The wind is high and the material is dry
Autumn is the season when anorectal disease is prone to occur.
Due to the dry air in autumn, many people will have symptoms such as dry mouth, dry stools, and dry stools. Often, constipation is the main cause of hemorrhoids.
For hemorrhoids, many people are too lazy to pay attention to it, and drag on again and again.
Professor Ren Donglin, vice president of the Gastroenterology and Anus Hospital affiliated to Sun Yat-sen University, pointed out that hemorrhoids account for about 87% of total anorectal diseases.
Patients with hemorrhoids who experience pain, bleeding, and prolapse of the anus should go to the anorectal specialist hospital or regular anorectal specialist hospital as early as possible.
At the same time, those who have blood in the stool should pay attention not to think of it as a hemorrhoid problem, but also to guard against other causes, such as rectal cancer and ulcerative colitis.
Pay attention to your diet and eat less spicy hot pot. After the autumn, the hot pot restaurant will be lively again.
Professor Ren reminded those who have constipation or hemorrhoids “precursor”, do not covet hot pot spicy stimulation, because often eating spicy food can cause visceral and perianal blood vessels to expand, causing anorectal diseases such as hemorrhoids.Gastrointestinal upset and constant diarrhea can also increase the anal burden and induce hemorrhoids.
Professor Ren Donglin reminded that hot pot should not be eaten often. It is best to drink some hot herbal tea when eating hot pot.
Many people will have dry stools in the autumn. You can adjust your diet, drink more water, light tea, and eat more radish, pear, lily, white fungus and other foods to provide sufficient moisture to the body.
It is also necessary to appropriately increase foods containing vitamins and cellulose, such as coarse grains, beans and vegetables, to increase intestinal motility and prevent constipation.
Those with constipation should eat foods with heat-clearing, cooling-blood, laxative effects, such as black sesame, honey, banana, kiwi, yogurt and so on.
Professor Ren, who is prone to getting sedentary office workers, pointed out that patients with hemorrhoids are mostly sedentary and long standing, such as office clerks, accountants, computer operators, editors, drivers, teachers, and so on.
Sedentary office workers, because of sitting for a long time, cause abdominal blood flow to slow down, blood circulation is blocked, the rectal venous plexus is prone to expand, blood stasis, and hemorrhoids are formed.
Especially sitting on soft sofas and seats for a long time, blood circulation is more likely to be blocked, which can induce or aggravate the condition of hemorrhoids.
Therefore, it is recommended that office workers choose harder seats, and should work up for about 10 minutes when working for a long time. Increasing exercise is the best way to prevent hemorrhoids.
In addition to those who are sedentary and long standing, the following types of people are also prone to hemorrhoids-1.
Pregnant women, because of oppression of the fetus, the rectal and anal blood flow will be impaired; 2.
Those who have irregular daily life, such as overeating often, like spicy food and alcohol; 3.
Those who do not have good bowel habits, such as reading books and newspapers when using the toilet.
The habit of reading in the toilet is bound to prolong the defecation time, which is likely to cause anal congestion and increased abdominal pressure, affect anorectal and venous return, and cause hemorrhoids.
Blood in the stool is not necessarily a problem of hemorrhoids. Common symptoms of hemorrhoids include bleeding, pain, falling sensation, itching of the anus, prolapse of the anus, etc. These symptoms are usually mild at the beginning, and if left untreated, the disease gradually worsens.
For example, prolapse of the anus can be accepted naturally, but it is difficult to accept it in severe cases, and even incarceration, acute extensive thrombosis, hemorrhage and necrosis appear.
Although hemorrhoids are not life-threatening diseases, some uncomfortable symptoms (such as anal pain, itching, etc.) brought by hemorrhoids can affect people’s emotions and hinder learning and work.
In particular, internal hemorrhoids are accompanied by bleeding, which can cause symptoms such as anemia and malnutrition when the blood volume is high.
Over time, it is also easy to cause mucosal erosion and infection. In severe cases, it can even form diseases such as abscesses and anal fistulas around the anus.
Professor Ren pointed out that patients with mild symptoms can completely use diet conditioning or medication under the guidance of a specialist to relieve symptoms.
Hemorrhoid patients should not go to some irregular medical institutions for the so-called “curative hemorrhoids” surgery, in order to avoid excessive treatment or improper surgery, which may cause excessive anal trauma and affect anal function, and even severe cases may even threaten life.
Professor Ren specially reminded that many people think of hemorrhoids as soon as they encounter blood in the stool, which has not attracted enough attention.
In fact, there are many diseases that cause stool bleeding, such as rectal cancer and ulcerative colitis.
Many people with rectal cancer think they are suffering from hemorrhoids and take it lightly, delaying their condition and missing the best opportunity for treatment.
Therefore, as soon as blood is found in the stool, it should be checked at the hospital to prevent it before it happens.

Anal lifting exercises can be performed at any time, and can be done at office, while driving, while watching TV, and before going to bed.
Keep the anus clean: Rinse the perianal area with warm water afterwards and massage the anus with a stream of water.
During the onset of hemorrhoids, a hot bath can be used to promote blood circulation in the anus.
Self-massage: Hemorrhoids are the result of local blood stasis. Massage of Changqiang (front of tail bone) can improve local blood circulation, which is effective in both prevention and treatment.
In addition, those with constipation can often massage the abdomen to improve constipation.
