Detailed Answer:
Hi Vsn 1691,
Thanks for the query. I understand your concern.
Isabgoal, Triphala & Ajwain are home remedies to stimulate digestion & relieve constipation..but over the time the effect may wean off.Constipation leads to dyspepsia &so Daber antacid helps by relieving the symptoms of bloating.
In diabetes... the intestinal movements get reduced so process of digestion gets affected.&so disturbed digestion,excess retainsion of food in bowels leads to constipation &more gas formation.
*To manage the problem one can take over following life style changes along with Good blood sugar control by diet &medicines advised by treating expert.
-Eat small servings of food every 3 hourly to avoid stress on digestive system.Keep regular time for eating.
-Low carbohydrate,more proteins & vegetables,salads,permissible fruits help lowering blood sugar &so prevent affection of body organs by the disease.
-Regular 45 minutes brisk walk/physical exercises help... to lower excess body weight &disease control as such. It also helps digestion & bowel movements without regular laxatives.
-Plenty of water (12 glasses /day )along with high fibers help relieving constipation
-stressless mind &body with sound sleep for 6-8 hours in a day are helpful.
As &when necessary triphala churna can be taken for good bowel movement.
I hope that helps you. Any follow up query is welcome.
Thanks.
