Comprehensive Treatment for Constipation at Medica
Constipation is a condition in which the person passes hard stool that is difficult-to-expel. It usually occurs when the colon absorbs too much water from the food it is digesting. As a result, the slower food travels through the digestive tract, the more water is absorbed, resulting in dry, hard feces. The bowels can become extremely uncomfortable as a result of this. Constipation affects 6% of the Indian population, and it is linked to a number of comorbidities. If you have significant pain, blood in your stools, or constipation that lasts more than three weeks, you should contact our specialists at Medica.
