Brief Answer: please refer to the following suggestions... Detailed Answer: Hi, You are saying to experience constipation. One factor causing constipation is hyperacidity of the stomach. Usually, diabetes is associated with gastric and colon problems. Therefore, I suggest to consult a GI specialist and run gastric tests : abdominal ultrasound (to exclude gallbladder problems) and fibro-gastro-scopy (to exclude gastritis and/or ulcer). Meanwhile, I'd suggest to - start using omeprazole to reduce stomach acidity - be careful with the foods you eat (avoid spicy, chilly, fried, alcohol, smoking,etc). Hope it answered to your inquiry! If you have further concerns, do not hesitate to write me back! Dr.Klerida
