The latest definition of constipation

Many people have had the experience of constipation. Although they have had such experience, they still don't understand the definition of the word. Let's talk about the latest definition of constipation today?

How exactly is constipation? How much is the normal excretion? Are you constipated?

Before judging whether you are constipated and thinking about the solution to constipation, you must first master the actual state of constipation. In the case of Chinese people, it is basically healthy to defecate once a day.

In addition, the amount of defecation at one time will vary according to the food consumption, food quality and personal conditions. It is impossible to say that "not pulling a few grams is constipation" or "not defecating for a few days is constipation". Not much food, of course, sometimes two or three days defecate once, from the medical point of view, this situation can not be called constipation. We prefer to use the hardness of stool or whether there is pain during defecation as an important basis for judgment. Even if we defecate once every three days, if we don't feel pain, the hardness of stool is also common, which is not constipation in medicine.

In short, there are several days without defecation, and defecation when the stool is hard to feel the state of pain, can be said to be 'constipation'.

The term "stool" is very vague. Strictly speaking, it means that the water content in the stool is less than 70%. However, even if it is not constipation in the strict medical terms, it is still not a healthy state if the defecation is not normal. For example, three meals a day, but once in three days, there are less' out 'than' in ', and the stomach will not be uncomfortable.

Therefore, we can generally think that 'irregular defecation every day' is constipation.

So why constipation?

There are the following two conditions can cause constipation: first, within 24 hours, fecal accumulation is insufficient. The main reason is that this kind of people like to eat high calorie food, eat less, like to eat snacks, the key is to eat less fiber rich food, the intestinal peristalsis function gradually weakened until paralysis, the second is unreasonable food - protein and starch food can not eat more, starch cooking food as the main food, less vegetables and fruits, in addition, less stress response and physical activity The way of life is also the factor of constipation formation and aggravation.

Experts pointed out that in the above two cases, food digestion and malabsorption lead to food fermentation and decay in the large intestine. These rotten films stick to the wall of the large intestine, especially in the places where there are many concave convex bends and some parts easy to form crud. When the large intestine can absorb 95% of the water in the intestine, these crud gradually become dry and thick, and become hard for a long time The small excrement of stone, which is full of harmful bacteria and microorganisms, accumulates over the years, and causes serious harm to human health under human body temperature and intestinal environment suitable for reproduction.
