Clinical Trial Summary

The purpose of this study is to determine whether educational intervention (recommandation of adequate fluid intake) is effective as an element supporting the treatment of functional constipation in children.


Clinical Trial Description

Constipation is a common condition in children which affects around 10% of the paediatric population. In 95 % cases it is a functional disorder of the digestive tract, without any organic cause. Recommendations of lifestyle modifications accompanying pharmacological treatment of constipation are very popular among healthcare providers, although there is limited data concerning non-pharmacological treatment methods of this condition. Adequate for age fluid intake is now recommended for patients with constipation. Further research is needed to form stronger recommendations in the future. The purpose of this study is to determine whether educational intervention (recommandation of adequate fluid intake) is effective as an element supporting the treatment of functional constipation in children. ;
