What measures should a hypertensive and diabetic take to overcome acute constipation ?

Hi I am suffering from acute constipation (hard stool and straining bowel) for 10 days. I eat plenty of fibre and green vegetables and moderate amount of raw unpeeled fruits along with drinking 10 glasses of water a day. Getting worse by the day. Need urgent help. I m a 47 year old male who has recently a month ago been diagnosed with type 2 diabetes and my doctor has prescribed me gluconorm SR 300 mg two tablets a day. Also have high triglycerides and got non-alchoholic fatty liver for which I m taking Stanley fenofibrate 145 mg per day, 2 tablets of ursodiol tablets, Evion vitamin E 400 mg two tablets a day. Also take one tablet of teleact telmisartan 80 mg per day for my hypertension. And one tabler per day of aspirin at night.

Hello,



Welcome to HCM,



It is good that you are taking Fiber rich diet & sufficient water.



Are you suffering with flatulence also. It seems that due to diabetes your



gastrointestinal motility(peristalsis) have decreased & stools are getting more



time for water absorption. Drugs are available to increase GI motility for which



you have to consult a Gastroentrologist. In addition you can try 5-10gms. of



Psyllium Husk(Sat Ishabgol) with warm milk before going to bed. In the morning take plenty

of water & go for regular morning walk. After Dinner also have a light walk. This will



increase GI motility & reduce constipation.



Wish you good Health,
