An Inconvenient and Delicate Problem in Children and Adolescents

Date: February 2021

This delicate problem is not very convenient to talk about, but everyone is familiar with it. According to the International Foundation for Functional Gastrointestinal Disorders, 3-5% of visits to pediatricians are caused by complaints of constipation.

Chronic constipation is observed in 8.9% of children. In almost 50% of cases, the illness continues into adolescence and adulthood, of which 20% negatively affect the quality of life and social adaptation.

The project “Our Health Is in Our Hands” of the UWCF’s program “Walking to the Health Land”, together with Arterium pharmaceutical company, provides help to those who need it most.

If your little angel suffers from constipation, it is imperative to use laxatives. One of these is Legkolax – drug of domestic production which recently appeared on the pharmaceutical market.

The Arterium Corporation has launched a new product – Legkolax. This drug is intended for the symptomatic treatment of constipation and available in the form of a powder for oral solution; approved for use both in adults and children from 6 months and over.

We are grateful to our partners who, in this difficult time of pandemic, take care of their little angels: Obukhiv City and District Organisation of the Red Cross Society of Ukraine, Dobrovita Charitable Foundation (Dnipro), Zhytomyr City Children’s Public Organisation Vse Robymo Sami (“We Do It All by Ourselves”), NGO “Mykolaiv Regional Organisation of Leaders of Youth Self-Government “YOUTH IS THE FUTURE OF THE NATION””, NGO Vira V Dyvo (“Faith in the Miracle”), Kyiv. A big thanks to everyone who joined the good deed in this difficult time, because it is easy to do good when there are friends around us.
