Hello everyone, Ah Yue is on duty today.

I was still full of energy on weekends eating, drinking, and having fun. The day before yesterday, I started vomiting and diarrhea. I thought it was “Monday Syndrome”, but I didn’t expect it to get worse… I didn’t go to the toilet all morning. , is on the way to the toilet.

I thought of seeing someone in my circle of friends who was admitted to the emergency room with gastroenteritis a few days ago, and I still feel sorry for the other person, and I am glad that I have not been in the emergency room yet. Could it be my turn so soon? already? I have to say, my aunt has never been in such pain before, gastroenteritis taught me a lesson!

Why does everyone’s stomach become vulnerable when summer comes? Today we invited Dr. You Wendao from the Department of Gastroenterology to have a good chat with us~

What are the causes of gastrointestinal problems?

Indeed, recently in our gastroenterology clinic, there have been many patients with gastroenteritis.

There are many young girls among them. Some of them usually have bad stomach and intestines. They feel full after eating, have diarrhea, have stomach pains, acid reflux, heartburn, belching, belching, etc. It’s uncomfortable here and there, and it gets worse in summer.

There are others who usually have a good stomach and intestines, and they are delicious, but in summer, they suddenly experience abdominal pain, diarrhea, and even fever.

Dietary hygiene

The temperature in summer is high, and if you don’t pay attention to food hygiene, you are prone to gastrointestinal infections acute gastroenteritis. For example, I recently encountered The diarrhea occurs after eating watermelon, the reason may be that the watermelon is not eaten at once after being cut, and it is not well sealed and refrigerated. After a few hours before eating, the bacteria have multiplied for several generations. La! A large number of pathogenic bacteria enter your digestive tract together, and your own resistance is not very good, and it is very likely to cause acute gastroenteritis, abdominal pain, diarrhea and fever.

Similar etiology, we also encountered many friends who bought Liangpi to eat at roadside stalls in summer and suffered acute gastroenteritis after eating; and The dishes made at noon are saved for dinner, but they are not refrigerated or fully heated. The above conditions are the reasons for abdominal pain, diarrhea and fever in summer.

Irritable Bowel Syndrome

There is a very high incidence of the disease called: Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS), about 1 in 10-20 people >. It will manifest as pulling when it is spicy, pulling when drinking, pulling when taking exams, pulling when nervous, pulling when it is dry…

Good guy, these patients have even more headaches in summer. They want to blow air conditioners when they are too hot. As soon as they enter the air-conditioned room, the intestines are running fast, and the feces are about to come out. They want to drink The same is true for ice drinks. The top is ready and the bottom is ready immediately…

The most embarrassing thing is that I still want to swim in summer. I just swam a few meters after getting out of the water. My intestines are swimming faster than you. It depends on whether you can swim back to the shore immediately, whether it is faster than the speed of rushing to the toilet, or the speed of your intestinal peristalsis! (The above scene is really too picturesque…)

Although this disease does not seem to be a serious disease, it will not cause serious harm to life. It is still possible to live to 99 years old, but it does affect life a little bit. .

Emotional Impact

The gastrointestinal tract is a barometer of emotions. Many friends are easily irritable, have no appetite, and sleep well in summer. As the saying goes, a calm mind is naturally cool, but unfortunately it may be due to the improvement of living standards over the years and the improvement of material conditions.Abundant, now the general situation is the other way around, everyone’s ability to bear discomfort is declining sharply, when they are uncomfortable, they become irritable, and when they are irritable, they become even more uncomfortable, so it is a vicious circle…

In fact, most digestive system symptoms such as abdominal pain and bloating, early satiety belching, foreign body sensation in the throat, nausea, poor appetite, etc. are closely related to psychological and emotional state


Because our human body has a mysterious and intangible pathway called the “brain-gut axis”, when we eat a lot, it not only satisfies the taste buds and gastrointestinal tract, but also It will make the brain produce pleasant emotions; correspondingly, the high emotions will also make us appetite, and eat well.

Some people’s gastrointestinal function is not good, and their mood will also be affected, and even lead to anxiety and depression; others may be negatively affected by poor mood, and all aspects of the body’s physiological functions are negatively affected , leading to impaired gastrointestinal function.

Other reasons

Of course, the so-called “bad stomach and intestines” may also be due to other reasons. For example, some people have upper abdominal pain, thinking it is a stomach problem, but it turns out to be gallstones, pancreatitis , and even myocardial infarction in extreme cases can manifest as severe and persistent upper abdominal pain.

Some girls have diarrhea once a month, thinking it is gastroenteritis, but it may actually be caused by premenstrual or menstrual hormone changes in gastrointestinal motility diarrhea.

Some friends are depressed, afraid of cold in summer and constipated, while others are extremely afraid of heat, easily excited, have frequent bowel movements and are not formed, which may also be a problem with thyroid function. The former may be hypothyroidism and the latter may be hyperthyroidism.

