HEALTH EDUCATION ADVICE

What you need to know

Constipation is defined as a decrease in the frequency of bowel movements to less than 3 per week.

This definition does not constitute an absolute rule. In fact, the usual duration of transit (food travels through the intestine) and therefore the frequency of stools varies widely from one individual to another. It is therefore important to take into account the feeling of discomfort or the disorders associated with this slowed transit.

In case of constipation, there may be discomfort in the abdomen (belly). It is difficult or even painful to have a bowel movement. The expulsion of the stool seems incomplete. The stools are hard, not very abundant. Cramping or bloating may occur.

Occasional constipation is usually due to a change in daily habits (travel abroad, change in diet, stress,...) or to "holding back".

Eating habits and lifestyle (sedentary lifestyle) can also be the cause of an imbalance in bowel function that can lead to constipation over a longer period of time (chronic constipation).

Other situations are likely to lead to constipation: taking certain medications (certain painkillers, antidepressants, cough suppressants, aluminium-based antacids, etc.); in women: certain periods of the menstrual cycle, pregnancy or the menopause.

What not to do

You should not take constipation treatment on your own if:

- You have bowel or colon disease (e.g. Crohn's disease, ulcerative colitis),

- You have severe kidney disease, severe dehydration,

- You have pain in your belly for which the cause is not known,

- You are pregnant or breastfeeding,

- You suspect that your constipation is related to taking certain medications.

Treatment for constipation should not be continued if symptoms persist or if constipation is accompanied by other disorders such as: persistent pain in the stomach, alternating episodes of constipation/diarrhoea, mucus, involuntary defecation (involuntary loss of stools).

In all these cases, ask your pharmacist or doctor for advice.

WARNING SIGNS: If constipation is accompanied by: blood in the stools, vomiting and cessation of gas (obstruction), severe stomach pains, fever, weight loss.

It is necessary to consult your doctor, as these signs may be symptoms of a more serious illness.

What you can do yourself

Isolated constipation, although unpleasant, is harmless.

A few simple lifestyle tips can often facilitate intestinal transit and the emission of stools:

⇒ Eat green vegetables, rich in fiber, and fresh fruit, which promote transit.

You can also consume, gradually and without abuse, bread or biscuits with bran or whole grains.

Avoid foods that are too fatty and too sweet.

D rink enough and regularly during the day (at least 1.5 liters/day): consume water, fruit juices and soups as much as you like;

Go to the bathroom at a fixed time (usually 30 to 60 minutes after meals) without making too much effort to "push". This will help your body get used to a regular schedule. It is also important that you take your time.

⇒ Don't forget gymnastics and physical exercise such as walking, which are excellent ways to combat constipation.
