Constipation? You are not alone!
Constipation is a very common gastrointestinal condition, affecting about 42 million Americans, or 15% of the population. Constipation is a growing issue in America. Situations that place people at risk for acute constipation include imposed immobility, a change in toileting habits, dietary changes (whether self-imposed by dieting or for medical reasons), medications and stress. The most common predisposing factors for chronic constipation include advanced age, being female, poor fluid and dietary intake, cognitive or functional impairment and ongoing privacy issues, Opioids are among the major medications that predispose patients to constipation.
