Does flying constipate you?

Question

Does flying constipate you?

Answer

Healthy people can’t suppress the urge to move the bowels for too long no matter the circumstances or time zone. Thus, traveler’s constipation is a marker of latent constipation — a form of hidden constipation that is behind enlarged hemorrhoids, anorectal neuropathy, diverticular disease, megacolon, IBS, PMS, inflammatory bowel disease, colorectal polyps, and many other conditions.
