management of constipation in kids
New guidelines from the Canadian Paediatric Society will help management of constipation in kids.
These are aimed at kids with "functional" constipation...usually due to a child withholding bowel movements to avoid pain.
If disimpaction is needed, recommend using oral PEG 3350 (Lax-A-Day, Restoralax, etc) instead of enemas or digital disimpaction. Oral PEG works as well as enemas and is better tolerated.
