cause of acute constipation. It requires urgent medical assistance.

Chronic constipation- It is the constipation that lasts for long durations. Again the food habits and lack of physical exercises can be the causes of chronic constipation.

Constipation Symptoms
Depending upon the severity and type of constipation, the symptoms of constipation might also differ from person to person.
  • Infrequent stools.
  • Hard stools
  • Straining or difficulty in passing stools
  • Sense of incomplete evacuation after a bowel movement.

Acute constipation might show such symptoms as rectal bleeding, abdominal pain and cramps, nausea and vomiting, and inexplainable weight loss.

Certain internal as well as external causes of constipation.
  • Inadequate intake of water
  • Low fiber diet
  • Lack of physical activities or exercise
  • Having too much of dairy products
  • Stress
  • Resisting the urge of bowel movement frequently.
  • Using laxatives (that soften the stool) too often. Overuse of laxatives may lead to weakening of muscles in the colon responsible for pushing down the stool.
  • Certain diseases, particularly diseases that affect colon and central nervous system. Some of the examples of diseases that cause constipation include hypothyroidism, Parkinson's disease, multiple sclerosis, spinal cord injuries, depression, colon cancer, diabetes, scleroderma, intestinal pseudo-obstruction, Hirschsprung's disease, Chagas disease, colonic inertia ( where the nerves and/or muscles of the colon do not work normally), pelvic floor dysfunction (where the muscles of the lower pelvis that surround the rectum do not work normally) etc.
  • Certain medications like narcotic pain medications, antidepressants, anticonvulsants, iron supplements, antacids containing calcium or aluminum etc.
  • Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) that is the functional bowel disorder characterized by chronic abdominal pain, discomfort, bloating, and diarrhea often alternating with periods of constipation.
  • Eating Disorders
  • Hormonal imbalance like during pregnancy, hypothyroidism, menstrual periods, etc.
  • Temporary or permanent changes in life such as pregnancy, traveling, old age etc.
