Abstract

High-fiber diet in the treatment of symptomatic hemorrhoids in 51 patients was evaluated in a double-blind placebo-controlled trial. Bleeding and pain at defecation were significantly reduced during six weeks' treatment with Vi-Siblin® (P<0.025), and this effect was still recognizable three months later.
