"Before advising or reassuring a patient about defecatory habits, the physician must exclude serious disease by rectal and sigmoidscopic examinations and by barium enema when indicated. Everyone with constipation should have a full physical examination, including a rectal examination to exclude masses. CBC, thyroid stimulating hormone fasting glucose, and electrolytes are also appropriate for some patients. Those with resistant, prolonged, or unusual symptoms may need a colonoscopy. Whenever possible, medications that may cause constipation should be stopped."
