Patient question: Condition description: Female 27 years old. I have been suffering from constipation for six or seven years, accompanied by anal fissure, and have never been treated. Eat a lot, but it takes only four or five days to have defecation. Constipation causes anal fissure to form a vicious circle
Hope to provide help: Should I treat constipation first, or anal fissure? Which Chinese or Western medicine is better to treat my habitual constipation? Can you give a cure?
Patient question: What kind of checkups are usually done for constipation? Do I need to do a lot of instrument checks if I see a Chinese medicine doctor?
Constipation can be a single disease or a manifestation of other diseases. There are many reasons for constipation, and the symptomatic treatment was effective at the time, and the constipation still occurs after the drug is stopped.
I recently consulted a female patient with constipation for more than 10 years. She lives in the cardiovascular ward of the internal medicine department. Over the past 10 years, she has undergone two hemorrhoid surgeries due to difficulty in defecation. Now it is still very laborious and painful to defecate. Today's thyroid function test showed that the patient had severe hypothyroidism. Thyroid hormone is a kind of metabolic hormone. This hormone decreases the body's metabolism too slowly, so it is difficult to defecate. The patient’s family members said: In recent years, no one has reminded to check thyroid function after taking constipation medicine all day long.
I think that regardless of Chinese or Western medicine, you should first find out the cause of constipation in order to have a good effect.
