If you’re trying to manage Chronic Idiopathic Constipation (CIC) or Irritable Bowel Syndrome with Constipation (IBS-C), discomfort is probably your “regular.” Even if you’ve tried over-the-counter or prescription treatments, you may still be suffering with constipation or not getting the kind of relief you want.

Finding a solution that gets you out of this cycle of discomfort is important. The first step to doing so is to talk to your doctor about what your treatment goal should be. Download our discussion guide or Poop Troop emoji keyboard to get the conversation started.

The Struggle Is Real

CIC and IBS-C are common amongst adults—but finding relief is not. If you’re fed up with CIC or IBS-C, you’re not alone. In fact, many patients are resigned to their condition and have given up on the idea of it getting better.

Uro-what?!

Uroguanylin (ˈyoŏrōˈgwänəˈlin) is a naturally occurring peptide that helps regulate the amount of fluid in the digestive tract. It’s a tough word to say and may be an even tougher concept to grasp. So, let’s go on a short tour of your bowels to break down what uroguanylin is and how it works.

  • After you eat, your body breaks down your food as it passes through the intestines.
  • Fluid plays an important role in this process. It helps your body absorb your food’s nutrients and create stool from the waste left behind. Not enough fluid may cause constipation, and too much fluid may result in diarrhea.
  • Now here’s where uroguanylin comes in. It’s a naturally occurring peptide that responds to the changes that normally occur within your small intestine to produce the appropriate amount of fluid needed for well-formed bowel movements.

Give Your Poop Some Personality

When you have constipation, how do you let your family, friends and doctor know what you’re going through—both physically and emotionally? It’s a difficult conversation to have. And sometimes words alone just aren’t enough.
