Of the techniques listed previously, it could be one single remedy, or all of them in combination that helps you to achieve a healthy, normal bowel movement schedule. The worst thing that you could do is ignore the constipation and allow it to exacerbate the underlying condition. In cases where constipation is left unchecked for too long, a serious condition called toxic megacolon can develop.
It is never good to wait on symptoms and problems that arise as a result of ulcerative colitis. Part of maintaining a high quality of life and keeping a handle on the condition is being proactive to treat or resolve issues as the present themselves. In any case, as soon as you notice constipation, be in communication with your doctor, and keep track of your body’s nuances and changing patterns. Only by knowing your body well can you manage and keep ulcerative colitis in check.
