Constipation

Chronic constipation characterized by strained, rare or perceived partial bowel movements. A patient who experiences less than three bowel movements per week is considered to suffer from constipation.  It is a common disease affecting one in four American adults. Patients become more prone to the disorder as they age and more women struggle with this disorder than do men.

Constipation is often a symptom of another illness or disease.  Medications may be the culprit including blood pressure medications, anti-seizure medications, antispasmodics, and narcotics such as pain relievers.  Thyroid disorders, lesions in the colon, diabetes and Parkinson’s disease may also cause the disorder in some patients.  Functional constipation is a disease not resulting from another source such as medication or unrelated illness.

Common Symptoms of Constipation:

  • Having a bowel movement less than three times per week.

Common Symptoms of Chronic Constipation:

Over the past 90 days at least two of the following symptoms are present:

  • Straining while having a bowel movement.
