Causes of Constipation
1. Functional cause- due to decreased gastric motility
2. Irritable bowel syndrome- constipation predominant type.
3. Less consumption of fiber rich foods
4. Less fluid intake
5. Prolonged use of certain medications.
& Metabolic causes, etc.
Though symptomatic relief can be obtained by intake of Laxatives, their regular use is not advised.
However, as long as the underlying cause is not treated, symptoms will keep recurring.
So, kindly consult a Gastroenterologist
& get a proper physical examination done.
Investigations like Ultrasound
scan of abdomen, Colonoscopy
& contrast studies will be helpful to rule out any pathology in the Gastrointestinal tract.
