Most people think that almoranas is an embarrassing subject to be discussed in public. In reality, almoranas is nothing to be ashamed of because it is a common medical condition that needs to be treated right away.
Almoranas happens when there is increased pressure in the veins that weakens the muscles and connective tissues in the hemorrhoidal network of veins, which then causes swelling in the lower part of the rectum and anus1.
Many people are embarrassed to talk about almoranas and those who do sometimes fall into some pre-conceived notions. What are your misconceptions about almoranas? Read on because some of them may be in our list:
It is caused by eating spicy food
Many people think that spicy food is the cause of the swelling, but this is not the case. Spicy food does not affect the veins in the rectal area, but one has to avoid it if he is already suffering from hemorrhoidal problems2. Apart from spicy food, people who have almoranas also have to avoid food that lack fiber. These food can cause constipation, which leads to the development of almoranas. These items can cause strain in the bowel movement3.
Sitting on cold surfaces triggers it
The temperature of a surface where one sits does not cause hemorrhoidal problems. However, sitting for a long period in the same position can cause strain in the rectum4. In fact, a cold compress may help reduce the swelling.
Only the elderly can get them
While a person's connective tissue in the anus and rectum weakens over the years, this does not mean that only old people are prone to hemorrhoidal problems. Anyone at any age can develop almoranas. Any pressure on the anus can cause the veins to swell. Anyone can experience this especially people with constipation or diarrhea5.
There is no treatment available
Perhaps, this is one of the biggest misconceptions around. There are treatments available to manage the symptoms caused by almoranas, including bleeding and pain. No one has to suffer from almoranas without a fight.
Diosmin+Hesperidin (Daflon® 1000) MPFF is an Anti-Almoranas Brand6. It is a venotonic, which means that it targets the swollen veins and increases venous tone. It is also a vasculoprotector, which means that it increases resistance in small blood vessels7. Daflon® 1000 is used to treat functional symptoms related to acute hemorrhoidal attacks such as rectal pain, bleeding, and itching8.
Daflon® 1000 can go to the root of the problem because of its unique Anti-Almoranas Micronized Flavonoid Formulation. It is made up of micronized granules that can penetrate the swollen vein itself, bringing back the normal blood flow in the veins to restore its function9.
Daflon® 1000 can be purchased directly over the counter of any leading drugstores nationwide. For best results, patients are encouraged to consult with their doctors to discuss the treatment plan and expected outcome.
