Tóm tắt

This cross-sectional study aimed to investigate the factors associated with constipation among elderly patients with Parkinson’s disease (PD). The participants were recruited from the National Geriatric Hospital between July to September 2020. Constipation was diagnosed by using Bristol stool classification and Rome IV criteria. A total of 133 Parkinson older patients were enrolled in the study. In multivariable regression model, increased odds of constipation were significantly associated with low water consumption (adjusted OR 4.55), low vegetable consumption (adjusted OR 6.16) and dependent activities of daily living (ADL) (adjusted OR 3.98). ADL needs to be regularly assessed and water and vegetable consumption should be closely monitored in older PD patients in order to improve health and reduce risk of constipation.
