I am 67 years old and having diabetes & HYPERTENSION since last 15 years. I am taking treatment for these problems. However, of late, I have developed some gastric problems and suffering from IBS since last one month. Either severe constipation or Diarrhea is causing much inconvenience and weakness. What is treatment for this please.