What should I do if I have a “bad stomach”?

First of all, we still have to make it clear that Gastrointestinal distress is just a symptom, there may be various reasons behind it, we try our best to go through the medical history A review of the symptoms and, if necessary, laboratory tests from the hospital are added to find out the cause and treat both the symptoms and the symptoms.

If you have acute gastroenteritis because you eat a bad stomach, the key is to know how to assess the severity of the disease. Some friends vomit and cannot eat by themselves, and the diarrhea is special. If the symptoms of dehydration occur in the body, such as: less urination, dry mouth, sunken eye sockets, poor skin elasticity, etc., then you must see a doctor in time to replenish water through infusion.

For example, the cholera outbreak in Wuhan University some time ago, this bacteria can cause a large amount of diarrhea in a short period of time, resulting in dehydration and life-threatening.

If you have irritable bowel syndrome, the gastrointestinal tract is too sensitive, and even a slight stimulation of your gastrointestinal tract will overreact. In fact, the most basic treatment is Try to avoid incentives, and try to avoid things that are easy to cause pain and easy to pull.

In addition, if it is really serious, you can go to the hospital’s gastroenterology department to take some drugs that regulate gastrointestinal function and intestinal flora to relieve symptoms.

If your gastrointestinal symptoms are caused by psychological and emotional discomfort, then you need to raise your awareness, learn to live peacefully with minor discomfort, and avoid Pay too much attention to your own discomfort, and avoid searching online because of a little discomfort. The result is that the cancer starts when you search, and the symptoms become more serious when you are anxious, and you will fall into a vicious circle from then on.

How to eliminate the “cancer” scare?

Of course, when it comes to cancer, it’s something we all want to avoid and a source of anxiety for most people. Then the cancers corresponding to the digestive tract are mainly esophageal cancer, gastric cancer and colorectal cancer. In our country, among the top five cancers with cancer deaths, his three brothers are among them.

First of all, we have to make it clear: The vast majority of cancer occurs in the middle-aged and elderly people. The older you are, the higher the risk of developing the disease. a sudden rise. Therefore, for young people, if they have gastrointestinal symptoms, they do not need to worry too much about cancer at first. The probability of this is actually very low.

Secondly, we need to know that the reason why we often hear that cancer is advanced as soon as it is discovered is because there are actually no symptoms that are causally related to it in the early stage. If we want to To consciously prevent cancer, don’t pay attention to symptoms at all. Basically, it is difficult to “change our destiny” by relying on symptoms.

Symptoms not only can’t help us find cancer early, it also makes us anxious, as a daily and gastrointestinal tumor, especially digestive endoscopy that specializes in early cancer screening and early cancer treatment Doctor, the concept of healthy cancer prevention that I really want to share with you is: For friends over 40 years old, no matter if you are uncomfortable or not, it is recommended to do it at least once first.

Then for friends between the ages of 20 and 40, if you feel uncomfortable, please don’t think about it. The probability of you having a big problem is actually very small. If you are worried, you can go. Do it once, and you won’t need hypochondriasis to fear cancer if you do nothing.

Then if you have no symptoms and you are still young, do you need a gastroenteroscopy examination? For friends with high health expectations, of course, it is also possible, and it is a physical examination.

The purpose is to rule out a small number of young people’s tumors caused by genetic problems. The absolute number of these young people with gastric cancer and colorectal cancer is actually not large, but if you put it another way, in these young people who died young In fact, a lot of people are because of gastric cancer.

How to nourish the stomach?

Next comes the question that everyone is very concerned about: how to nourish the stomach.

Do you drink porridge to nourish your stomach?

Does eating soft foods nourish the stomach?

Can eating health supplements nourish the stomach?

Does the gut need extra protection from us?

Everyone should remember an iron law. For the organs of our general population, under the premise of a balanced diet, regular work and rest, proper exercise, and maintaining a good mood, no Hurt is the greatest tenderness.

For example, how to protect the liver? Don’t do things that damage the liver is the greatest protection for it. For our digestive tract and esophagus, what are you afraid of? I am afraid that you will eat hot food, that you will smoke and drink.

What is the stomach afraid of? Afraid of long-term infection of Helicobacter pylori, afraid that you often eat pickled and smoked food, afraid that you always eat too salty.

What are you afraid of? Afraid that you will be too fat, that you will be sedentary for a long time without exercising, that you will take antibiotics indiscriminately to get infected, cough, have diarrhea, and “anti-inflammation” regardless of the situation.

Summer is the most vibrant season of the year. I hope everyone has a good body, a good mood every day, learns the correct knowledge of health science, and learns to live peacefully with minor illnesses. Learn to prevent serious illnesses, not be anxious, and enjoy the beautiful life of this era.
