Commonly known as piles, hemorrhoids affect the nerves of the anal canal. The nerves swell due to the bleeding, which causes discomfort while passing stool. The most obvious symptom of hemorrhoids is pain with bleeding at the time of discharge or stool passing.
What causes hemorrhoids?
The primary reason behind the occurrence of hemorrhoids is the sedentary lifestyle (of a patient). Most of it also depends on your dietary intake. However, many of us consume a lot of carbohydrates, fat, and protein in our regular diet and we forget or simply are reluctant to take physical exercises. This, in turn, affects the increase in body weight and the activity of our digestive system. As a result, patients develop diseases like hemorrhoids.
Diet plays an important role in preventing hemorrhoids. If we do not add a sufficient amount of fiber to our diet, there is a potential risk of developing hemorrhoids. Fibers help with convenient drainage of feces and make up the bulk of feces. Besides, insufficient water intake can also cause this disease.
