Piles are hemorrhoids that are swollen due to irregular bowel movement or any infection inside the rectum. Every human has them and they don’t normally cause discomfort. They are not life-threatening and go on their own in days or a week. In some cases, if aggravated, they can persist for a longer duration and cause a lot of discomforts, pain, and bleeding.
Here we will talk about how consumption of milk can affect a patient? It is given that milk and dairy products contain very less fiber, consuming them can result in constipation or worsen the condition. However, it is also known that milk products, in general, do not aggravate piles. Skim milk or low-fat milk may increase constipation which is also not a piece of good news.
There are conflicting reports on the consumption of buttermilk, we suggest that don’t consume curd or buttermilk at night. However, the known fact is before sleep, you can take lukewarm milk with a few drops of honey for good night sleep and smooth bowel. Furthermore, Banana & Whole Milk puree is one of the most commonly used home-remedy as banana is high in fiber and whole milk contains certain fats that are easy to digest.
Moreover, you must avoid the intake of certain milk products such as Tea and Coffee. These products can dehydrate your body which can lead to constipation. If you have piles, it is advisable to cut down your caffeine consumption drastically.
The gist of the matter is that you should monitor your consumption of milk & dairy products. You can take whole milk but add high-fiber content food in the diet. But if the condition of piles persists and causing a lot of pain and bleeding, you should consult with a dietitian for a diet specifically furnished according to your symptoms or you can opt of laser-based treatment for piles as a permanent cure.
