My 7 year old son have the problem of constipation

My 7 year old son have the problem of constipation once in a while. He does not drink water properly. Once he had constipation and had to give him enema for that. The constipation was resolved that time. But still he cries while passing stools and the stools are very hard.

Make sure your child drinks enough water. If he is not drinking water that much, give him juices and some mix drinks like rasna/tang etc, as children love to have colorful drinks, atleast in that way they consume water.

Hi I am a 40 year old female who has been diagnosed with diverticulosis about 2 years ago. I noticed on several occasions, over the past few months, when I have had a bowel movement , there is a small, yellowish in color kidney bean shaped object in my stool . It has been 3-4 times that I have actually seen this but don t know if there have been more times I hadn t noticed (or just couldn t see). I have gone over what I eat the days before this happens and nothing that would look like that had been consumed. I ve actually eaten soups and pasta this past week. I am getting concerned now do to the fact that I struggle with eating certain foods like meat and dairy without having it go right through me within an hour after. About a month ago I stopped eating all meats (red and poultry) just to feel better physically and it has worked, my stomach doesn t feel nearly as bad or bloated as it used to and the bouts of diarhhea have basically stopped. Can you help me with this? I m starting to think I have some kind of parasites or worms ...
