Stress & Its Effects on Gastroenterology

Stress & Its Effects on Gastroenterology

A stressful event like speaking in public, going to a job interview can give you butterflies in your stomach that may literally make you want to run to the bathroom. Stress affects every aspect of our lives including digestion. This includes indigestion, heartburn and irritable bowel syndrome. When put in a stressful situation, the body releases hormones known as corticotropin-releasing hormone or CRH. This, in turn, signals the adrenal gland to pump out adrenaline and steroids that help with the body's flight or fight response. Here are a few ways stress affects the gastrointestinal system.Here are a few ways stress affects the gastrointestinal system.

  1. Stress kills appetite: Stress eating is a real problem that results from the contradictory reactions of hormones. The hormones released by stress kill a person's appetite, but at the same time, the steroids released by these hormones make the person crave unhealthy foods like ice-cream, chocolate or potato chips. These foods aren't easy to digest and can cause indigestion, gas buildup and heart burn.
  2. Stress leads to ulcers: Ulcers are caused by bacteria, but stress strengthens the infection and disturbs the balance of hydrochloric acid and protective secretions in the stomach. This increases the risk of ulcer formation in the stomach. Once the ulcers are present in the stomach, stress can worsen the symptoms.
  3. Stress alters the gastrointestinal pathophysiology: Stress can cause changes in gastrointestinal secretions and reduce the amount of oxygen available to the digestive system. It also impairs gastroduodenal motility and amount of enzymes being secreted by the pancreas. Additionally, it interferes with the passage of food through the intestinal tract and alters colonic motility. Stress also affects the absorption of nutrients from the stomach and increases the blood flow to the digestive system by four times the normal amount thus decreasing metabolism rates.
  4. Stress affects irritable bowel syndrome: Stress in itself does not cause irritable bowel syndrome but can worsen the situation. This is because stress can make the colon contract and cause abdominal pain. These contractions are usually uncoordinated and can lead to constipation. It also makes the body more sensitive to pain thus increasing discomfort.
  5. Stress lowers immunity: A large part of the immune system is housed in the gut. Stress reduces the secretion of enzymes in the gut and leaves the digestive system vulnerable to bacterial infections. By weakening the immune system in the gut, stress also increases the risk of suffering from infections in other parts of the body.

Rajesh kindly update about your bowel habits and lifestyle for better assessment however for now you need to avoid spicy and oily food stuffs and also avoid drinking water on empty stomach as this further accelerates gastric issues. Apart form this use a Homeopathic medicine Robinia 30 twice a day for 3 and consult back.

What is Nonalcoholic Fatty Liver Disease (NAFLD)?

MBBS, MD MEDICINE, DM - Gastroenterology
Gastroenterologist, Jaipur
What is Nonalcoholic Fatty Liver Disease (NAFLD)?

In healthy individuals, the liver contains little or no fat. In overweight or obese people, gradual fat accumulation leads to significant liver disease. Interestingly, these individuals may be consuming minimal to no alcohol. So, alcohol, which is the main cause for liver damage, does not have a significant role to play.

The non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) has 4 significant stages as outlined below. It is a chronically progressive disease and may take years to reach the final stages of cirrhosis and fibrosis.

1. Simple fatty liver (steatosis): This is usually identified when diagnostic tests are done for some other suspected conditions. There are usually no symptoms obvious in this stage, other than the buildup of fat in the liver.

2. Non-alcoholic steatohepatitis (NASH): The second stage where the liver is inflamed to a greater extent due to fat accumulation.

3. Fibrosis: The next degree of inflammation where blood vessels may be narrowed leading to scarring in the liver with impaired liver functions.

4. Cirrhosis: This is the most severe stage that occurs due to years of cumulative inflammation. The liver shrinks in size, is scarred, and liver functions are markedly impaired and can also result in liver cancer.

