Causes of Hemorrhoids
While obesity and sitting in a place for extended periods of time are accepted reasons for hemorrhoids, the most common causes of this disorder are irregular bowel habits – constipation or diarrhea. Insignificant body exercise and a low-fiber diet could also be causative agents of hemorrhoids. Increased intra-abdominal pressure occurring due to pregnancy, absence of valves within the hemorrhoidal veins and gastric gland failure could also lead to hemorrhoids. Further, hemorrhoids could also be caused as the person ages.
