Q. Requirements of various nutrients in constipation?

The requirements of various nutrients are not altered in constipation. It is essentially a normal balanced diet (normal RDA's) with modification in fibre and fluid intake. The intake of fibre should be increased. High fibre foods should be given freely.

When changes in diet and activity patterns do not improve constipation, further evaluation is warranted and the need for drugs prescribed by the physician may be necessary.
