Constipation: Proper Toilet Sitting Position
Constipation is one of the most common gas-trointestinal disorders.
It is refer to either very slow movement of food residues through the colon (slow transit constipation) or difficulty passing bowel movements after they reach the rectum (outlet dysfunction).
The common symptoms of constipation are:
•Hard or lumpy stools
•Feeling that there is a blockage in the rectum that prevents bowel movements from passing
•Having to press around the anal opening
•Less than three bowel movements per week
But in some circumstances, trouble passing stools can indicate a more serious health problem.
Constipation regularly accompanying any of these 6 signs could probably indicate something more serious and you should consider consulting a doctor.
1. Ongoing cramps, bloating and intermittent diarrhea. (This could be a sign of Irritable Bowel Syndrome)
2. Lumps inside and around your bottom (anus)
(This could be signs of piles of hemorrhoids)
3. Constant abdominal pain (This could be a sign of diverticulitis disease)
4. Nausea, vomiting and fever (This could be a sign of diverticulitis)
5. Rectal Bleeding (This could be a sign of diverticulitis and bowel cancer)
6. Unintentional weight loss (This could indicate malabsorption issues or in rare cases colorectal cancer)
Please note that this is just examples and not to be used a a diagnosis. Constipation could be corrected and prevented if given proper attention, lifestyle modification and medication. Among them are increasing dietary fiber in your diet, exercise to promote blood circulation and changing your toilet position.
