Indications for Macrogol
Constipation can be a distressing condition, affecting approximately 12% of the world’s population. There are many causes, ranging from insufficient fiber intake to lack of exercise, and when constipation becomes chronic, it can continue painfully for months.
How laxatives work
Laxatives provide relief from constipation symptoms and act in a variety of ways, including as emollients, contact agents, volumizing agents, and osmotic agents. However, they can also cause side effects. An effective and safe method of treating constipation with minimal side effects is the use of an osmotic laxative containing the active ingredient macrogol.
What advantages does Macrogol have
Macrogol, also known as polyethylene glycol (PEG), has several advantages over other osmotic laxatives. It does not cause habituation and does not require water withdrawal from the surrounding tissues into the colon, thereby preventing dehydration Macrogol also results in higher average stool frequency and less effort during bowel movements.
It does not cause stomach pain, nutrient absorption, flatulence or colon acidity. It can also be combined with electrolytes to minimize ion loss and is effective throughout the colon.
For whom is the medical device suitable
Macrogol is suitable for a wide range of patients, including children two years of age and older, pregnant and lactating women, and patients with cardiovascular disease or renal dysfunction.
Macrogol as a medical product is available in a variety of flavors and is a safe and effective laxative that can relieve the discomfort of constipation. The unflavored versions can also be mixed with juice or other liquids.
