There is no specific type of constipation as mentioned by you. However, if constipation is there one has to increase the intake both soluble and insoluble fibers by taking adequate quantities of green salads, flax seeds or fenugreek seeds and plenty of water. Also increase intake fruits (which are permitted). If still constipation remains mild stool softeners may be used with advise from your doctor.

Hi as you said you are diabetic. Since last 4-5 years. N your sugar levels r with in normal range. You suffer only constipation or say hard stool. Which could be one of the side of antidiabetic drugs. So wat you need to do is. Eat more fibers in the evening. And use powder lactifibre with milk or syp. Lactulose with normal water at night before bed.

Hi, Sorry to learn that you blood sugar levels are not well controlled You require to visit your physician for additional medication to control your blood sugar levels. Doctors will probably add gliptins that will control blood sugar levels without causing hypoglycemia.

Bula Dutta ji, Thanks for the query. I have read the details given. The fasting glucose & HbA1c% are quite high. Therefore, Insulin might have been advised. Plus already there are multiple oral drugs like Glimiperide, Metformin, Acarbose, Vildagliptin & Pioglitazone. WHich means the whole oral range is there. So to attain desired control no further oral drug can really be added. Another important aspect is there is a need to look at her daily dietary intake & extent of exercise to see if any adjustment can be made there to help reduce blood glucose. At this age HbA1c% should be < 7% and fasting should be around 100 mg & PP 150 to 170 mg. Therefore, Insulin must have been suggested. Plus if a long acting analogue like Glargine or Degludec is used, then there very little chance of developing any problem. Still if you have any questions please do come back. Thanks.
