However, it is suggested that chronic constipation, chronic diarrhoea, pregnancy, improper diet, overweight or lifting heavy weights can all trigger the onset of symptomatic piles. There are a number of treatments available for piles. In some cases, home remedies and lifestyle modifications are more than sufficient.
