Are hemorrhoids inherited?
Many people have this question. Whether hemorrhoids are inherited is still inconclusive. Junichi Iwataru reported: About 44% of patients with hemorrhoids have a family history. However, some scholars believe that many people in a family suffer from hemorrhoids, which may be related to the same or similar life habits, lifestyles, and conditions of family members. The occurrence of hemorrhoids is greatly related to improper lifestyles and poor eating habits. Relationship, that the genetic evidence for hemorrhoids is insufficient. Therefore, we can still think that hemorrhoids are not hereditary.
Is the occurrence of hemorrhoids related to occupation?
As mentioned earlier, human body position has a certain relationship with the formation of hemorrhoids. People who stay in a fixed posture for a long time are prone to hemorrhoids. Those who stand for a long time are teachers and salespersons, and those who are sedentary are secretaries, typists, drivers, etc. Long-squatting people such as electric welders. Some scholars in China have conducted a survey, and the incidence of hemorrhoids among sedentary patients is 72.9%, and the incidence of hemorrhoids among long-standing patients is 73.5%. However, the rate of hemorrhoids in people who keep walking is only 43%, the difference is significant. Therefore, those who need to maintain a proper posture during work should move or change their posture appropriately according to the situation, which can reduce the chance of hemorrhoids.
Why are the elderly and pregnant women prone to prolapsed hemorrhoids?
Elderly people are susceptible to prolapsed hemorrhoids (that is, prolapse of internal hemorrhoids outside the anus) due to many reasons. First of all, the older you are, the less the amount of activity will be, and the function of the internal organs will be reduced, and the gastrointestinal peristalsis is relatively slow, which is easy to cause dry stool; secondly, with the increase of age, the supporting and fixing tissue in the anal cushion-the submucosal muscles gradually age and become hard , Loss of elasticity makes the anal cushion easy to move downwards; in addition, some elderly people have difficulty in defecation, even loose stools, several times a day, or often cough, these conditions increase abdominal pressure, the result is that the anal cushion is pushed out of the anus to become Prolapsed hemorrhoids. Pregnant women are prone to hemorrhoids and prolapse. The reason is relatively simple: the gradually enlarged uterus compresses the intestines, causing defecation disorders. Pregnant women have to exert force to expel stools. As a result, the submucosal muscles in the anal cushion are damaged and broken. The anal cushion is pushed out of the anus and becomes hemorrhoids. Prolapse. In addition, the uterus compresses the intestines, which affects the return of venous blood, and it is easy to cause hemorrhoids to bleed when defecation is forced. Because pregnancy is afraid of affecting fetal development, medication is not convenient. Therefore, we suggest that women suffering from hemorrhoids should treat hemorrhoids properly before getting married or pregnant.
