Abstract

Constipation is one of the most frequent non-motor symptoms of Parkinson disease (PD) and it may be ignored by PD patients, leading to this problem not to be reported in time. The relationships between constipation and demographic variables, motor symptoms and other non-motor symptoms of PD are still unknown. PD patients were evaluated by diagnostic criteria of functional constipation in Rome III and divided into PD with constipation (PD-C) and PD with no constipation (PD-NC) groups. PD patients were assessed by rating scales of motor symptoms and other non-motor symptoms, activity of daily living and quality of life. The frequency of constipation in PD patients was 61.4%, and 24.5% of PD patients had constipation before the onset of motor symptoms. PD-C group had older age and age of onset, longer disease duration, more advanced disease stage, and more severe motor symptoms and non-motor symptoms, including worse cognition and emotion, poorer sleep quality, severer autonomic symptoms, fatigue and apathy. Binary Logistic regression analysis showed that the age, H-Y stage, depression, anxiety and autonomic dysfunction increased the risk of constipation in PD patients. Constipation exerted serious impact on the activity of daily living and quality of life in PD patients.
