Hi, thanks for using healthcare magicConstipation
is usually related to diet but in some persons there can be other causes.
In terms of diet it can be related to lack of sufficient intake of fiber. It is recommended that persons use at least 5 servings of fruit and vegetables a day, in addition the use of whole grain foods, oats, barley, flax seeds may also be helpful.Overuse of coffee and tea can worsen constipation.
The other potential causes of constipation are:structural lesions within the colon
, low potassium, low level of thyroid hormone, high parathyroid hormone
, neurological conditions, side effect of medications.
It may be best to have him fully assessed by his doctor to determine what is causing his problem.
I hope this helps
