Causes And Overcoming BAB Accompanied By Blood?
Hello, I want to ask, twice this morning I defecated accompanied by blood. But I don’t feel pain at all, why is that? Thanks.
Hello, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com
Many diseases are characterized by symptoms of bloody bowel movements. If the blood that comes out is fresh blood and does not mix with feces, then the blood will come from the anal canal. The most common cause is hemorrhoids or hemorrhoids. Hemorrhoid is the dilation of the veins or veins around the anal canal. Triggered by the habit of straining during bowel movements due to constipation. Consuming less water and fiber (vegetables and fruit) will cause constipation. This condition can be treated with antihemoroid drugs.
Meanwhile, fresh blood mixed with feces is a sign that blood comes from the large intestine and rectum. Can occur in ulcerative colitis and chorn disease. Both diseases will be accompanied by slimy stool. The cause of the two diseases is not yet known with certainty. However, it is strongly suspected to be caused by an autoimmune disease, which is a disease characterized by immune cells attacking normal body cells causing inflammation.
However, if the blood in the stool is dark and mixed with the entire stool, resulting in black stool like hair, then the blood in this condition is sourced from upper gastrointestinal bleeding (esophagus, stomach and small intestine). The most common cause is peptic ulcers caused by taking painkillers (in the long run) and alcohol.
Bleeding that occurs in the digestive tract, can not be ignored. You should consult with an internal medicine doctor first. The doctor will conduct a medical question and answer and continue the physical examination. Physical examination will be carried out starting from the oral cavity to the stomach and the area around the anus. If necessary, the doctor will perform a digital rectal examination, which is an examination carried out by inserting the doctor's index finger into the anal canal to check the condition of the rectum and the anal canal. This examination is indeed a bit uncomfortable, but can be overcome by the patient taking a deep breath. So you don't need to worry. Blood and stool attached to the doctor's gloves, will be carried out laboratory stool examinations. Next, the doctor will conduct an endoscopic examination or colonoscopy if needed. That is an examination carried out using a small pipe that is smooth and flexible, which is equipped with a camera, to be inserted into the digestive tract, can be through the oral cavity or anus, depending on the doctor's suspicion of the source of bleeding that occurs. If during the examination the doctor finds active bleeding, then the doctor will be able to provide direct treatment at that time without any other operative action. So that the endoscopy or colonoscopy examination can be done as an examination and treatment as well.
For further treatment will be based on the disease.
Meanwhile, you should consume lots of water and foods that are high in fiber. You should also consume food sources that contain iron, such as liver and beef and spinach. Iron is needed to prevent anemia in cases of bleeding. You can also get iron from food supplements.
Thus hopefully useful.
