Understanding

What is constipation ?

Constipation occurs when a delay or difficulty in bowel movements is observed. It can be occasional (travel, stress, pregnancy, etc.) or chronic. Chronic constipation is when the problem persists from at least six to twelve months.

The normal frequency of bowel movements varies from one person to another. It may be from three times a day to three times per week. Constipation occurs when stools are hard, dry and difficult to pass. Generally, this occurs when stools are rare, less than three times a week. However, constipation can occur even in the presence of daily evacuation.

There are two forms of constipation. Transit constipation (or progress constipation); in presence of slow passage of feces within the intestinal tract. Terminal constipation (evacuation constipation); when feces accumulate in the rectum due to poor anorectal motility. The two conditions may coexist in the same person.

What exactly happens?

During digestion, the intestines contract to move food through the digestive tract. This phenomenon is called peristaltic contractions. In presence of constipation, peristalsis is slowed and feces remain in the colon for too long. The longer they stay, the stools become harder and difficult to pass, because a larger amount of water in stools has been reabsorbed by the colon cells.

Also, for some people, a bad synchronization of evacuation reflexes is observed. At time of defecation, the anus muscle (anal sphincter) contracts instead of relaxing, this blocks the passage of stools.

Constipation is usually the result of a poor diet (low in fruits and vegetables and rich in refined grains, sugar and meat) and of an unhealthy lifestyle (insufficient hydration, physical inactivity, stress and anxiety). The presence of hemorrhoids or anal fissures can also trigger constipation, causing people to refrain because of pain caused by defecation.

Constipation can also be a clinical manifestation of several pathologies: diverticulitis, colorectal cancer, hypothyroidism, diabetic neuropathy, Parkinson’s disease, etc. In rare cases, constipation due to Hirschsprung’s disease, which occurs from birth, is attributed to the absence of certain nerve cells in the intestine.

It is important to know that many medications can cause constipation, including some laxatives when taken for long periods, anxiolytics, antidepressants, morphine, codeine, some antispasmodic (anticholinergic), anti-inflammatory, muscle relaxants, some antihypertensive, diuretics, antacids containing aluminum, etc. Some iron supplements may cause constipation.

Finally, constipation can result from allergies or food intolerances including lactose in cow’s milk.
