About Constipation and Diarrhea
Constipation and diarrhea can be viewed as two different ends of the same spectrum. Constipation is a condition in which you have trouble moving your bowels or do not move them frequently. Diarrhea involves too frequent bowel movements. Our specialists can treat both conditions.View transcript
So constipation and diarrhea are actually two different parts of the spectrum. Constipation is where you can either not move your bowels frequently or you have trouble moving your bowels or the consistency is not good. Diarrhea on the other hand could be more frequent bowel movements than expected. At CRSSNY we actually take care of both issues, and we can see you if you have any of these concerns. If you move your bowels less than three times a week or you're having difficulty in straining pushing or having a bowel movement, then you need to see a specialist and here at CRSSNY we take care of those kinds of concerns. On the other hand, if you have issues with moving your bowels multiple times a day, we also see patients that have those concerns. And you can still see us at CRSSNY and we'll be able to help you figure out what the problem is.
