Segmental colonic transit after oral 67Ga-citrate in healthy subjects and those with chronic idiopathic constipation. (1/950)

Measurement of segmental colonic transit is important in the assessment of patients with severe constipation. 111In-diethylenetriamine pentaacetic acid (DTPA) has been established as the tracer of choice for these studies, but it is expensive and not readily available. 67Ga-citrate is an inexpensive tracer and when given orally is not absorbed from the bowel. It was compared with 111In-DTPA in colonic transit studies in nonconstipated control subjects and then in patients with idiopathic constipation. METHODS: Studies were performed after oral administration of 3 MBq (81 microCi) 67Ga-citrate or 4 MBq (108 microCi) 111In-DTPA in solution. Serial abdominal images were performed up to 96 h postinjection, and computer data were generated from geometric mean images of segmental retention of tracer, mean activity profiles and a colonic tracer half-clearance time. RESULTS: There were no differences in segmental retention of either tracer or in mean activity profiles between control subjects and constipated patients. Results in constipated subjects were significantly different from those in controls. The mean half-clearance times of tracer for control subjects were 28.8 h for 67Ga-citrate and 29.9 h for 111In-DTPA in control subjects and 75.0 h for 67Ga-citrate and 70.8 h for 111In-DTPA in constipated patients. CONCLUSION: Oral 67Ga-citrate can be used as a safe alternative to 111In-DTPA for accurate measurement of segmental colonic transit.  (+info)

Investigation and management of long-standing chronic constipation in childhood. (2/950)

The anorectal physiology of 106 children with long-standing chronic constipation, who had failed to response to a trial of medical treatment, was assessed. 10 (9%) were shown to have ultrashort-segment Hischsprung's disease, later confirmed on histology, The remainder showed evidence of hypertrophy of the internal sphicter on anorectal manometry and had a vigorous anal dilatation (to accept 4 fingers) under general anesthesia. After this, 38% were able to be weaned off all medication and most of the remainder improved. Further anal dilatation and internal sphincterotomy allowed a further 10 children to stop laxative, bringing the total to 48%.  (+info)

Chronic abdominal pain in childhood: diagnosis and management. (3/950)

More than one third of children complain of abdominal pain lasting two weeks or longer. The diagnostic approach to abdominal pain in children relies heavily on the history provided by the parent and child to direct a step-wise approach to investigation. If the history and physical examination suggest functional abdominal pain, constipation or peptic disease, the response to an empiric course of medical management is of greater value than multiple "exclusionary" investigations. A symptom diary allows the child to play an active role in the diagnostic process. The medical management of constipation, peptic disease and inflammatory bowel disease involves nutritional strategies, pharmacologic intervention and behavior and psychologic support.  (+info)

Rectal biopsy for diagnosis of intestinal neuronal dysplasia in children: a prospective multicentre study on interobserver variation and clinical outcome. (4/950)

BACKGROUND: Intestinal neuronal dysplasia (IND) of the colonic submucous plexus is considered to be a congenital malformation of the enteric nervous system causing symptoms resembling those of Hirschsprung's disease. In contrast with the established diagnosis of aganglionosis using enzyme histochemistry, controversy exists over the diagnostic criteria of IND on rectal biopsies previously defined by a consensus report and the causal relation between morphological findings and clinical symptoms. AIMS: The interobserver variability was prospectively investigated with respect to final diagnoses and several histological features in rectal biopsy specimens from children suspected of having colonic motility disturbances. METHODS: 377 biopsy specimens from 108 children aged 4 days to 15 years were independently coded without knowledge of clinical symptoms by three experienced pathologists for 20 histological features, and a final diagnosis was given for every case. Interobserver variation for the different items and the final diagnosis were analysed using Cohen's kappa statistic. Clinical data at biopsy and outcome after 12 months were related to morphological findings. RESULTS: The three pathologists agreed completely with respect to the diagnosis Hirschsprung's disease (kappa = 1), but in only 14% of the children without aganglionosis. In 15 (17%) of the 87 children without aganglionosis, at least one pathologist judged the case as normal, while another diagnosed IND. kappa values were close to the zero value expected by chance for the diagnoses normal and IND. Young age was related to the presence of several morphological features-for example, acetylcholine esterase staining and presence of giant ganglia. Children with chronic constipation diagnosed as having IND, given no other specific diagnosis by any of the pathologists, were significantly younger (median 8.8 months) and had a higher cure rate after one year (60%) than constipated patients considered by all observers to have no histological abnormalities (median 6.1 years, cure rate 23%). CONCLUSIONS: In contrast with Hirschsprung's disease, there is a high interobserver variation with regard to the different morphological features and final diagnosis of IND, based on the criteria and conditions of the previous consensus report. The high frequency of histological "abnormalities" in young infants suggests that some of the features may represent a normal variant of postnatal development rather than a pathological process. Investigations using more refined and morphometric methods in rectal specimens from infants and children without bowel disease are needed to define the normal range of morphological appearance at different ages. These preliminary data indicate that, with current knowledge, rectal biopsy for diagnostic purposes should only be performed in constipated children for diagnosis of Hirschsprung's disease.  (+info)

