Q:

How can constipation affect my health?

A:

Aside from the emotional stress and anxiety chronic constipation can cause, it can also negatively affect your health. If you are not having regular, normal bowel movements, there can be issues with absorption of nutrition in your body and this can cause weight loss. You can also experience low iron (or anemia) and possibly blood in the stool. If you are having these symptoms, you should visit your doctor.
