Understanding Constipation - From occasional issues to chronic conditions

Constipation is a common gastrointestinal issue that is defined by difficult or infrequent bowel movements. It is estimated that more than 80 percent of Americans suffer from occasional constipation issues, but for some patients, constipation is a chronic issue.

While normal bowel movements range from a few times a day to more than three times a week, constipation is often characterized as fewer than three bowel movements a week and/or the production of hard or dry stools. Constipation is mostly a temporary issue, but when it becomes more frequent, chronic or severe, Dr. Murrell should be consulted for some of the most comprehensive constipation treatments Los Angeles offers.

What causes Constipation?

Constipation may be as simple as not eating enough fiber or drinking enough water to a more complex cause, ranging from obstructions in the bowel, complications from spinal cord injuries or as a symptom of health conditions such as diabetes, thyroid disease, multiple sclerosis, or Parkinson's disease. Certain medication also may cause constipation or slowed bowel movements.

When to see Dr. Murrell for Constipation

When constipation symptoms such as decreased or difficult bowel movements persists for more than three weeks, it is time to book an appointment with Dr. Murrell, a Los Angeles proctologist. It is important to note if a patient is having bloody stools. If this is the case, Dr. Murrell should be contacted immediately.
