Are Piles and constipation related?
Constipation and piles. We realise that this is not the most exciting or intriguing subject to discuss. However, just because it is not exciting or thrilling enough doesn’t mean it doesn't need to be talked about. Millions of people from around the globe suffer from constipation, which often goes on to create other problems like haemorrhoids, commonly known as piles. So before go ahead and understand the relationship between piles and constipation and how can we deal with them, let’s take a moment to understand what is constipation and piles and what causes them
What is constipation
Constipation is the situation where your body is unable to expel the waste material from your body as it needs to. Now you might feel that a couple of weeks back you had difficulty in….well…expelling wastes from your body while you were sitting on the toilet in the washroom. Now does that mean that you are constipated? The answer is probably no. Having difficulty passing stool once in a while is quite normal. It happens at times due to sudden changes in diet or lifestyle and usually, there’s nothing to worry about. However, if you find yourself facing this situation a bit too often, that is when you should sit up and take notice.
Now, technically speaking if you have bowel movements less than 3 times a week, it can be termed constipation. However, what is funny is that it is quite personal and varies from person to person. For some going to the washroom 2-3 times a day might be normal while for others they can be going to the washroom to do the “deed” and it is completely normal for them.
What we need to look into is that as long as we don't stray from our regular patterns, there isn’t much to worry about. However, the significant factor that decides whether you suffer from constipation or not is whether you struggle to pass your stool or not. If every time you go to the washroom and it is a struggle for you to do the “deed” and you find the experience rather painful, then in all probability you are suffering from constipation. Other signs that you might be constipated are:
- Your stool is dry and hard.
- Even after having done the “deed”, you get the feeling that you have not fully emptied your bowels.
As we mentioned, constipation is not a unique health problem. Millions across the globe suffer from constipation. And what most people usually get are bouts of constipation. In other words, it means that just because you have constipation currently doesn’t mean you will have it for the rest of your life. With the proper treatment, it can be dealt with easily. However, for some people, it can become a continuing nuisance leading to something called “chronic constipation” This includes
- Older people
- Some Women during pregnancy and after childbirth
- People having certain neurological or digestive problems
- People not eating enough fibrous food.
Now, let’s science things up a little. Now, the food that we ingest normally moves through the digestive tract, where nutrients get absorbed. The food that was broken down partially or wasn’t broken down at all moves from the small intestine to the large intestine also known as the colon. Now, the colon absorbs tha water from those food materials rendering it into a solid consistency which we commonly call as stool. Now, if your colon absorbs too much water from the waste making it too hard and dry, thereby making it difficult for you to pass it out, that situation is called, you guessed it right…constipation.
Apart from certain medicines and other bodily conditions, constipation can be a consequence of our unhealthy lifestyles. Not drinking enough water, not eating fibrous food, having too much junk, and not exercising enough, all of these can contribute to the problem of constipation. So if you are someone who is suffering from constipation, you should consult a doctor. Apart from that, you may also want to take a long hard look at your lifestyle and evaluate if something can be changed to make it healthier and better.
