Constipation – adults

  

Constipation is a common condition that affects people of all ages. It can mean that you're not passing stools regularly or you're unable to completely empty your bowel.


Recommendations for suspected Constipation

Pre-referral investigations:

  • FBC, ESR, CRP
  • Serum calcium
  • Thyroid function test
  • Tissue transglutaminase IgA antibody (IgA-tTG) to rule out coeliac disease

Referral threshold – failure of medical management in primary care
