Constipation is not a disease but a symptom of an underlying cause. It is more common
in children and old people. The cause can be different for children and adults.
In children, it can be due to lack of fiber in milk, dehydration, malnutrition,
structural defects, inflammatory bowel disease, infant botulism, etc.
Adults suffer from it because of low fiber intake, sedentary lifestyle, diabetes,
hyperparathyroidism, hypothyroidism, pregnancy, anxiety, stress or drugs like antacids,
Constipation is controlled by treating the underlying cause, increasing fiber in the diet,
and with medicines.
