Parents, How Much Do You Know About Constipation?

Would you recognize the signs of constipation in your child?

Many of my patients prove to be severely clogged up — to the complete surprise of their parents. In many cases, the referring pediatrician also did not notice the constipation, so the child did not receive proper treatment.

Take this multiple-choice quiz to test your knowledge of childhood constipation. For each question, there may be more than one correct answer.

At the end of the quiz, you’ll find out the answers and your score. For detailed explanations of each answer, go to the Constipation Quiz page of our website,

OK, let's see how much you know about constipation!
