In patients with high blood pressure, defecation force may cause cerebral hemorrhage. Among antihypertensive drugs, diuretics can promote the excretion of water in the body, which can cause insufficient water in the body, hard stools, and cause constipation. Therefore, hypertensive patients taking diuretics should pay attention to supplementing water and regularly monitor electrolytes.
Because hypertension is one of the important causes of cerebral hemorrhage, patients with hypertension must keep their stools unobstructed to prevent accidental cerebral hemorrhage when exerting force. In addition, when constipation patients forcefully defecate, the burden on the heart will increase, which can easily induce angina, arrhythmia, and myocardial infarction.
Patients with anal fissure and hemorrhoids cause a vicious circle. Patients with anal fissures experience severe pain like tearing when defecation. Therefore, some patients will subconsciously hold their stools, causing the stool to stay in the intestines for too long, leading to constipation, and the symptoms of anal fissure will be aggravated when the stool is forced, forming a vicious circle. If it is not treated in time, it will cause the crack to remain unhealed, cause anal fissure triad, and even form anal fistula after infection.
Therefore, when treating hemorrhoids, the first thing to do is to keep the stool unobstructed, shorten the time of defecation, and reduce the predisposing factors of hemorrhoids.
Patients with liver cirrhosis, or induce serious complications Liver cirrhosis is a common disease of the digestive system, and many patients with digestive system diseases have symptoms of constipation. Patients with liver cirrhosis should not underestimate constipation, which may induce serious complications. For cirrhosis patients with constipation, the diet should be light, easy to digest, and balanced nutrition.
Abdominal hernia patients will aggravate hernia symptoms. Abdominal hernias are mainly manifested as masses protruding to the body surface, and the size of the masses will vary with body position. When the contents of the hernia are intestines, the patient will have symptoms of intestinal obstruction such as abdominal pain, bloating, nausea, and vomiting.
If you have long-term constipation, exertion during defecation will cause the patient’s intra-abdominal pressure to increase, which will cause the symptoms of hernia to worsen. Therefore, patients with hernias should consult a specialist in time if they have symptoms of constipation.
