What kind of food? Should eat/should avoid for hemorrhoid patients?

      Hemorrhoids, also known as piles, are a condition characterized by the swelling of blood vessels in the rectal area. This condition often leads to issues with the digestive system, and many people may experience discomfort, bleeding, and severe itching, especially during bowel movements. However, the good news is that this condition can be relieved by choosing the right foods. Today, we have a list of "Foods to Eat and Foods to Avoid" for hemorrhoid patients.


Foods to Eat for Hemorrhoid Patients 

  • Whole grains and unprocessed flours, such as whole wheat, brown rice, barley, or oats.
  • Legumes of all kinds, including green peas, lentils, black beans, yellow beans, or green beans.
  • Cruciferous vegetables like broccoli, cauliflower, cabbage, kale, and bok choy.
  • Root vegetables, such as potatoes, sweet potatoes, beets, carrots, and turnips.


Foods to Avoid for Hemorrhoid Patients 

  • Dairy products, including milk, cheese, butter, and others.
  • Processed foods made from refined flour, such as white bread, pasta, and white rice.
  • Meat and processed meat products like sausages, ham, bacon, bologna, and other processed meats.
  • Fried foods, which are high in fats and can be difficult to digest.
  • Spicy foods, as they may cause irritation for people with hemorrhoids.
  • Caffeinated beverages and alcoholic drinks, which can lead to harder stools and increased difficulty during bowel movements.

      The most important aspect of treating hemorrhoids is maintaining high-quality bowel movements. Dietary fiber is a key factor in improving bowel movements. Therefore, it is best to consume foods high in dietary fiber and ensure an adequate daily intake of water to soften stools, make bowel movements easier, and alleviate hemorrhoid symptoms.