Gall bladder emptying in severe idiopathic constipation. (5/950)

BACKGROUND: It has been suggested that slow transit constipation (STC) may be part of a panenteric motor disorder. AIM: To evaluate motility of an upper gastrointestinal organ, the gall bladder, in 16 patients with STC and 20 healthy controls. METHODS: Gall bladder emptying (ultrasonography) was studied in response to neural, cephalic-vagal stimulation with modified sham feeding (MSF) for 90 minutes and in response to hormonal stimulation with cholecystokinin (CCK, 0.5 IDU/kg/h) for 60 minutes. RESULTS: Fasting gall bladder volume in patients with STC (17 (2) cm(3)) was significantly (p<0. 01) reduced compared with that in controls (24 (2) cm(3)). Gall bladder emptying in response to MSF was significantly reduced in patients with STC expressed both as percentage emptying (11 (5)% versus 22 (3)%; p<0.05) and as absolute emptying (2.1 (0.7) cm(3) versus 4.9 (0.7) cm(3); p<0.02). However, percentage gall bladder emptying in response to CCK was not different between patients and controls (73 (4)% versus 67 (4)%) although the absolute reduction in gall bladder volume was significantly (p<0.05) smaller in patients (10.7 (1.1) cm(3) versus 15.3 (1.4) cm(3)). CONCLUSIONS: Patients with slow transit constipation have smaller fasting gall bladder volumes, impaired gall bladder responses to vagal cholinergic stimulation, but normal gall bladder responses to hormonal stimulation with CCK. These results point to abnormalities in gastrointestinal motility proximal from the colon in slow transit constipation and more specifically, impaired neural responsiveness.  (+info)

Functional bowel disorders and functional abdominal pain. (6/950)

The Rome diagnostic criteria for the functional bowel disorders and functional abdominal pain are used widely in research and practice. A committee consensus approach, including criticism from multinational expert reviewers, was used to revise the diagnostic criteria and update diagnosis and treatment recommendations, based on research results. The terminology was clarified and the diagnostic criteria and management recommendations were revised. A functional bowel disorder (FBD) is diagnosed by characteristic symptoms for at least 12 weeks during the preceding 12 months in the absence of a structural or biochemical explanation. The irritable bowel syndrome, functional abdominal bloating, functional constipation, and functional diarrhea are distinguished by symptom-based diagnostic criteria. Unspecified FBD lacks criteria for the other FBDs. Diagnostic testing is individualized, depending on patient age, primary symptom characteristics, and other clinical and laboratory features. Functional abdominal pain (FAP) is defined as either the FAP syndrome, which requires at least six months of pain with poor relation to gut function and loss of daily activities, or unspecified FAP, which lacks criteria for the FAP syndrome. An organic cause for the pain must be excluded, but aspects of the patient's pain behavior are of primary importance. Treatment of the FBDs relies upon confident diagnosis, explanation, and reassurance. Diet alteration, drug treatment, and psychotherapy may be beneficial, depending on the symptoms and psychological features.  (+info)

Childhood functional gastrointestinal disorders. (7/950)

