Hi Anon

Thanks for your question!

Diabetes and constipation often go hand in hand, unfortunately.

A diet very high in fiber should help. Also, your magnesium levels should be checked. They are often rather low in diabetes and contribute to constipation.

How long has this been going on? What are you currently doing to treat this problem?
