Surprising Causes of Constipation

Lesser known causes of Crohn syndrome

Constipation can be the indication of several factors such as a low fiber diet, repetitive avoidance of bowel movements (often known as stool withholding), inadequate water consumption, and lack of exercises. The lesser known causes of constipation include certain potential disease conditions as well as side-effects of some medications and supplements that are commonly recommended.

Crohn disease causes

Inflammatory bowel disease that affects gastrointestinal tract is known as Crohn's disease or Crohn syndrome. Here are a few surprising causes of Crohn’s disease:

  • Hypothyroidism, or an underactive thyroid gland, can cause constipation as it slows down the metabolic process
  • Painkillers can increase the risk of constipation, the reason why they have to be consumed along with a general laxative.
  • Chocolate
  • Though vitamins are harmless, certain components such as calcium and iron can cause constipation
  • Overuse of laxatives
  • Overuse of cheese and other low-fiber/high-fat foods
  • Constant use of antidepressants
  • Antacids are good to fight heartburn, but might cause constipation
  • High blood pressure
  • Use of antihistamines
  • Constipation is common during pregnancy and childbirth
  • Diabetes and neurological illnesses

IBD and constipation

Inflammatory bowel disease conditions are not limited to Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis, as the umbrella term indicates several autoimmune disease conditions that share a set of common symptoms such as diarrhoea, stomach pain, cramps, nausea, vomiting, rectal bleeding, fever, weight loss, and malnutrition. As these non-specific signs cannot help diagnose and distinguish the exact disease condition, clinicians recommend differential diagnosis IBD tests to detect and identify autoimmune disease without delay.

While acute diarrhoea is a common sign that indicates inflammatory bowel disease conditions, some patients might experience constipation as well. When it comes to ulcerative colitis conditions, constipation is an indication of the aggravating inflammation in the rectum. However, indications of constipation among Crohn’s disease patients is the sign of a major obstruction in the small intestine. That said, having constipation alone is unlikely a sign of inflammatory bowel disease.