This is the first attempt at defining criteria for functional gastrointestinal disorders (FGIDs) in infancy, childhood, and adolescence. The decision-making process was as for adults and consisted of arriving at consensus, based on clinical experience. This paper is intended to be a quick reference. The classification system selected differs from the one used in the adult population in that it is organized according to main complaints instead of being organ-targeted. Because the child is still developing, some disorders such as toddler's diarrhea (or functional diarrhea) are linked to certain physiologic stages; others may result from behavioral responses to sphincter function acquisition such as fecal retention; others will only be recognizable after the child is cognitively mature enough to report the symptoms (e.g., dyspepsia). Infant regurgitation, rumination, and cyclic vomiting constitute the vomiting disorders. Abdominal pain disorders are classified as: functional dyspepsia, irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), functional abdominal pain, abdominal migraine, and aerophagia. Disorders of defecation include: infant dyschezia, functional constipation, functional fecal retention, and functional non-retentive fecal soiling. Some disorders, such as IBS and dyspepsia and functional abdominal pain, are exact replications of the adult criteria because there are enough data to confirm that they represent specific and similar disorders in pediatrics. Other disorders not included in the pediatric classification, such as functional biliary disorders, do occur in children; however, existing data are insufficient to warrant including them at the present time. For these disorders, it is suggested that, for the time being, clinicians refer to the criteria established for the adult population.  (+info)

Outcome of colectomy for slow transit constipation. (8/950)

OBJECTIVE: To review the outcome data for colectomy performed for patients with slow transit constipation (STC). BACKGROUND: The outcome of surgical intervention in patients with STC is unpredictable. This may be a consequence of the lack of effectiveness of such interventions or may reflect heterogeneity within this group of patients. METHODS: The authors reviewed the data of all series in the English language that document the outcome of colectomy in > or = 10 patients in the treatment of STC. RESULTS: Thirty-two series fulfilled the entry criteria. There was widespread variability in patient satisfaction rates after colectomy (39% to 100%), reflecting large differences in the incidence of postoperative complications and in long-term functional results. Outcome was dependent on several clinical and pathophysiologic findings and on the type of study, the population studied, and the surgical procedure used. CONCLUSIONS: It may be possible to predict outcome on the basis of preoperative clinical and pathophysiologic findings. This review suggests a rationale for the selection of patients for colectomy.  (+info)

1. The concept of constipation:. Foreign scholars Drossman and others believe that constipation can be regarded as constipation if the time of defecation is more than 25% of normal or/and 2 times a week or less. But in fact, due to differences in diet, lifestyle, bowel habits and food composition, the time between bowel movements is very different. Although the defecation time is long, as long as the bowel movement is smooth and there is no discomfort, constipation cannot be considered. Therefore, it is generally believed that constipation refers to those who have uncomfortable constipation, prolonged defecation time, or difficulty in defecation despite the intention of defecation, or feeling of incompleteness or discomfort after defecation, or accompanied by full abdominal distension or other discomfort. If you have the above symptoms, even if you have one or more bowel movements a day, it should be considered constipation.. 2. The harm of constipation:. Long-term constipation, because the ...

A new prescription drug, lubiprostone (Amitiza), has been approved for the treatment of chronic idiopathic constipation in adults. This capsule form of lubiprostone increases the secretion of intestinal fluid, which then eases the passage of stool and alleviates constipation symptoms. Two clinical trials were conducted to test the drugs efficacy. Patients participating in the trial had had, on average, fewer than 3 spontaneous bowel movements per week and had experienced symptoms of constipation for at least 6 months. In the trials, lubiprostone yielded a higher frequency of bowel movements in the first week than the placebo. Similar results continued for weeks 2, 3, and 4. Studies over 6 to 12 months showed that the drug decreased constipation severity, abdominal bloating, and discomfort. Common side effects of lubiprostone were headache, nausea, diarrhea, abdominal pain, and distention, which may or may not be associated with the drug. It is being marketed by Sucampo Pharmaceuticals and ...

