Hefty with Hemorrhoids

Why does being overweight increase your chances of getting hemorrhoids?

 

People who are obese are more likely to get hemorrhoids because excessive weight puts pressure on the veins of the rectum and anus, which can lead to swelling and inflammation.

 

In addition, people who are obese are more likely to be sedentary and too often have a diet that too low in fiber and high in fat, which often causes constipation. Constipation causes you to strain excessively to pass a bowel movement, putting pressure on the veins in the anus and resulting in swelling.

 

Additionally, obese people very often don’t only have poor food diets, but their liquid intake includes little to no water, favoring diet sodas and other liquids. Not drinking enough water can lead to constipation by not providing an adequate amount of fluid in the intestines, leading to hard stools.
