What Is Chronic Constipation?
Constipation is a common problem that affects people of all ages. It can be caused by many things including diet changes or medications. If you experience constipation it may cause discomfort such as bloating, gas, cramps, pain, or diarrhea. You should talk to your doctor about any symptoms you’re experiencing so they can help determine the best treatment plan for you.
What Causes Constipation?
There are several different reasons why someone might develop constipation. Some of these include:
• Diet – Eating too much fiber can make stool hard and dry. This makes it difficult to pass through the intestines.
• Medications – Certain drugs like antidepressants, blood thinners, anti-inflammatory medicines, and others can slow down digestion and lead to constipation.
• Laxative Use – Using laxatives without consulting with your health care provider could result in serious side effects. These include dehydration, electrolyte imbalances, kidney stones, and even death.
Symptoms of Constipation
The common symptoms of chronic constipation are listed below:
1) Hard stools.
2) Straining while trying to go to the bathroom.
3) Bloated feeling after going to the toilet.
4) Painful defecation.
5) Feeling full quickly after eating small amounts of food.
6) Passing mucus frequently.
7) Difficulty swallowing due to abdominal pressure.
8) Abdominal distention.
How Common is Constipation?
According to the National Digestive Diseases Information Clearinghouse, approximately 20 percent of Americans suffer from some form of constipation. The number increases among older adults. In fact, nearly half of those over 65 years old have constipation. Women are twice as likely as men to report having trouble passing regularity.
In old age constipation becomes increasingly prevalent. As we get older, there tends to be fewer movements per hour, which means that the colon has less time to empty itself completely. Additionally, the muscles around the anus become weaker and lose tone. All of these factors combine to create problems with emptying the bowels.
How Can I Treat Constipation At Home?
If you have mild cases of constipation at home, try drinking plenty of water each day. Avoid caffeine because this stimulant will increase intestinal motility. Also avoid alcohol since it slows down bowel function.
Try eating smaller meals throughout the day instead of three large ones. Eat foods high in dietary fibers and low fat dairy products. Drink lots of fluids during the day. Take magnesium supplements when needed. Add probiotics to your daily routine. Talk to your physician about other options available to treat constipation.
Depending upon how severe your case of constipation is, your doctor may recommend various treatments. A few examples include:
• Increasing fluid intake. Drinking enough liquid helps keep the body hydrated and therefore promotes better movement of waste matter through the system.
• Adding bulk to the diet. Fiber rich foods such as fruits, vegetables, whole grains, beans, nuts, seeds, etc., provide nutrients necessary for proper functioning of the gut. They also add bulk to the stool making it easier to move through the intestine.
• Taking medication.
Why You Get Constipation?
Constipation happens because our bodies do not absorb all the nutrition they need. This can happen if one or both of two things occur: 1) We don’t eat enough fiber-rich foods; 2) Our digestion process isn’t working properly.
Fiber Rich Foods
A healthy diet should contain adequate levels of soluble and insoluble fiber. Soluble fiber dissolves in water and forms gums that help soften feces. Insoluble fiber does not dissolve but adds bulk to the stool by absorbing moisture. It’s important to consume sufficient quantities of both types of fiber so that the intestines remain lubricated.
The best sources of soluble fiber are oats, barley, applesauce, prunes, pears, bananas, legumes, peas, lentils, oat bran, brown rice, wheat germ, flaxseed oil, psyllium seed husk powder, chia seeds, and soybeans.
Soluble fiber is found naturally in many plant foods including fresh fruit, raw vegetables, and unprocessed cereals like corn flakes, grits, and couscous.
Can Constipation Cause Back pain
Yes, constipation can cause back pain. The longer the stool remains in the bowel, the harder it becomes dry and difficult to pass. As a result, people with constipation often experience cramping discomfort in their lower abdomen – which can radiate into their back and be mistaken for back pain.
The pain is usually most noticeable when a person with constipation tries to pass a bowel movement.
Complications of Chronic Constipation
The complications of constipation are numerous. Some common symptoms include bloating, abdominal pain, gas, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, weight loss, dehydration, malnutrition, anemia, depression, anxiety, insomnia, fatigue, irritability, headache, heartburn, acid reflux, dry skin, muscle cramps, joint aches, poor concentration, memory lapses, decreased libido, erectile dysfunction, urinary incontinence, impotence, premature ejaculation, and infertility.