Background Urinary tract infection (UTI) is one of the most common bacterial infections in children, if not diagnosed leads to serious complications such as hypertension, chronic renal failure and renal scar. Constipation is one of the main risk factors for recurrent UTI. The aim of present study was to investigate the relationship between chronic constipation and urinary tract infection in children. Materials and Methods In this case-control study 105 patients with functional chronic constipation as case group, compared with 104 children without chronic constipation as control. The control group was matched according to gender and age. The prevalence of UTI in children with and without constipation as well as their improvement was compared after treatment. Results The prevalence of UTI in case and control groups was 13.3% and 6.7%, respectively (P=0.17). The prevalence of UTI in case group decreased to 3.8% after treatment of constipation. Escherichia coli (E coli) was the most commonly isolated
Constipation Constipation is a condition that causes irregular bowel movements that are painful or difficult, or stools that are hard in consistency. Irregular bowel movements alone do not mean you are constipated because bowel frequency can vary between three times a day to once a week among normal people. Therefore, hard stools that are difficult to pass or infrequent stools accompanied by abdominal pain, back pain, and abdominal bloating define real constipation. Other symptoms of constipation include feeling bloated, uncomfortable, and sluggish. Constipation may be acute or chronic. Acute constipation begins suddenly and conspicuously. Chronic constipation may begin insidiously and persist for months or years.. The number of bowel movements usually get less with age. Ninety-five percent of adults have bowel movements between three and 21 times per week, and this is considered normal. The most common pattern is one bowel movement a day, but this pattern is seen in less than half of people. ...

Question - Severe constipation, no relief with laxatives, abdominal pain. What can be done?. Ask a Doctor about Waterborne diseases, Ask a Gastroenterologist
Constipation is a commonly diagnosed gastrointestinal disorder with an estimated prevalence in the general population of 12-19%, which results in lower quality of life and significant healthcare costs to the individual. Almost 9 in 10 physician visits for constipation result in a laxative prescription. Additionally, consumers in the USA and in the United Kingdom spend almost 1 billion dollars annually for over-the-counter laxatives. Chronic constipation is diagnosed almost solely on patient symptoms, which generally includes unsatisfactory defecation due to infrequent stools, difficult stool passage, or both. The cause of chronic constipation is unknown and likely multifactorial with physiological changes, psychological factors, and lifestyle influences identified as possible culprits. Consequently, identification of effective constipation treatments remains a challenge.. The initial management of constipation symptoms is focused on evaluating lifestyle and diet variables as possible culprits. ...

BACKGROUND: The standard surgical treatment for slow-transit constipation (STC) is subtotal colectomy and ileorectal anastomosis. A segmental resection may serve the same purpose, but with a reduced risk of side-effects such as diarrhoea or incontinence. The aim of this study was to evaluate the functional results following segmental resection in a consecutive series of patients with STC.. METHODS: Selection criteria included prolonged segmental transit on oral 111In-labelled diethylene triamine penta-acetic acid scintigraphic transit study, and disabling symptoms resistant to medical therapy and treatment of outlet obstruction. Twenty-eight patients (26 women, median age 52 years) were treated with segmental resection and followed prospectively with a validated questionnaire.. RESULTS: After a median of 50 (range 16-78) months, 23 patients were pleased with the outcome. The median (range) stool frequency increased from 1 (0-7) to 7 (0-63) per week (P , 0.001).

Constipation is common in children and may be related to any of the causes noted in the previous section. In a small number of children, constipation may be the result of physical problems. Children with such defects as the absence of normal nerve endings in portions of the bowel, abnormalities of the spinal cord, thyroid deficiency, mental retardation, and certain other inherited metabolic disorders often suffer symptoms of constipation. Constipation in children, however, usually is due to poor bowel habits. Studies show that many children who suffer from constipation when they are older have a history of passing stools that are firmer than average in their early weeks of life. Because this occurs before there are significant variations in diet, habits, or attitudes, it suggests that many children who develop constipation have a normal tendency to have firmer stools. Such children suffer little from the tendency unless it is aggravated by poor bowel habits or poor diet. Constipation may result ...

