What is constipation?
Normal and regular bowel movement is important for most people. However, what is 'normal and regular' varies from person to person. Some may have a bowel movement every day, others less often. Whatever it is like for you, it is best for your bowel movement to havea regular pattern.
Constipation is an occasional problem for some people. For others, it may happen more often. It happens when the normal muscle actions in the bowel (large intestine) slow down. This can mean that material is not easily eliminated from the body.
The cause of constipation is often not known. It can be associated with:
A sudden change in diet
A diet with not enough fibre
Not drinking enough fluid
Loss of 'tone' of the bowel muscles in older people
Medicines such as morphine or codeine
Having to stay in bed for a long time
Lack of exercise
Whatever the cause, constipation can be uncomfortable. It may make you feel bloated and heavy or generally 'off-colour'.
Sometimes it causes headaches. It is recommended to use changes in diet and bulk forming medicines to control constipation before using this medicine.
These healthy tips are recommended to try to prevent constipation from happening:
Eat a balanced diet including fresh fruit and vegetables.
Drink enough water so that you do not become dehydrated.
Keep up your exercise and stay fit.
Make time to empty your bowels when your body tells you.
