December is Constipation Awareness Month

We recognize December as Constipation Awareness Month to increase public awareness about this common yet often misunderstood condition.

Constipation is a condition that presents differently in each person. Most people experience constipation from time to time, however, constipation that is chronic (constant or long-lasting) can significantly impact the lives of individuals.