However, it can become a problem if you have any of these conditions:
1. Diabetes – If diabetes causes frequent urination, then this could lead to kidney stones. Diabetics who experience frequent episodes of blood sugar spikes, especially at night, might be prone to developing bladder infections. These people must take extra care while using laxatives.
2. An enlarged prostate gland – In men with prostatic hypertrophy, there is increased pressure on the urethra causing difficulty passing urine. The use of laxative drugs increases the risk of retention of urine and subsequent infection. Men suffering from chronic constipation due to their age or illness should consult their doctors before taking any medications.
3. Kidney disease – Laxatives containing sodium chloride can aggravate existing renal problems. People with impaired kidneys should only use milder preparations of laxatives. Those with severely damaged kidneys should seek immediate medical attention.
4. Heart disease – Certain cardiac disorders require caution regarding the use of certain kinds of laxatives. For example, those prescribed digitalis, calcium channel blockers, beta blockers, nitroglycerin patches, digoxin, warfarin, aspirin, antihistamines, antacids, diuretics, corticosteroids, nonsteroidal antiinflammatory agents, and other prescription medicines should avoid overuse of stimulant laxatives because they increase fluid secretion into the intestine.
5. Liver disease – Patients with liver cirrhosis should also exercise extreme caution about the use of laxatives. They should never ingest large amounts of fluids during treatment. Instead, they should drink plenty of clear liquids.
6. Cancer – There has been some evidence suggesting that prolonged use of laxatives may promote tumor growth. Therefore, patients with active malignancies should always discuss their concerns with their physicians prior to starting therapy.
7. Bowel obstructions – A bowel obstruction usually results from either too much fecal matter or insufficient intestinal movement. This situation requires urgent medical intervention.
8. Gastrointestinal diseases – Chronic constipation caused by gastrointestinal diseases like Crohn’s Disease, ulcerative colitis, diverticulitis, etc., needs careful evaluation and management.
9. Other illnesses – Constipation is often associated with many different types of physical ailments including arthritis, asthma, bronchitis, cystic fibrosis, epilepsy, gout, hypertension, migraine headaches, multiple sclerosis, Parkinson’s disease, rheumatoid arthritis, spinal cord injuries, stroke, thyroid disorders, Tourette syndrome, traumatic brain injury, and others. It is important to rule out all potential contributing factors before prescribing medication for constipation.
10. Medications – Many commonly used medications can cause constipation. Examples include antidepressants, antipsychotics, benzodiazepines and narcotics.
How Is Constipation Diagnosed?
Constipation is diagnosed based on symptoms such as:
1. Straining when you go to the bathroom
2. Difficulty in defecating
3. Passing hard stools
4. Painful evacuation
5. Feeling incomplete after having eaten
If you have one or more of these symptoms, it’s likely that you are experiencing constipation. However, there are several tests available to help diagnose this condition. These tests include:
Stool analysis – Your stool sample is examined under a microscope to determine if it contains blood, mucus, parasites, bacteria, or undigested foods. If so, then further testing is needed to identify what type of problem exists.
Colonoscopy – During this test, an instrument called a scope is inserted into your anus and passed down toward your stomach. As it goes deeper, images are taken using special lights attached to the tip of the scope.
Treatment of Constipation
Treatment of constipation involves dietary fiber intake or increased fluid consumption which increases bowel movement frequency. An alternative to increasing water or dietary fiber intake is using laxatives to relieve symptoms of constipation. Laxative misuse has many adverse effects such as dehydration, electrolyte disturbances, and bowel dependency so laxative use is only recommended for short periods of time (less than two weeks).
It has been shown that constipation can be treated with an improved diet alone as well as dietary fiber supplementation. However, sometimes it may required laxatives or enemas to relieve constipation. Enemas should not be used regularly and are not advised in any cases where a person has abdominal pain or rectal bleeding. In cases of severe dehydration from prolonged diarrhea, intravenous hydration is the best form of treatment.
