Mr. lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. Not that everyone who gets constipated or has hard stools gets hemorrhoids (pilles). But most often over straining, badly constipated stools are possible reasons. Precautions to be taken are_ Increase the intake of green leafy vegetables, fruits, salads. Avoid highly spicy foods, take plenty of water and juices. Develop good bowel habits, visit the toilet as you get the urge. Do not allow stools to become hard. Some times with all the precautions still hemorrhoids do develop. Thanks.

Gut Feelings: Eight Steps to Better Digestion

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
Poor digestion can put a cramp in anyone’s style. But sometimes it’s tough to know what might be causing the problem. Here’s a quick way to make sense of bad gut feelings, along with some steps you can take to improve your digestive health.

Your gut is your guardian

Your gut is a bit like a watchdog. It’s a tough and loyal guardian, and very smart.

Its job is to welcome healthy nutrients and life-giving water, while protecting you from various toxins and irritants that may try to sneak in alongside them.
Most of the time, your gut has great judgement. But occasionally, it’s a bit hasty. Every now and then, it overreacts. And sometimes, it’s just not strong enough to fend off the “bad guys.”

What kind of bad guys are we talking about? Well...there are dozens. You can learn more about them in this in-depth article. But in the meantime:

too many over-the-counter or prescription drugs
too much sugar or refined carbohydrates
too much alcohol
“bad” bacteria
parasites, yeast
stress (acute & chronic)
environmental contaminants.
When your gut hurts

Any of these can irritants can lead to bloating, gas, constipation, or diarrhea.

If you’re suffering from symptoms like these, it means your “enemies” are too strong. Your guardian has been overpowered and simply can’t protect you any more.

Symptoms of poor gut health can also show up outside the gut.

Have you ever been bothered by unexplained headaches, joint pain, fibromyalgia, skin problems, sleep disturbances, or fatigue? Any of these might be due to poor gut health.
The good news is that with the right nutrition, you can strengthen your gut’s defences and provide a stronger barrier. Not only will your gut be happier, but you’ll also enjoy better overall health.

Eight easy steps to a happier gut

It may be tempting simply to mask your symptoms with medications like over-the-counter antacids or prescription drugs.

But soothing the symptoms won’t make your underlying problem go away, and may actually make things worse.

Instead, try these simple nutritional strategies. Followed with a bit of care, they can help you figure out the source and treat it at the same time.

Eat when hungry, stop when satisfied. Believe it or not, this simple rule can save you countless hours of misery (and might help you lose unwanted pounds).
Eat slowly. Chewing is important for enzyme release and breaking food into particles that the gut can manage.
Eliminate any foods or drinks that bother you. Aren’t sure what those are? Try an elimination diet to find out. Common culprits include sugar alcohols, refined grains, MSG, and dairy products.
Add real food. Fruits, vegetables, beans, tea, and coffee are good sources of gut-strengthening flavonoids. Beans, peas, whole grains, nuts, seed, fruits are high in fibre, which helps to ensure regular elimination of toxins.
Balance your bacteria. Good bacteria strengthen the intestinal barrier. Choose 1-2 probiotic/prebiotic rich foods or drinks and eat them often. Here are some ideas to get you started.
Recover well. Sleep, stress management (like meditation or yoga) and exercise are vital to help us control inflammation, which in turn can improve gut health. But remember that too much exercise is taxing on the body. And give your gut a break: avoid big meals before exercise.
Reduce your chemical burden. Choose organic when you can, try not to heat foods in plastic containers, avoid food colorings and fish high in mercury.
Supplement wisely. A few options to consider include glutamine, digestive enzyme supplements, Vitamin D, Omega-3s, iron, turmeric. But be sure to address the underlying problem first. You can ask me doubts, privately

Hello, Thanks for your query. Try an over-the-counter medicine containing simethicone, which helps to break down gas bubbles. You can try a process of elimination by substituting a gassy food for a non-gassy one, and see which one is giving you the most trouble. A few basic substitutions: • Rice milk for cow’s milk • Bananas, blueberries and melon for apples, peaches and plums • Gluten-free and spelt cereals and bread for wheat and rye products • Bamboo shoots, bok choy, carrot, celery, corn, eggplant, green beans, lettuce, chives, parsnip, pumpkin, and tomato for artichokes, asparagus, Brussels sprouts, broccoli, cabbage, okra, onions, and peas. I do hope that you have found something helpful and I will be glad to answer any further query. Take care

Ulcerative colitis causes, Reason for disease and Treatment? Can effect this disease in Reproductive health?

PDDM, MHA, MBBS
General Physician, Nashik
The cause of this condition is unknown. Researchers no longer believe that stress is the cause. Today, research focuses on the immune system and heredity for possible causes. Ulcerative colitis is a chronic condition. Treatment usually involves drug therapy or surgery. The goal of treatment is to reduce the inflammation that causes your symptoms. Some ulcerative colitis medications can affect fertility. Men who take azulfidine (sulfasalazine) to treat ulcerative colitis might find that their sperm count or sperm function is negatively affected. These symptoms generally cease after the medication is stopped. However, it's possible for pregnancy to occur even if a man is on sulfasalazine, but it's still an important caveat. Your sex drive might be decreased. Medications such as prednisone can negatively affect sex drive. Additionally, ulcerative colitis can make one feel fatigued, weak, and simply not in the mood for sex.

Well you have two problems1. Gas problem,- for this you must avoid fried and spicy food. Take 6 small meals instead of 3 major meals. Take plenty of water. One of your meals should be fruits. Slowly with draw the said medicine. If the problem recurs, take consultation with a gastroenterologist to rule out h pylori infection. For your second problem,- you must maintain good hygiene at the anal area. Wash it with plenty of water twice daily. Avoid constipation or loose stools. Take isafgole 3tsf with a glass of water daily as one of your meals (out of 6). Do a stool examination. Thanks.

Do not forget to take more intake of water, approximatelyminimum 3-4 litres/day. Avoid outside food, junk/fast/more spicy food& canned, baked, packaged food or drinks. **at the same time you needtodo some exercises, regularly, to get fitness, that may be in gym, or by jogging, plating anyway for maintaining fitness.

It is irritation of diaphragm and you may have to check up and decide on medication .Various agents have been reported to cure hiccups. Chlorpromazine appears to be the drug of choice. Haloperidol and metoclopramide have been used successfully. Several anticonvulsant agents (eg, phenytoin, valproic acid, and carbamazepine) have effectively treated intractable hiccups in typical anticonvulsant doses

an abnormal or surgically made passage between a hollow or tubular organ and the body surface, or between two hollow or tubular organs. Surgery is usually necessary to treat an anal fistula as very few heal by themselves. The type of surgery you have will depend on the position of your fistula and whether it is classed as simple or complex. Your surgeon will be able to explain the procedure to you in more detail

For acidity you should take simple home food in time. Avoid spicy or fried items, tobacco and alcohol. No stress. Omez 20 mg taken on empty stomach once a day every morning for 2-4 weeks helps. If no relief you should see a general physician.
