To prevent hemorrhoids and reduce symptoms of hemorrhoids, follow this guide (part 2):
- Weight Reduction Obese patients in Minneapolis are 2-4 times more likely to develop hemorrhoids than the average patients, so weight loss may help to reduce the recurrence.
- Treat the Underlying Diseases: People with other medical problems, such as liver cirrhosis with portal hypertension, cardiovascular diseases, and abdominal tumors are more likely to develop hemorrhoids. The treatment of these underlying medical diseases is important to prevent hemorrhoids.
- Shower after Bowel Movement: You may program your bowel movement in the way that you always try to have bowel movements right before your regular shower. For example, if you are a morning person, you go to toilet first before you take a shower, so the anus is always clean without residual feces. Residual feces are irritable to the skin around anus. If you starting having recurrent symptoms, then a daily Sitz bath helps a lot to relieve the symptoms.
- Early Treatment: Finally, once the hemorrhoids come back, you should immediately request an experienced practitioner in Minnesota to treat it. The earlier treated, the better the result. One Stop Medical Center serves the entire Twin Cities and offers the comprehensive hemorrhoids treatment in both Edina and Shoreview offices.
