Does child often constipation affect intellectual development?

For children, sedentary stool can reduce brain function and affect children's intellectual development. If feces accumulate in the intestinal tract for a long time, they will ferment again and produce a large number of toxic substances. If they cannot be excreted in time, they may have adverse effects on the human nervous system. It can cause drowsiness, bad breath, dry tongue, headache, abdominal distension, cardiovascular, liver and kidney diseases, rheumatoid arthritis and even cancer.

Slow response to chronic constipation

In children's diet and brain building, Japanese scholar Yoshio Iino pointed out that children with constipation will become "dull". In his research, he found that children aged 2-6 with chronic constipation are not focused, lack of patience, sleepy, like crying, slow to respond to changes in the outside world, do not like to talk, do not like to make friends. However, within a few days after their defecation was unobstructed by drug treatment, their mood improved significantly and their reactions to "dullness" were alleviated. However, most of these children are soon constipated and return to the original kind of stupidity. He believes that children with frequent constipation will feel abdominal distension and discomfort, but because they can't express their discomfort, they can't attract the attention of their parents. Their attention is too much focused on constipation and discomfort, so they will be indifferent to the outside world and 'dull'.

The reason of children's constipation is obvious changes in diet and life. Those who do not accept breast-feeding, most of the diet is milk, sugar based, and did not pay attention to add beneficial defecation complementary food, often produce constipation in infancy. To early childhood, if the market fine soft food for children's staple food, constipation is more serious.

Irregular sleep leads to constipation

Those who are spoiled since childhood and lack regular sleep, especially those who don't sleep at night and sleep more during the day, are most likely to have constipation. In addition, the lack of regular (especially morning) defecation, constipation will also occur.

If you want to make the children who are dull because of constipation become smart and lively, you should first cure constipation. Parents must be fully aware of the adverse effects of constipation on children's health, especially on children's mental and emotional status. After excluding congenital physiological factors and acquired education factors, we should carefully observe their defecation.

Develop morning defecation habit

If long-term constipation is found in children, the real cause should be found out. At this time, the treatment of children with constipation should also pay attention to improving diet is a key point. Control the consumption of Cereals, cakes, biscuits and other commercially available children's food; induce them to drink more water; carrots, vegetables, bamboo shoots, potatoes, corn and other fiber food should be the common table dishes. In addition, it's important to change your living habits. Cultivate their good habits of going to bed early and getting up early and defecating in the morning. After a period of time, constipation will be improved or cured. If constipation is particularly serious, cathartic can be used under the guidance of a doctor. However, it is not allowed to use cathartic for a long time. Otherwise, constipation will not be eliminated and new problems will be added.
