Diabetics’ blood sugar regulation itself is problematic and fragile, unlike normal people who can independently complete sugar metabolism through their own endocrine and nerve regulation systems. People with diabetes rely more on regular “manual regulation” to control, including correct diet, matching reasonable exercise, necessary drugs and other measures.
This kind of “manual adjustment” must be done regularly, specifically in the following aspects:
1. The daily diet should be “three-fixed”:
Regular, complete meals within a fixed time period, such as 12 noon every day :00~12:30 or 12:30~13:00 to complete the Chinese meal;
Quantitative, the food intake of each meal at the same time is relatively fixed, and the ratio of coarse and fine grains is distributed It is also relatively fixed. It cannot be less today and more tomorrow. The composition and proportion of the diet structure and proportion should be the same as much as possible at the same time;
Set meals and fix the number of meals. , eat five meals tomorrow.
2. Regular exercise makes blood sugar more stable
Regular physical activity is important for prevention and control The role of diabetes, especially type 2 diabetes, is incredibly important. Exercise can help reduce body fat and improve tissue sensitivity to insulin. Diabetics must also keep in mind and balance the 3 life styles – diet, exercise and therapy to control blood sugar levels.
3. Develop a good sleep schedule h1>
Sleep is not good, and blood sugar is also bad. When sugar lovers fall asleep, the secretion of blood sugar hormones in the body decreases or even stops. And long-term insomnia, unable to enter a deep sleep state, the sympathetic nerves in the body will be excited, resulting in a large amount of glycemic hormone secretion.
Due to the impaired function of the islets of the pancreas, diabetics cannot secrete enough insulin to suppress the glycemic hormone. The result is that the blood sugar rises and the fasting exceeds the standard!
High blood sugar and poor sleep! When the blood sugar level is too high, it will stimulate and damage the nervous system and aggravate sleep disorders.
4. You should not just take medicine without monitoring blood sugar
Monitoring blood sugar can understand the disease control on the one hand The situation and clinical treatment effect can also be used as an important basis for choosing drugs and adjusting drug doses. With the prolongation of the course of the disease, the effect of many sulfonylurea hypoglycemic drugs (such as Xiaoke Pills, glyburide, Damekang, etc.) gradually decreases, which is called “secondary failure of hypoglycemic drugs” in medicine.
Some patients do not pay attention to regular review. They feel that they have been treated continuously and have a sense of psychological security. However, if secondary drug failure occurs, it is actually no cure . Some patients have been taking medicine, but complications still occur, and this is the reason. Some patients have repeated hypoglycemia during the course of taking the medicine. Because the blood sugar is not monitored and the correct reason is not clear, the treatment of the disease is delayed.
5. Stable emotional state
In real life, some negative emotions cannot be avoided of. When we encounter troublesome things, it is easy to get angry. In clinical practice, 30% to 50% of diabetic patients have psychological disorders. Anger hurts the liver. If the anger persists, the liver qi will be reversed, causing liver catharsis dysfunction, liver glycogen storage capacity will decrease, and blood sugar will rise. Elevated blood sugar can make people restless and emotional, which is why many diabetic patients are difficult to control their emotions, irritable and irritable. Anger makes blood sugar rise, and blood sugar rises make it difficult to control emotions. In this way, a vicious cycle is formed, causing blood sugar to rise sharply.
