(HealthDay News) -- Most everyone is constipated at one time or another. The U.S. National Digestive Diseases Information Clearinghouse defines the condition as occurring when a person has a bowel movement fewer than three times per week.
The agency offers these suggestions to help prevent constipation:
  • Eat a high-fiber diet rich in whole grains, bran, fruits, vegetables and beans.
  • Drink plenty of fluids.
  • Get some exercise every day.
  • If possible, don't ignore the urge to have a bowel movement.
  • Use laxatives or enemas only if your doctor recommends them.