The purpose of this study is to assess the efficacy of Lubiprostone (Amitiza) compared to standard care for the treatment of constipation in orthopedic patients receiving opioids for pain control during inpatient rehabilitation. Lubiprostone (Amitiza®) is a locally acting chloride channel activator that increases intestinal fluid, and thus increases intestinal motility. It has been approved for chronic constipation, but not in the setting of opioid-induced constipation. Senna is a stimulant laxative that increases propulsive peristaltic activity of the colon through local effects on the mucosa.. Subjects will be compared using from the Patient Assessment of Constipation (PAC) which has previously been found to be a valid and reliable way to measure constipation symptoms and clinical course. (Frank, Kleinman et al. 1999) as well as with other measures of bowel-related symptoms and functional outcomes. ...
While it is true that labor pains may feel like constipation, it is also true that constipation and gas are very real concerns when it comes to pregnancy. Sometimes, constipation can cause cramping and shooting pain in the abdomen which may seem like a contraction. This gives you an impression that youre experiencing labor.. In the case, where the constipation like feeling is not accompanied by any other symptoms it may just be tightening of the stomach cause by constipation. During pregnancy, changing hormones and vitamins and iron supplements can slow down the gastrointestinal tract causing constipation..

Most children with constipation do not have an underlying medical problem (such as low thyroid or a bowel anatomic abnormality) however if a child has persistent problems with constipation, it is important for a health care provider to carefully consider any possible underlying problem. Most problems can be excluded by a history and physical exam. This includes a careful abdominal and neurologic exam and typically a rectal examination. Special tests are ordered only if there are concerns from the childs history or exam that suggest an underlying medical problem.. Functional constipation (constipation which is not due to an underlying medical problem…..most constipation) is treated by modifying lifestyle as discussed in the section above, by cleaning out the bowel if the constipation has been long standing (with higher doses of laxatives and in some cases enemas) and then through the use of daily stool softeners and laxatives to keep the bowel movements soft and daily. When a child has had ...

NMSs in PD are receiving increased attention from physicians and researchers.25-28 The efficacy of acupuncture in the treatment of NMSs in PD, such as sleep disorders and depression, has been supported by research.18 29 However, there is still insufficient clinical research regarding use of acupuncture to treat constipation in PD. The efficacy of EA in the treatment of functional constipation has global value.19 Meanwhile, previous studies have shown that using acupuncture as an auxiliary therapy for PD can reduce toxicity and lead to increasing the efficacy of medication.29-31 Therefore, we hypothesised that EA therapy can ameliorate constipation in PD, although this hypothesis has not yet been supported by high-quality research. We designed this RCT to provide better evidence of the efficacy of EA for constipation in PD.. At present, treatments for constipation in PD mostly include oral medications, which can alleviate the clinical symptoms of functional constipation, but do not benefit PD ...

Objective: To evaluate the prevalence of chronic constipation (CC) in unselected children, its association with atopy, and the efficacy of a cows milk protein (CMP) elimination diet on refractory constipation. Study Design: The study was conducted by 6 primary care pediatricians, serving a population of 5113 children aged birth through 12 years, but only 2068 of them were 6 months-6 years. During a three month period, prevalence of CC was determined for the entire study population, ages 0-12 years. In the second part of the study, all patients aged 6 months to 6 years with chronic constipation, and age and sex matched controls, were evaluated for atopy. and its association with CC. A questionnaire was completed including personal and family history of atopy and bowel movement characteristics. Patients were tested for atopy by specific serum IgE and/or skin-prick tests. Constipated patients, refractory to osmotic laxatives, underwent a 4-week CMP elimination diet. Results: 91 (1.8 %) had CC, and ...
It is normal to experience constipation from time to time, but chronic constipation can be harmful to your digestive health. The definition of constipation is having three or fewer bowel movements in one week. It also can refer to straining to have a bowel movement, or passing hardened, dry stools. There are many reasons that you may be constipated, and the sooner you understand what is causing your constipation, the sooner you can get relief. Here are some common causes of constipation:. 1. Dehydration-You have probably heard that you should drink 8 glasses of water per day, but that may not be enough. According to the Institute of Medicine, men should drink at least 104 ounces of water per day (13 cups) and women should drink at least 72 ounces (9 cups).. 2. Poor diet-In our fast-paced society, we gravitate toward pre-packaged, preserved or fast foods that are high in fat and low in fiber. Fiber is a necessary component of a healthy diet, but few people eat enough dietary fiber. Fiber helps ...

