Hemorrhoids: From your part, make sure your stool is never hard or you are constipated. Drink adequate amount of water, diet should have more fiber, more vegetables, fruits; avoid fried/fatty food. See your doctor to find out how bad is it. He/she may refer you to surgeon if needed.

Veins: Hemorrhoids are normal veins in the anal canal. They can become inflamed or enlarged with constipation or prolonged and repeated straining to have a bowel movement. Treated at home by avoiding constipation, drink plenty of liquids, eat more fiber (fruits, vegetables, metamucil), avoid junk foods. See a surgeon if symptoms persist.

Hemorrhoids.: It is important not to get hemorrhoids in the first place. Stay well hydrated (at least 8 - 8 oz glasses of water per day). Eat 5 vegetable & 4 fruit servings per day – get that fiber in. Avoid junk carbohydrates. Stay physically active. Preparation h is one of a # of otc meds to reduce itching & pain & laxatives can also help. Sitz bathes can be helpful. Sit in a bathtub with enough warm water >.

to submerge anal area. Soak for about 15 minutes – several times a day. There are a number of over-the-counter medications you can use for your anus to help with itching, burning & pain. Preparation H is one of the more well known products. Oral Tylenol helps with discomfort. Severe pain - see physician!

Diet, medication: Simple things such as a high fiber diet, and stool softeners can reduce symptoms. Steroid suppositories or anal creams are also helpful. There are non surgical office based procedures such as rubber band ligation or infrared coagulation which will reduce the hemorrhoids. Surgery is usually reserved for only the most severe cases.

Osteoporosis: I assume you're referring to osteoporosis or weak bones. 1st need to confirm/make diagnosis w/DXA (dual energy absorptiometry) scan. 2nd need to figure out why/cause. Hyperthyroidism? Corticosteroids? Tobacco use? See https://www.shef.ac.uk/ for major risk factors. Finally, discuss options: bisphosphonate, RANKL inhibitor, recombinant PTH, SERM, estrogen, etc. Check out http://nof.org/articles/22
