Hello. I'm Dr Chip
Has this been a problem in the past?

Customer: replied 2 days ago.
No only sometimes a bit of constipation I was told due to the medication for diabetes
Customer: replied 2 days ago.
No only sometimes constipation

For now I suggest oral probiotics, a tablespoon of olive oil orally twice a day, and plenty of fluids

If that doesn't give you a bowel movement by tomorrow you'll need to see your doctor again

Please let me know if you need any more information
