Fart can’t stop, or when nervous, your stomach hurts, you need to go to the toilet, you may go to the toilet many times a day, and you feel uncomfortable with swelling? Then you need to pay attention to the disease of irritable bowel syndrome.
Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) is a functional intestinal disease characterized by abdominal pain or discomfort associated with changes in defecation or defecation habits. Abdominal distension, abdominal swelling and defecation disorders are common features.
Irritable bowel syndrome is a recurrent functional bowel disease based on symptoms as diagnostic criteria. Because IBS is such a disease without organic lesions, the diagnostic criteria are not exactly the same in different countries, and there is still no definite cause, we can only make some suggestions to help patients better survive the onset of irritable bowel syndrome.
One Caution: Junk Food
Although the relationship between irritable bowel syndrome and food is unclear, most patients with irritable bowel syndrome have relieved their symptoms after stopping eating all junk food in their daily diet.
The so-called [junk food] generally has the following characteristics:
High fat content: enhance intestinal contraction and aggravate abdominal pain during digestion;
Low fiber content: Most junk foods have low fiber content due to lack of plant substance. However, fiber is very important to keep stool soft and shaped, and to increase the consumption of foods with high fiber content, whether for patients with constipation-type irritable bowel syndrome or diarrhea-type irritable bowel syndrome.
Artificial sweeteners: Some artificial sweeteners, especially those named after [so-and-so sugar alcohol], will aggravate flatulence symptoms after eating.
Food additives: Our bodies were not initially designed to degrade certain special food additives. Food additives can prolong the shelf life of food and make food look more attractive, but they do not have much benefit for human beings.
Second Ring: Low Fiber Food
For some reason, the word [fiber] can trigger fear in patients with irritable bowel syndrome. These patients believe that eating foods high in cellulose will aggravate symptoms such as abdominal distension, diarrhea or constipation. In fact, these discomforts often occur when eating too much or too fast.
As mentioned above, fiber can soften feces, relieve constipation, and at the same time help stool shape and relieve diarrhea. Make friends with fiber, which is beneficial to the health of the overall digestive system.
In practice, It should be done step by step, Step by step add fiber to your diet, and don’t rush. You can increase the fiber content in your diet by eating grains, fruits and vegetables, and you can also add volumetric laxatives in an appropriate amount. It is also called laxatives. Don’t hesitate because of the word [laxatives]. Volumetric laxatives can be used as fiber supplements.
The only thing that needs to be reminded is to avoid intake of all kinds of bran, because bran has too much irritating effect on intestinal tract.
Three Commandments: Unnecessary Diet
There are only two requirements for dieting: Some special foods that cause allergy, Some short-chain carbohydrates (FODMAPs) that have been proved to induce irritable bowel syndrome. FODMAPs are a class of short-chain carbohydrates (oligosaccharides), including disaccharides, monosaccharides and related alcohols, as well as some sweeteners mentioned in the previous paragraph. They stimulate flatulence during digestion and induce the onset of irritable bowel syndrome.
Some patients with irritable bowel syndrome have been identified as allergic or intolerant to some foods.
The only way to avoid food allergy or intolerance is to keep a food diary and not touch your own excluded food (i.e. Food that can cause the onset of irritable bowel syndrome).
Four Commandments: Doctors Without Compassion
Some doctors have bad attitudes because irritable bowel syndrome is a functional disease. These doctors often have no patience and compassion to treat patients.
However, some studies have shown that the doctor-patient relationship can affect the effect of treatment. Whenever possible, be a wise patient and carefully select doctors.
Doctors with the following manifestations can no longer see TA:
- Only blame your symptoms on psychological factors and stress; Unilaterally think that you are exaggerating the pain; I think you are a drug addict.
In addition, most patients with irritable bowel syndrome are told by doctors: [There is no good treatment for irritable bowel syndrome, accept the status quo.]
However, you can read the records of patients with irritable bowel syndrome or the positive energy story of successful cure of irritable bowel syndrome, so you will find that most patients can relieve discomfort symptoms through various ways.
Five Commandments: Pay Excessive Attention to Feces
Usually, irritable bowel syndrome can only be diagnosed after other organic diseases are excluded, so patients often have doubts about the diagnosis.
Because of this uncertainty in diagnosis, patients with irritable bowel syndrome always feel that they should be alert to some abnormal symptoms in order to find out if they are suffering from more serious diseases in time. A very common example is that these patients are abnormally obsessed with checking the color and characteristics of stool after each defecation.
You know, in addition to bloody stool, stool can also take on a variety of sizes and colors without any serious diseases.
Excessive persistence in checking and worrying about changes in stool characteristics will cause unnecessary anxiety, and we all know that anxiety usually aggravates the symptoms of irritable bowel syndrome.
Just do yourself a favor. Changes in stool characteristics are normal and there is no need to pay too much attention.
Six Precepts: Don’t Let Others Know Your Illness
Patients with irritable bowel syndrome often try their best to hide because the affected part is difficult to say. In our view, this is unfair and unnecessary, because intestinal dysfunction and diseases such as asthma or diabetes are no different from what.
Covering up the stress caused by irritable bowel syndrome will eventually aggravate these discomfort symptoms, not to mention that active social support will bring better therapeutic effects.
Of course, when disclosing any personal information, evaluate the reliability of the other person before opening your mouth. If you feel support and understanding, you can open your heart and pour out your pain. This will enable people who really care about you to help you according to your special needs.
In fact, many people suffer from irritable bowel syndrome. Once you open your heart, you will be pleasantly surprised to find that you are not alone in the battle.
In addition, don’t worry that your digestive tract symptoms will affect others’ evaluation of you.
If you accidentally exhaust your intestinal tract, well, that is, fart, just say sorry and then do what you should do. If you need to go to the toilet and there are others in the toilet, don’t add uneasiness and perplexity.
People will judge you as a how person according to your personality. The noise and smell from your position will not affect others’ views on you.
Seven Commandments: Everything Perfect
Many patients with irritable bowel syndrome get mad because they miss work or family activities. The internal reason is that these patients exert pressure on themselves to be perfect in everything, specifically by taking on additional responsibilities and/or believing that they must not say “no” to other people’s demands.
Suffering from irritable bowel syndrome does not represent personal [failure], it is only a simple and simple health problem. Therefore, there is no need to [make up] what.
Remember to pay attention to your anxiety level.
If you feel stressed, you are too anxious. Remember, this anxiety will only aggravate discomfort symptoms. Whenever possible, set limits, set tasks and prioritize yourself.
The existence of irritable bowel syndrome cannot be changed. All you can do is do your best.
Pig: Neglecting Life
Due to the unpredictability of irritable bowel syndrome, it becomes difficult to plan activities in advance. You start to worry when you leave home.
Please don’t let these uneasiness occupy your life.
There are some activities that make people happy and can ensure that everyone can find a convenient toilet place at any time. There is no need to refuse such activities. Look for opportunities to participate in activities that can improve mood and positive energy.
When participating in the activity, you need to evaluate your feelings.
If you really feel that you cannot leave the bathroom, cancel your participation in this activity. However, if you are suffering from abdominal pain and discomfort, an activity that can divert attention may reduce the pain and discomfort for you.
Irritable bowel syndrome may be an unexpected guest in your life, but it is not the whole of your life.
