How can I prevent haemorrhoids?

Below are some tips that may help prevent haemorrhoids or reduce the risk of them developing:

Eat a high-fiber diet: Eating a diet rich in fiber can help prevent constipation and reduce the risk of haemorrhoids. Good sources of fiber include fruits, vegetables, whole grains, and legumes.
Drink plenty of fluids: Drinking plenty of water and other fluids can help soften stools and make them easier to pass, reducing the need for straining during bowel movements.
Exercise regularly: Regular exercise can help improve bowel function and reduce the risk of constipation, which can contribute to the development of haemorrhoids.
Avoid prolonged sitting: Sitting for long periods of time can put pressure on the veins in the rectum and anus, increasing the risk of haemorrhoids. Try to take frequent breaks and walk around periodically if you have a job that involves sitting for long periods.
Practice good toilet habits: Avoid straining during bowel movements and try not to sit on the toilet for long periods. If necessary, use a stool to elevate your feet and improve the position of the rectum during bowel movements.
