Constipation– defined as infrequent bowel movements or stool that is difficult
to pass, is highly variable from person to person.
‘Normal’ frequency of the bowel range from one bowel movement a day to
one per week. If once a week is normal for an individual, no intervention is
needed. Cause for concern arises when one goes to great degrees to have
more frequent bowel movements or when persistent changes to bowel
movement frequency or consistency is experienced.
Occasional constipation can be normal. Bowel movement are dependent on
many things, including regular exercise, which helps stimulate the colon to
contract. Fluid intake and diet also play an important role in stool consistency.
High fiber diets lead to bulkier stools which are more easily moved by the
muscles in the colon, while low- residue diets may contribute to constipation
as they result in smaller stool.
There are other less common causes of constipation, including slow transit
time or digestion in the gastrointestinal tract, pelvic floor issues or cancer.
Constipation may also result from using laxatives.
Fiber can help prevent constipation. Occasional constipation can be treated or
even prevented by eating a high fiber diet. We need 25-40 grams of daily fiber,
but a typical Indian doesn’t get more than 10-15 grams per day. Slowly adding
a fiber supplement to your diet, about 6 additional grams daily every two
weeks, is a safe way to acclimate your body to increased fiber.
