Diet precautions for piles

Diet Precautions for Piles

Piles, or Haemorrhoids, is the condition where blood vessels around the rectum swell. This often results in pain, itching and bleeding, and also possibly resulting in prolapse (protrusion of the inner vessels) in more serious cases.

Early Piles often may heal on its own with adequate home care and self-help measures. Over-the- counter medicines can be used for the swelling and warm tub baths can help with the pain. However apart from these, one of the most important things to keep in mind is to avoid straining during bowel movements as it can aggravate the condition immeasurably. This is why patients having haemorrhoids need to adhere carefully to the dietary precautions in order to avoid constipation. Without it, piles might worsen to the extent of needing surgery.

Lifestyle changes such as a healthy diet and regular exercise can thus make an enormous difference to people suffering from piles. Key diet precautions that patients need to follow are:

Include High Fibre food

High fibre food helps in digestion and ensures regular bowel movements. The fibre from food adds bulk to your stools, make it softer thus enabling you to pass stools regularly without any strain. The ideal amount of fibre recommended per day for adults is 20 to 30 gms

To get this, your diet must include sufficient amounts of whole grain, lentils, fruits, vegetables and nuts. These provide you with not just the necessary dietary fibre but also essential nutrients. Doctors, in fact, recommend a minimum of 4.5 cups of fruits and vegetables every day.

Some of the recommended items are: Fruits such as Apples, pears, papaya, and vegetables like green leafy vegetables, cabbage, carrots, beetroots etc.

However, you must make sure to introduce food with the high fibre slowly into your diet so as to avoid cramps, stomach upsets and gas.

Avoid Processed Food

Processed food such as chips, burgers, freezer meals, pizzas although convenient do not contain any fibre and are also poor in nutrients. A diet which is predominantly made of processed food usually leads to constipation, which aggravates haemorrhoids. Doctors, therefore, advise patients suffering from piles to reduce junk food.

Avoid Refined Grains

Refined grains such as white bread, pasta are very low in dietary fibre and nutrients. Include whole grain items such as oatmeal, whole wheat pasta, brown rice to boost the amount of fibre in your meals.

Avoid Processed Meat

Patients suffering from piles must ideally avoid a diet that is meat-heavy since animal meat does not contain fibre. Processed animal meat is worse since apart having no fibre, it usually contains very high levels of salt, fat and sugar.

Increase Intake of water

Increased water consumption is helpful in softening the stools and to add bulk as the fibre in your digestive system absorbs the water and enlarges in size. This helps in the easy passage of stools. It is recommended to drink at least 8-10 glasses of water per day. Other recommended liquids that can be consumed include fruit juices and green tea, but avoid too much of caffeine.

Dr. Nitish Jhawar Attends Course on the Innovative DGHAL Technique For Piles Treatment at Austria

Dr. Nitish Jhawar Attends Course on the Innovative DGHAL Technique For Piles Treatment at Austria

Dr Nitish Jhawar, Head of Colorectal department, Fortis Hiranandani Hospital located in Vashi Navi Mumbai recently participated in a Surgical Workshop Training course on the use of Doppler Ultrasound Proctoscope for carrying out the Doppler-Guided Hemorrhoid Artery Ligation (DGHAL) procedure.

The workshop, which was held at A.M.I head office at the Feldkirch & Bludenz General Hospital in Austria, covered key principles, techniques, and protocols regarding the use of the Proctoscope. It also covered the basics of the disease along with its indications as well as a comparison with other available techniques.

The DGHAL is a relatively new advanced operational technique for evaluating and treating haemorrhoids (piles).  This minimally invasive procedure uses ultrasound Doppler to accurately identify the site of the piles and enables the tying of the affected vessels as well as repositioning of the haemorrhoidal lumps. A highly effective method, the treatment involves lesser pain and facilitates faster recovery for patients.

The Proctoscope plays a vital role as it guides the process through the Doppler ultrasound probe which is mounted on this specially designed equipment. Understandably it is important to understand the full range of its features, operations and capabilities.

The workshop attended by Dr Jhawar was focused on enabling participants to gain complete knowledge of the equipment, which would help them to better perform examinations using the Proctoscope and implement effective techniques to carry out the treatment.

Dr. Jhawar thanked Dr. Mathias Sheyer, who is the Chief Surgeon of Bludenz General Hospital and has experience in treating over 2000 cases in last 15 years, and Dr. Gruber Andreas for sharing their expertise.

Commenting on the event, Dr Nitish Jhawar said,” It has been an extremely educative experience to attend this workshop. The high rate of success and superior benefits to patients through innovative DGHAL technique makes it an important treatment option, and I will use the knowledge and skill gained from attending this workshop to offer this treatment to my patients.”

Dr. Jhawar is a highly experienced expert in the field of Laparoscopic & Colorectal surgeries. He has previously undergone advanced training in treating piles & Fistula.

He has additionally been trained in VAAFT – Video Assisted Anal Fistula Technique in a session held in Berlin, Germany which included a meeting with Dr. Monreio the inventor of the technique. This endoscopic treatment method offers diagnoses and removal of anal fistulas through fistuloscopy, which avoids surgical excision of the sphincter, making it less painful.

What patient says about Dr. Nitish Jhawar

  • Person Image

    I was diagnosed with gall stones a year ago in Delhi, I showed it to a doctor at M.... hospital, he .... asked me to get a surgery done and get my gall removed on any date of my choice, I was sacred and too young to get it done I got a vibe from doctor that for him it’s just a small things, however according to for a patient it’s important first be convinced on the urgency to get it done and feel safe . A year later I shifted to Mumbai and started having a frequent pain in shoulder blades and gall area. It went sharp this time. We went to Dr Nitish , as oppose to Delhi doc, Dr Nitish was very polite, first asked us to get the scan done and understand the current scenario, the scan showed one big 17 mm stone which was earlier also there but this time also there were multiple various sized stones as well along with the big one. Dr Nitish examined the scan, explained me and my husband about the condition and need of surgery or else the stone Would have slipped in the panacea or bile calling for a bigger operation. He explained diagramatically . He was patient in explaining, gave us time to think and be convinced. We were ready and then he performed it . It was flawless, quick and went well. He is a very experienced and fine surgeon , he is caring and doesn’t create panic at all rather he takes it slowly and makes patient comfortable. It was lapro, it’s been 2 months I m writing this . I faced no issues till now. Fortis staff was also very caring and good. I would mention fortis Vashi in specific. Good follow up diet makes it normal. I would strongly recommend Dr Nitish. He knows his job perfectly. He is not money minded at all. He would recommend surgery only if it’s required.
