Mayo Clinic Talks Episode 45: Constipation, This Too Shall Pass
Mayo Clinic Talks Podcast
|This week we’re talking about constipation. What are some of the causes of chronic idiopathic constipation? Are there any medications which can cause constipation or make constipation worse? When would a patient’s complaint of constipation raise your suspicion of something ominous causing the symptoms? Do prunes actually help? Today we’re joined by Dr. Amy Foxx-Orenstein, a Mayo Clinic Physician in the Division of Gastroenterology and Hepatology.|
