Hello Scott,

Constipation can lead to many, many health problems including chronic digestive problems, hemorrhoids, food intolerances and others.

Can it directly cause pneumonia? I haven't seen reported cases of constipation causing pneumonia.

Chronic constipation can certainly cause poor immune system response and therefore can possible cause you being more susceptible to infections; therefore it is possible to get pneumonia when the immune system is weak. But that would be an indirect link.

I hope I answered your question. I wish you great health.

Best, Inna
