In brief: Can't go!

General measures will focus on high fiber diet, reasonable intake of fluids and regular aerobic physical activity.
Prunes are pretty effective!

In brief: Fiber.

Constipation has no cure.
We recomend a diet rich in fiber ( vegetables & fruits). Take stool softeners ( daily) and laxatives as necessary ( if no bm in 3 d) if the constipation is new or recent pt. Needs a colonoscopy. Avoid rice or apple associated foods. Increase fluid intake and exercise. Avoid calcium or iron pills. Increase intake of prunes, citrucel. Use suppositories, fleet or fullenemas.