Risk factors for NAFLD: The exact reason why a person develops NAFLD is not established, but some of the risk factors include

1. Obesity, with more weight concentrated around the abdomen

2. Type 2 diabetes

3. High blood pressure

4. High cholesterol levels

5. Age greater than 50

6. Smoking

Symptoms: This will depend on the stage in which it is identified. While there are no symptoms in the early stages, in some people there could be a dull, aching below the ribs, unexplained weight loss, weakness, and extreme tiredness. As it progresses to cirrhosis, there could be jaundice, fluid accumulation in the abdomen and feet, and itching of the skin.

Management: While there is no treatment aimed at curing the disease per se, there are ways to manage the symptoms, as noted below.

1. Weight loss: Reducing excess accumulated fat will help reverse symptoms and prevent further progression of the disease. A BMI of 18 to 26 is considered optimal.

2. Dietary changes: Modify your diet to a carbohydrates and protein rich and reduced fats and sugars. Increasing fiber through fruits and vegetables is highly recommended.

3. Exercise: Whatever your choice of workout, it will do wonders for NAFLD. Keep a target of an hour or two of moderate to intense exercise per day to reduce weight.

4. Smoking: This is another risk factor and can also help prevent other effects of NAFLD such as diabetes and heart disease.

NAFLD is highly controllable with these changes and other damages can be reversed too. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a gastroenterologist.

Rajendra it's good that you have recovered from grave situation and doing well but predicting life expectancy none can provide you as in medical science we do best to treat the condition and impart good health but predicting life span is impossible for anyone being a doctor . management and proper check up from time to time is key to good health.

I'm suffering from ulcerative colitis. I was diagnosed in 2011 Nov. After doing colonoscopy my doctor told that it has affected my whole colon and suggested me methylprednisolone from 36 mg and decreasing it 4 mg every 5 days and stop it. And I used Azathioprine and mesacol for 4 years. After I started using these medicines I started feeling normal but used to have inflammation sometimes and with using ornidazole for 3 days I used to become normal. In Nov 2015 after doing colonoscopy again my doctor confirmed that it has cured very well and asked me to stop using Azathioprine and continue using mesacol. Now almost after 1 and half year again y symptoms for Ulcerative colitis came back and I had to consult doctor and again after doing sigmoidoscopy it is confirmed that ulcer has started again in my colon. Again I was suggested to methylprednisolone and Azathioprine. Currently I'm under medication. Now with my experience I figured out that over masturbation has caused ulcerative colitis to me. Actual in when I was 12 or 13 I got to know something that happened in my family and it disturbed me a lot and got me into masturbation and now it is causing so many health issues for me. As mentioned earlier I used to have increased inflammation sometimes under medication too, that used to happen when ever I had done masturbation. So, I have decided I won't do it again and by end of 2015 everything was fine it got cured well. Now recently in Feb 2017 I had masturbated twice and my ulcerative colitis came back. Until then I was fine without any problem. Now my question is only masturbating twice has got me again into worse ulcerative colitis, if I have sex then will it worsen my condition? I'm 24 and my parents are started searching matches for me and I'm very confused about what to do. If having sex increases ulcerative colitis then I don't want to get into it as this may lead to colon cancer and surgery all those things. I don't want to risk my health and life. Also my ovaries functioning has decreased. I think the reason for that is also excessive masturbation. Please suggest me something on this.

Gastroenterologist, Hisar
There is no connection between masturbation and ulcerative colitis. Ulcerative colitis is a life long disease which has relapsing remitting course. Stop worrying about masturbation. It has no connection with ulcerative colitis.

Dear lybrate-user, If your problems were due to Vitamin B12 and D deficiency, everything will be sorted out with 12 weeks of treatment. Wait without restarting ayurvedic medicines patiently for some more time. Whatever you are facing may be withdrawal symptoms or may be a part of the original disorder. Doctor would have given antidepressant because he would have diagnosed gastric problem is due to depression. Most of the ayurvedic medicines are alcohol based. What you are facing is NOT alcohol withdrawal.
