Many suffer from constipation. What is constipation? Generally, if someone has bowel movements less than three times a week, we call it constipation. Dry and hard stools are also constipated. Today I will show how to prevent constipation.
In this condition, the stool is not cleaned even after sitting on the toilet for a long time. Patients with such symptoms come to us.
Constipation now what to do? If one is constipated in the initial stage, if he eats a lot of water, and vegetables and has regular morning bowel movements; Then it is possible to eliminate constipation in many cases.
In many cases, we give medicines like lactulose to soften the stool. Constipation could not be kept under control, if you eat three spoonfuls of isubgul husk twice a day, drink 10-12 glasses of water every day, take regular walks, sleep regularly in the morning or take full rest, then you can get rid of preventing constipation.
After all, this, if the constipation is not good, sometimes hard stools are stuck in the anus, in that case, we ask to give medicine like glycerin to the anus. If that doesn’t work, then we ask to give an enema.
But don’t just think of this constipation as ‘constipation’. Many people buy various medicines from the pharmacy thinking they are constipated, but many times there are many diseases hidden behind preventing constipation.
Eg: Constipation in children is a disease we call ‘Hasprank’s Disease’. The muscles of the anus contain various nerves, which help the stools to come out of our anus through contraction and expansion. If those nerves are not there i.e. dry up, then this disease happens – Hasprank’s disease.
So if children are constipated for a long time, then a pediatric surgeon specialist or a colon and rectal surgeon specialist should be consulted.
Again, many people find that, earlier, they had normal stools, suddenly constipation appeared, and soft stools are happening again. If such a problem occurs, it can be seen that there may be colon or rectal cancer. So one should not confuse this disease with constipation.
Constipation does not mean you have cancer. But if constipation continues for a long time and if the usual rules are not good then a doctor must be consulted. The doctor takes the patient’s description of the disease, performs various tests; Identifies the cause of constipation, and gives appropriate treatment.
