Constipation can be caused by a number of different factors, including lack of diet, exercise, inadequate hydration, medication, or even hormonal imbalances.
Diets high in white flour, fried foods, refined sugars, cheese, and soft drinks are causes of constipation in some people. Sedentary lifestyles also contribute to constipation. Treatment of constipation is usually based on increased dietary fiber and supplementation with bulking agents; exercise, and habit training. However, often only partial relief is obtained and many people use laxatives on a regular basis without medical supervision.more about constipation

Constipation is a symptom of many diseases and is a collective term, used to imply infrequent stools, incomplete bowel movements, straining, bloating, and hard lumpy stool. Treatment of constipation is usually based on increased dietary fiber and supplementation with bulking agents; exercise, and habit training. However, often only partial relief is obtained and many people use non-bulking agents, or laxatives, on a regular basis without medical supervision. Chronic use of laxatives is often not a safe choice for people as it can lead to multiple medical complications.
If constipation lasts for a long period of time with pain and ultimately the inability to have a bowel movement, it’s time to see a doctor. Some people may experience some blood when passing hard , lumpy stool, but when there is copious blood, or black tarry stools, that could be a sign of a more serious problem, and time to see a doctor. Fortunately, most people do not reach that state of incapacitation.
Constipation is defined as a decrease in the frequency of passing formed stools. Constipation may be characterized by stools that are hard and difficult to pass and is usually caused by disease or ailments such as diabetes, intestinal obstruction, spinal cord compression, excessive calcium levels, a lack of potassium, or kidney problems.
Common physical symptoms of constipation include:
The typical treatment plan for anyone experiencing constipation includes increasing the amount of fiber in her or his diet. Foods high in fiber include beans, fruits, vegetables, and whole grain breads. It's important to increase daily fiber intake slowly, though, as your body may not tolerate a drastic change. It's also important to drink plenty of water as dehydration may be a component of constipation. In addition to dietary changes, it's important to increase your physical activity when trying to overcome constipation.
