Eating Biryani in Piles: Is it SAFE or Not?

Short Answer: Biryani is bad for piles. Because it has white rice, oil, and spices, and they can cause constipation, inflammation, and bleeding.

Piles is a condition that affects your anus and lower rectum.

In piles, your blood vessels in the anal and rectal area become swollen and inflamed. This can lead to various health problems, such as pain, bleeding, itching, infection, and prolapse.

One of the key factors in managing piles is diet.

What you consume can affect your bowel movements, which can impact your piles symptoms and overall health.

To effectively manage piles, you should consume fiber-rich foods like fruits, vegetables, and whole grains and avoid refined carbohydrate-rich foods like white rice, white bread, and pastries.

Now, biryani is a mixed rice dish that originated from South Asia. It is made with spices, meat, vegetables, and sometimes nuts and dried fruits. They usually cook it with white rice and serve it with raita and salad.

Biryani is bad for piles because it contains white rice, oil, and spices.

One cup of biryani can give you 300 calories, 45 grams of carbohydrates (15% of your daily needs), 10 grams of fat (15% of your daily needs), and 15 grams of protein (30% of your daily needs).

White rice can cause constipation and increase the pressure on your piles. Oil can add extra calories and fat to your diet, which can worsen your piles. Spices can irritate your piles and cause inflammation and bleeding.

Furthermore, biryani is a high-glycemic food and high-glycemic foods are bad for piles.

Because they can raise your blood sugar levels quickly and cause inflammation in your body.

That’s why I suggest you limit your biryani intake to avoid aggravating your piles. Stick to one cup or less per week to minimize the risk of constipation, inflammation, and bleeding.

Also, you shouldn’t eat biryani if you have severe or bleeding piles to prevent infection and complications. Because it can irritate to your wounds.

You can buy fresh ingredients for biryani in your local market or order it from online.

Always choose high-quality rice, meat, vegetables, and spices.

Because they can affect the taste and nutrition of your biryani. You can store them in a cool and dry place for up to a week.

Finally, remember, maintaining a healthy lifestyle, including a balanced diet, regular exercise, and stress management, is key to managing piles effectively.

I always recommend my piles patients to follow a piles-friendly diet to improve their overall well-being, and enjoy a longer and healthier life.
