Possible causes of constipation
Most of the causes of minor bowel movements can be found in poor living habits. An unbalanced diet high in trans fats, sugar, salt, simple carbohydrates, and low in fibre can lead to constipation and a feeling of not passing stools completely. Often the problem also occurs due to insufficient fluid intake and insufficient physical activity. However, constipation can also be caused by taking certain medications, such as antidepressants, certain analgesics, iron supplements, etc., or by various diseases such as thyroid disease, diabetes, irritable bowel syndrome, chronic inflammatory disease, haemorrhoids, etc. We can also make our intestines lazy by taking too many laxatives, and as a result, become constipated.
