Hello and welcome to JA. Dr Saleem here. Will be answering you shortly
Well diabetics can have problems with the motility of gut . You will need to take stool softeners or laxatives for constipation. As constipation isnt a constant feature and it alternates with loose stool ,you should take ispaghula with water atleast twice a day (available OTC ). You can also take lactulose 30 ml when you have resistant constipation.
Low dose amitriptyline / imipramine has been found to be very effective if added to other regular medications.
Good sugar control is essential for managing all diabetes related complications.
