Factors that cause frequent constipation

Constipation can be easily cured with simple homemade tips and tricks but if symptoms persist longer, the condition needs immediate consideration. Here are some possibilities that can cause frequent constipation along with their treatments.

Hard stools or decreased bowel motions could result in constipation. Lack of a fibrous diet or dehydration or changes in dietary habits contributes to this. Constipation that persists for more than 3 weeks with abdominal discomfort and bloody stools needs immediate consideration and professional consultation. Frequent constipation with chronic pain makes it difficult for the sufferers to carry out their day-to-day activities. Let’s take a look at some of the most common causes of constipation so that we can protect ourselves against this. 

Dehydration – Water is essential for digestion. Dehydration or insufficient hydration slows down the process of digestion. We all should consume around 8 glasses or 2 liters of water daily.

Dietary mistake – Lack of fiber in your daily consumption is the most common cause of dietary-related constipation. Eat fiber-rich foods like whole grains and dry fruits. Consuming too much dairy products or meat invites constipation. 

High alcohol consumption – Drinking too much alcohol could lead to constipation. Alcohol in any form increases esophageal movement while lowering the lower esophageal sphincter's pressure. This implies that less pressure is needed to maintain stomach contents. Acid reflux may occur as a result.

Diabetes – In diabetes, the body stops making enough insulin which prevents your body from metabolizing sugar in the blood. Diabetes is a high blood sugar level that can cause diabetic neuropathy or nerve damage. Nerves are responsible for digestion and their damage can cause constipation.

Hypothyroidism – Less production of thyroid hormone by thyroid glands negatively impacts body metabolic rate. The metabolism gets slowed down thereby resulting in constipation. 

Regular exercise – Exercise is essential for the smooth functioning of the body system. Exercise facilitates bowel movements. You can do any kind of low-intensity exercise such as walking 30 minutes a day for 5 days a week.  

Mood disorder – Unstable mood or mental health can alter the entire routine. We get physically inactive, binge on unhealthy eating, or change our daily routine. Constipation is arising from such dietary changes and lifestyle changes. 

With healthy eating and exercising regularly, constipation gets cured with simple tips and tricks or with home remedies. But if the symptoms persist longer or the patient doesn’t feel better in 1-2 days, consult a doctor for the right advice.
