Relationship Between Liquid Bowel Movements With Irritable Bowel Syndrome?
Thank you for the question.
IBD (inflammatory bowel disease) refers to chronic inflammation in the digestive tract, such as ulcerative colitis or Crohn's disease. Clinically, IBD sufferers will indeed experience diarrhea, namely liquid bowel movements with more frequent frequency due to impaired absorption of nutrients and fluids in the digestive tract that are affected by inflammation. In addition, IBD can also make sufferers experience abdominal pain and cramps, bloody bowel movements, decreased appetite, weight loss dramatically, fever, and also easily tired. The exact cause of IBD is not yet known. However, many experts believe this condition occurs due to immune system malfunctions that make immune cells mistakenly attack cells in the healthy digestive tract. Age, race, genetics, smoking habits, and a history of long-term NSAID consumption can also worsen IBD symptoms.
Because the cause is unknown, the definitive treatment for IBD is not available until now. However, in order for complaints to improve, your doctor can give you several types of anti-inflammatory drugs, immune system suppressants, antibiotics, various drugs and other supplements, setting a good diet, even operating on certain conditions. If you stop this treatment without consulting your doctor, clearly your complaints (including diarrhea) will reappear.
The good thing is, you check yourself back to the doctor or doctor of internal medicine to be evaluated, whether the liquid chapter that you are experiencing right now is purely related to the IBD you are suffering from, or is there another reason. For now, you can multiply drink water first, eat a little but often, eat foods that are easily digested, and consume multivitamins and probiotics if necessary. You also need to limit consumption of milk and processed products, high-fat foods, vegetables and fruits that contain too much fiber (such as cabbage, broccoli, cauliflower, beans, corn), as well as other foods and drinks that can irritate the digestive tract, such as spicy foods , alcoholic drinks, and caffeinated. Do not forget, do not get used to eating snacks carelessly, do not smoke, stay away from excessive stress, exercise every day, increase relaxation and breathing exercises, and do not carelessly take medication without consulting a doctor first.
Hope this helps ...