When the midgut does not undergo normal rotation or return into the abdominal space during embryologic development, a variety of anatomic configurations and anomalies can occur (Figure 3).4 The most common malrotation variant is nonrotation.3,10 Nonrotation results when the cecal bud is the first segment to return into the abdomen and comes to rest in the left lower quadrant.1 In this setting, the colon occupies the remainder of the left side of the abdomen, leaving the prearterial segment of the midgut to reside in the right side of the abdomen. In addition, the final 180 degrees of counterclockwise rotation does not occur. The resultant anatomic configuration can include a reversed relationship of the superior mesenteric artery and superior mesenteric vein as well as a reversed location of the duodenal-jejunal junction anterior to the superior mesenteric artery.11 All of these anatomic anomalies were noted in the patient presented herein. ...
TUESDAY, Sept. 13, 2016 (HealthDay News) - Acupuncture may provide some relief to patients with chronic severe functional constipation, according to research published online Sept. 13 in the Annals of Internal Medicine.. The study involved patients with chronic severe functional constipation. The researchers randomly assigned 1,075 patients to one of two groups. Half received electroacupuncture at traditional acupoints. The other half received sham treatments at nonacupoints. Acupuncturists at 15 Chinese hospitals administered the real and sham treatments, consisting of 28 half-hour sessions.. Over the eight-week treatment period, 31.3 percent of patients in the electroacupuncture group versus 12.1 percent of patients in the control group had three or more bowel movements in a week, on average. During the studys 12-week follow-up period, 37.7 percent of electroacupuncture patients reported three or more bowel movements a week, on average, compared to 14.1 percent of sham therapy ...
Petroleum jelly is not a good long-term treatment for constipation. It does not treat all forms of constipation, nor address any underlying health problems.. If your cat is constipated for more than a day, call your veterinarian to evaluate the severity of the condition and the possibility that the constipation is a symptom of an illness. Your veterinarian might recommend a pet enema or switching to canned (moist) food to hydrate your cat. Severe cases might require surgery. You can prevent a recurrence of constipation by providing your cat with plenty of water, canned food, and fiber-rich food.. Mineral oil works the same way as petroleum jelly on constipation. Most feline hairball remedies are made of mineral oil, and they come in flavors that might be more tempting to your cat than petroleum jelly.. Although it is safe for cats to ingest petroleum jelly, humans are different and we do not advocate trying to treat human constipation this way.. ...

Abstract. Constipation, a common and complex clinical symptom, is a predisposing factor for many serious diseases, such as gastrointestinal diseases, cardiovascular diseases and cancers. Some reports suggest that constipation is associated with gut microbiota, but the specific mechanism is unknown. To clarify how constipation interferes with the normal physiological function of organisms, 1H NMR profiles combined with polymerase chain reaction-denaturing gradient gel electrophoresis (PCR-DGGE) and 16s rRNA gene sequencing were used to investigate the relationship among constipation, metabolism of gut microbiota and host. 27 urinary metabolites and 22 faecal metabolites were found to be associated with constipation, which affect the metabolism of energy, butyric acid, choline, amino acid and the functions of liver and kidney. 5 biomarkers were screened to diagnose the constipation based on the receiver operating characteristic (ROC) analysis. Meanwhile, the levels of Lactobacillus, ...
Constipation can usually be satisfactorily treated by increasing dietary fiber and fluids or by using a bulk-forming agent, such as psyllium. A few patients need additional laxative therapy. Lactulose, a nonabsorbable disaccharide that acts as an osmotic laxative, is often recommended for treatment of chronic constipation in the elderly. Lederle and colleagues hypothesized that sorbitol, another nonabsorbable sugar, might be as effective as lactulose. Although the study design was strong, it had 2 methodologic flaws. First, during the 2 weeks before randomization, patients were given lactulose, and 9 of 40 patients dropped out because of lactulose intolerance. The results of the randomized trial thus underestimate the frequency of adverse effects with lactulose and may distort the relative frequency in comparison with sorbitol. Second, although eligible patients had three or fewer spontaneous bowel movements per week and, with their current laxative regimen, had fewer than one a day, the ...

