The basic body functioning is the same in humans from the time they are born until the last of their life. But the quality of this functioning differs in all ages and results in different metabolic rates, organ health, and more…
Evidently, humans are at their weakest when they cross the age of 60. One of the body functions which change drastically during old age is the bowel movement. Doctors at Bansal Global Hospital agree that many of their elderly patients have complained regarding constipation.
So, it can be easily termed as common in old age people. The reasons can be various including:
- Certain medicines interfere with the bowel movement.
- Poor diet.
- Irregular bowel habits from a young age (or adulthood)
- Metabolic abnormalities
Other than these there can be individual body issues that need to be identified by specialists. Identifying the reason behind these small issues is the key to detecting bigger problems and getting rid of them on time.
We have special arrangements and facilities for old age patients at Bansal Global Hospital. To book an appointment, please check this section for contact details.
