Causes Of Defecation In The Blood In Patients With Hepatitis A?
Hello, my name is Dwie Yanti, I’m 21 years old. I was hospitalized for hepatitis A in January. And since I was discharged from the hospital, until now. every so often every chapter bleeding. why is that?
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Hepatitis A can indeed cause bowel obstruction. But often, bowel disorders caused by hepatitis A are more in the form of diarrhea, constipation, or pale stools, not bloody bowel movements.
If what you experience is a bloody chapter, and these complaints are often repeated, more likely the trigger is:
Bleeding in the lower gastrointestinal tract, such as due to hemorrhoids, anal fissure, anal cancer, intestinal inflammation, colon cancer, dysentery
Bleeding in the upper gastrointestinal tract, such as peptic ulcers, esophagitis, gastric cancer
Drug side effects, such as NSAIDs, aspirin, anticoagulants
Bleeding disorders, such as due to hemophilia, ITP (idopathic thrombocytopenic purpura), vitamin K deficiency, and so on
Of course, it is not easy to distinguish between the various possibilities above without checking your condition directly. Ideally, you first check yourself with a doctor or a specialist in the nearest internal medicine so that further physical examination is done, or assisted by supporting tests, such as ultrasound, endoscopy, stool tests, blood tests, and so on. As an initial suggestion, you should do it first:
Prevent constipation, i.e. by drinking lots, eating lots of fruits and vegetables, and not getting used to holding bowel movements
Do not get used to eating snacks carelessly, especially unhygienic and undercooked food
Not taking drugs carelessly, except on doctor's prescription
Make it a habit to wash your meals every time you eat, after you eat, and after you use the toilet
Hope this helps ...
