  • Constipation

    Constipation occurs when bowel movements become less frequent and stools become difficult to pass. It happens most often due to changes in diet or routine, or due to inadequate intake of fiber. You should call your doctor if you have severe pain, blood in your stools, or constipation that lasts longer than three weeks.


  • Diagnosing and Treating Constipation

    Constipation is a big problem that patients just don’t want to talk about with their  Local family Physician doctor. It’s often embarrassing and they just don’t know how to bring it up. Based on some new studies on patient self-reporting, the prevalence of chronic constipation can be anywhere from 10-20 percent.



    Chronic constipation is a challenging problem because it affects one’s quality of life. It can cause emotions such as frustration, anxiety, embarrassment and stress. I think that chronic constipation definitely is important to speak about with your family doctor.
