Constipation occurs when the intestines contract or move slowly during digestion. This makes it impossible to remove stool from the digestive system normally. And feces remain in the large intestine for a long time until the water in the feces is reabsorbed. Makes the stool appear dry, hard and larger. As a result, it is difficult to take out of body

There are many factors that can cause constipation, such as: UFABET

Use of certain medicines.

Taking certain medications may have side effects causing constipation, such as antacids that contain aluminum hydroxide compounds. Depression medicine antipsychotic medication Seizure medicine Pain relievers, opioids, diuretics,  and calcium and iron supplements

Blockage within the intestines

Certain health conditions can cause blockages within the colon or rectal area. This makes it difficult for stool to move out of the digestive system and become stuck in the intestines, such as an anal ulcer. Intestinal obstruction, bloating (Ileus), colon cancer or pelvic floor prolapse

Muscle disease

Neuromuscular disease can affect peristalsis of the colon and rectum muscles. Therefore, it may cause feces to remain in the gastrointestinal tract and cause constipation, such as spinal cord injury. Nerve damage from diabetes multiple sclerosis  Parkinson’s disease Including cerebrovascular disease.
