When it comes to farting, people scoff at it and hide from it. However, farting is a normal phenomenon. Healthy people fart 5 to 10 times a day, especially if they eat too fast, drink carbonated beverages, eat foods that are easy to produce gas, and walk while eating, etc., so that gas enters the stomach with food. Finally excreted in a fart. From the doctor’s point of view, farting is a manifestation of intestinal patency, but more attention should be paid to farting, especially patients with liver disease should be alert to liver cirrhosis.
What does cirrhosis have to do with farting?
When liver cirrhosis develops to a certain level, liver ascites is prone to occur, that is, there is too much fluid in the abdomen, which causes abdominal distension, which leads to increased farting, so that the number of bowel movements in a day is more than 10 times. The frequency of farting is proportional to the severity of liver cirrhosis. The more severe the liver cirrhosis, the more frequent farting. People who suffer from chronic hepatitis, fatty liver or alcoholic liver, and who have been taking drugs for a long time, if there is a sudden increase in farting, they should go to the hospital for liver-related examinations as soon as possible to rule out the possibility of liver cirrhosis.
What behaviors can induce cirrhosis?
1, overweight or obese
A person who is overweight or obese has too much fat in the body, which is stored in the liver After completing the metabolism, beyond the range that the liver can bear, the remaining fat will inevitably accumulate around the liver cells, so that the liver cells cannot absorb nutrients from the blood, and the metabolic wastes in it cannot be excreted, thereby causing fatty liver. Simple fatty liver is not scary, just do a good job of life conditioning, but it will gradually develop into steatohepatitis and eventually transition to the stage of liver cirrhosis or liver cancer. Therefore, you should control your weight, start with increasing exercise and diet, and use medicine to lose weight if necessary.
2, stay up late
After 23 o’clock, the liver repairs itself non-stop, but still does not sleep at this time, it will reduce the blood flow to the liver, destroy the repair and regeneration process of liver cells, reduce the resistance of the liver, and increase the risk of disease. Therefore, you should have a regular daily life, be in a deep sleep state from 23:00 to 3:00, and sleep about 7 hours a night.
3. Drug abuse
Have you ever heard of drug-induced hepatitis, or drugs The liver damage caused by most drugs is metabolized and detoxified in the liver, including western medicine, traditional Chinese medicine and health care products. If you want to protect the liver, you must actively reduce the burden on the liver. You don’t need to take medicine if it is not necessary. When necessary, you need to strictly follow the doctor’s order to take medicine, and you cannot combine medicine by yourself.
4. Food is too frugal< /p>
The weather in summer is not only hot but also high humidity. Improper storage of food or too long storage time can easily breed aflatoxin, which is highly toxic and has certain carcinogenicity. Excessive intake can increase the risk of liver disease. /p>
Risks such as cirrhosis or liver cancer, diet should not be too frugal. If the color of the food surface changes, or there is an odor, it should be thrown away immediately.
5. Unreasonable dietary structure
Excessive intake of calories and fat, Eating very full can increase the load on the liver, so you should adjust your diet to focus on plant-based foods and eat less carbohydrates and high-sugar foods.
