Diet for Anal Fissures

Table of Contents

Following a specific diet is crucial for managing and healing anal fissures for several key reasons. One of the main causes of fissure-in-ano is hard stools. A diet high in fiber helps to soften stools, promoting regular bowel movements, making them easier to pass, and thus reducing the strain on the anal sphincter. Maintaining a healthy diet also helps prevent complications such as haemorrhoids, which can occur due to straining during bowel movements and further aggravate anal fissures. Certain foods can irritate the digestive system and worsen symptoms of an anal fissure. Dietary suggestions for those with anal fissures are given below:

Avoid: Non-vegetarian foods, Maida, bakery items, biscuits, chips, soft drinks, spicy fried food, pineapple, corn, caffeine, alcohol, and junk foods.

Reduce: Spices, pappad, pickles, palak.
