What are the methods of implanting senile constipation?
Many elderly people are affected by senile constipation. Why does constipation become a common disease in the elderly?
According to relevant survey data, about 28% of people who are over 60 years old often have constipation?
So why are older people prone to constipation?
Is there any good way to prevent it?
Let’s take a closer look.
The reason why the elderly are prone to constipation is mainly due to the following reasons: 1 The visceral function of the elderly has undergone physiological decline, resulting in decreased peristaltic ability, which may lead to the retention of feces in the body and excretion: 2 elderly rectal and abdominal musclesAtrophy has occurred, muscle tension is low, resulting in weak bowel movements, resulting in difficult discharge of feces; 3 the activity of the elderly is reduced, and the diet is too fine, the cumulative fiber content in the food, easily lead to difficulty in defecation.
Older people have constipation. If they can be treated early, it is not terrible, and it will not cause an accident.
However, if left untreated, it is likely to cause serious consequences for the elderly.
Why is this so?
This is because the elderly often have high blood pressure, arteriosclerosis and coronary heart disease.
Hypertension, cerebral arteriosclerosis and constipation often, if the force is too strong during defecation, resulting in muscle tension, vasoconstriction, resulting in sudden rise in blood pressure; at the same time, due to the force of defecation, the pressure of the patient’s chest and abdominal cavity will also expand,The blood is rushed to the blood vessels in the brain, causing a sharp increase in intracranial pressure, resulting in cerebral vascular rupture and cerebral hemorrhage.
In addition, when the constipation of the elderly defecation, if the sudden force, will increase due to abdominal pressure, mental stress causes the body to have a stress response, causing temporary myocardial lesions, leading to cardiac arrhythmia or myocardial infarction, and even sudden death.
Therefore, the elderly must be aware of constipation. Once they have constipation, they should be treated promptly.
So as not to cause various accidents.
Then, how to treat and prevent constipation in the elderly can be divided into functional constipation and secondary constipation.
Functional constipation refers to primary, persistent constipation caused by non-systemic diseases or internal diseases.

Adjusting the diet The elderly should eat more foods containing more cellulose, such as crude flour, flour rice, corn, celery, leeks, spinach and fruits, to increase fiber content, stimulate and promote peristalsis.
Sesame and walnut kernels have a moisturizing effect, and the elderly can also eat more.
Appropriate multi-drinking water It is best to drink a cup of warm water or honey water every morning on an empty stomach to increase intestinal peristalsis and promote bowel movements.
Older people should also drink more water, and don’t wait until they are thirsty.

For the elderly who have been bedridden for a long time due to illness, the family can give them an abdominal massage, and gently push the right upper abdomen to the left lower abdomen to promote their own peristalsis.
Staying optimistic, emotionally nervous, worried and other negative emotions can cause or aggravate constipation.
Therefore, the elderly should always maintain a good mood, do not get angry and get angry, complications and constipation occur.
