December 2019 #DDHChat Recap: Eating to Reduce Constipation

Most of us experience constipation from time to time. This can result from illness, inactivity, travel, medications, and other circumstances. For most people it is acute, meaning it goes away fairly quickly. It can also be a symptom of a bowel disease. Abrupt onset of constipation that persists, is extraordinarily painful, or is accompanied by fever, bleeding, or vomiting should be promptly reported to a doctor.

In recognition of December being Constipation Awareness Month, dietitian Patsy Catsos joined us on Thursday, December 19th at 12:00 PM EST for a discussion on dietary modifications to help reduce constipation.
