I have constipation because I am getting old
Is it a Myth or a Fact? Find out below
Constipation is a very common bowel problem. As many as 2% of the US population is affected. It accounts for about 3 million physician consultations each year. Almost half a billion dollars is spent each year on laxatives alone. The prevalence of constipation increases as we grow older and it increases exponentially as we go past our sixties. There are multiple reasons for this increase. These include use of constipating medications, decreased exercise as well as simultaneous occurrence of non-digestive diseases affecting the gut. The maturing process by itself is not a significant contributor.
Constipation is a common gastrointestinal problem. People who experience
constipation have infrequent bowel movements, pass hard stools or strain
during bowel movements.