Thirty-six percent (108/302) met the criteria for constipation, including the following subtypes: 19% outlet constipation, 5% functional constipation, 5% constipation predominant irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), and 7% IBS-outlet. Nineteen percent (56/302) of subjects had IBS or 1 of its subtypes. Functional diarrhea was seen in 6% (17/302), fecal incontinence in 19% (58/302), and anorectal pain disorders in 25% (77/302). After controlling for age, parity, diabetes, constipating medications, and previous pelvic surgery, there were no differences in the prevalence of constipation or any of its subtypes between patients with UI and those with stage 3 or 4 POP. Fecal incontinence was independently associated with UI (adjusted odds ratio [OR] 6.3; 95% CI 2.6 19.1), but not advanced POP. Neither overall stage of POP nor stage of posterior vaginal prolapse was significantly associated with any of the functional bowel disorders, including constipation and its subtypes.

Constipation Treatments Flaxseed This seed has been known as one of the best ways to relieve constipation for centuries. The whole seeds contain anywhere from six to 12 percent mucilage. Mucilage is a slimy, gum-like compound that provides a temporarily soothing and protective coating along the entire digestive tract. Aloe This plant is a remedy that is mainly used for constipation because the plant has laxative properties that help empty the intestine naturally, according to scientific studies. Aloe is very potent and should be used with caution. In a double-blind, randomized, controlled trial of 28 healthy adults, aloe vera latex was reported to have a laxative effect compared to a placebo that was stronger than the stimulant laxative phenolphthalein - making aloe vera a natural constipation relief remedy.

A new study from China indicates that electroacupuncture can help treat severe constipation. The treatments are only effective when there is no underlying medical problem, and no use of medications that can cause constipation. Of the 1,075 individuals enrolled none were having more than 2 bowel movements a week when they joined the study.. The researchers divided the participants into 2 groups - those in one group received electroacupuncture while those in the other received sham treatments. The acupuncture was performed at 15 hospitals in China. Electroacupuncture involves low-voltage currents delivered through acupuncture needles. In this case, the needles were inserted at 6 points in the abdomen for 30 minutes per treatment. With the sham treatment, the needles didnt penetrate as deeply as they did with the real thing and were placed at non-acupuncture points.. The researchers reported that 31 percent of the patients treated with electroacupuncture had an average of 3 or more bowel movements ...
The aim of the LIFELAX randomised controlled trial (diet and lifestyle vs. laxatives in the management of chronic constipation) is to develop and evaluate a cost effective intervention to promote diet and lifestyle in the treatment and management of chronic constipation for older people in Primary Care. Constipation affects the quality of life in around 20% of older people in the community. In the 65 years plus population, a significant proportion of men and women both living in institutions (81% and 75% respectively) and free living (30% and 37% respectively) use laxatives. Approximately £42 million is spent each year on prescribed laxatives in England in addition to laxatives purchased over the counter. Although bowel problems are often multifactorial, diet and lifestyle have an extremely important role in their management. This paper describes one aspect of the main study, the development and piloting of the Patient information leaflets (PILs). Following review of the literature and interviews with

Constipation means different things to different people. For many people, it simply means infrequent stools. For others, however, constipation means hard stools, difficulty passing stools (straining), or a sense of incomplete emptying after a bowel movement. The cause of each of these types of constipation probably is different and the approach to each should be tailored to the specific type of constipation.. Constipation also can alternate with diarrhea. This pattern commonly occurs as part of the irritable bowel syndrome (IBS). At the extreme end of the constipation spectrum is fecal impaction, a condition in which stool hardens in the rectum and prevents the passage of any stool.. The number of bowel movements generally decreases with age. Ninety-five percent of adults have bowel movements between three and twenty-one times per week, and this would be considered normal. The most common pattern is one bowel movement a day, but this pattern is seen in less than 50% of people. Moreover, most ...
