Summary This study found that constipation estimates varied considerably from 9-42%, depending on the criteria used, and there was extensive laxative use. Those who were constipated reported a significantly poorer quality-of-life. Participants could not achieve current dietary recommendations and therefore managing constipation through dietary modification is impractical for many older people.
