I am suffering from constipation since I was 13. I always have taken medicine for that, but nothing worked, and lately, I had not taken any medication. Do you think there is something wrong with me?
Welcome to icliniq.com.
You seem to be suffering from chronic constipation. I would advise you the following:
1. To get a thyroid function test done as hypothyroidism might be the cause behind constipation that you are having. 2. To take laxative like Lactulose in the night only when you are severely constipated. 3. To increase fiber in the diet.
If you have any further query, please ask. Thank you.
