Constipation is a problem that affects many individuals who have Parkinson's disease (PD). In PD there is a slowing of gastric and bowel motility. A lack of physical exercise or activity,  poor dietary habits, decreased fluid intake, as well as a number of medications can also contribute. It is important to understand how to treat this problem.
