Constipation and CF
Mar 26, 2004
Went to our semi-annual CF clinic today, hoping we'd get some answers as to why our infant has problems with constipation. Unfortunately, all we were told is how odd that is 'cuz CF kids usually have problems with loose, greasy stools. At the beginning, when first getting his enzymes adjusted we had problems like that. But now the poor kid only poops once or twice a day and it's really hard and dry.

Started happening about 4 months ago -- no changes in eating habits really or medication. We've increased his fiber -- prunes, pears and we give him Milk of Mag twice a day.

Have any other CF people had to deal with this issue?
