I'm 19yrs old grl. I hav experiencd constipation 4 past 2 yrs n recently observd constipation cause as a rslt of drinkin milk? Y is this n what shud I do?

Sounds like milk: Sounds like milk is your problem - you may want to leave it out of your daily diet and see if the problem goes away. Add a daily calcium supplement (taken with food) daily if you need the extra calcium. If this doesn't solve the problem, make sure you are eating a healthy diet without processed foods and with plenty of fiber. Then talk to your md.

Your system is out o: As far as the gastritis and slow motility your doctor must tell you what to do. No food at all for 13 days will cause you to lose a bunch of weight. Sounds like you need a good trial of antacid medical treatment. So kits time to quit treating yourself and talk to your doc.

Does risotto cause constipation?

Risotto: Is an italian rice dish. If you have a diet that is high in this type of carbs and is lacking in vegetables, fruits, whole grains and other sources of fiber - constipation is more likely. But risotto does not in and of itself cause constipation.

Could over eating cause constipation?

Could over eating cause constipation?

Overeat/Constipation: Overeating may cause constipation by increasing the intestinal waste. This may lead to improper colon function and distension of the colon possibly affecting the muscle tone and natural peristalsis or wave like motions of the intestine which propel the waste materials towards the anal opening. A well balanced diet high in fiber and water decreases constipation. See your doctor for an exam.

What causes constipation and how can I treat this?

Change your diet and: Fluids. Eat a high fiber diet between 20-25 grams per day, regular meal times and drink 80-100 oz of caffeine free alcohol free fluids daily. If you exercise and should add 20 oz per 30 minutes of strenuous exercise. Some meds contribute to constipation so take the meds with full glass of fluid instead of a sip in addition to the above recommended fluids.

Can kalms cause constipation?

Can kalms cause constipation?

Kalms: Kalms is valerian root extract used to help reduce the effects of stress. It should not cause constipation, but also won't really do anything to help with constipation in my experience. Magnesium added to this may be quite helpful.

Do bananas cause constipation?

Do bananas cause constipation?

They can: I often use bananas as a natural therapy in infants to firm up their runny poo. Along with pasta, apples, bread & some cheeses, these foods tend to slow the stool as it moves thru the intestines. The effect tends to be volume related, so a little may not constipate while a lot may.
