Recently, people often say to me something like this: I haven’t seen you for a few weeks, are you fat? Could it be that the salary increase has improved my life? In fact, I don’t need to tell them, I have already discovered that the weight I am proud of that has not changed for several years has suddenly increased. And this is not the only strange thing. Going to work makes me feel very tired. I am so tired that I just want to fall asleep when I go home. And now I can’t even see clearly. Looking at the increasingly unfamiliar face in the mirror, I suddenly become conscious. There may be something wrong with my physical condition…
Later, I went to the hospital for a checkup and was diagnosed with type 2 diabetes. Diabetes…diabetes…I thought it was an old man’s disease, but I’m only 23! The doctor at the hospital asked me to do a routine blood test and blood sugar test. As expected, blood sugar levels were particularly high, reaching 11.7 mmol/L 2 hours after the meal. Afterwards, a glycosylated protein test was added, and the final diagnosis was type 2 diabetes.
Yes, I have diabetes at the age of 23. But I don’t usually eat a lot of sweets? Desserts and cakes are only occasionally eaten with milk tea and only drink three-point sugar, and only buy sugar-free drinks. Now I often eat what I think is quite healthy, and keeping in good health has become the creed of many young people. But you said you don’t eat sweets very much, do you like heavy salt and spicy?
In fact heavy salt and spicy It is the killer hidden in the daily diet. I don’t just like heavy salt and spicy food, I don’t like spicy food, okay? I eat all kinds of spicy and spicy food almost every day. This habit started after I moved to a new company. Ordering a ++ spicy Mala Tang after get off work every day has become my magic weapon to fight stress. All kinds of spicy strips are locked in the shopping cart late at night every day.
In fact, you thought you were eating spicy food, but you actually ate more without knowing it sugar. The spicy taste in Chinese food needs sugar to enhance its freshness! Home cooking may be enough, but restaurants and snack bars are full of sugar. 30 catties of water with 3 catties of rock sugar is delicious! This will make us consume too much sugar without knowing it. Chronic hyperglycemia results, and the insulin receptors on the body’s cells eventually become insensitive due to long-term exposure to too much insulin. This is insulin resistance.
Moreover, a high-salt diet will also increase the burden on the kidneys and heart, causing blood pressure fluctuations, etc., which will aggravate diabetes. The doctor told me that my condition belongs to the early stage of diabetes. I don’t need to take medicine yet. The condition can be alleviated by controlling diet and exercise. The first is to choose foods with a low glycemic index (GI) in the diet, which cause a smaller postprandial blood sugar response.
Let me share with you what low-glycemic foods are.
Grains and products: barley, rye, corn; black rice, barley, cornmeal porridge.
Beans and products: mung beans , red beans, broad beans, peas, lentils, green beans.
Dairy and products: milk, yogurt, milk powder, cheese.
Potatoes and products: potato vermicelli, sweet potato vermicelli, Lotus root starch.
Vegetables: celery, onion, cabbage, rape, lettuce.
Fruits: apples, peaches, apricots, plums, pears, strawberries, blueberries, pomegranates, oranges, grapefruit, Oranges.
Nuts: peanuts, walnuts, pistachios, cashews, melon seeds.
Meat and aquatic products: red meat, poultry, sea vegetables, laver, fish, shrimp and crab.
Secondly, appropriate aerobic exercise can improve insulin resistance. 1 hour after meals every day Exercising for about 30 minutes, and persisting for more than 5 days a week can achieve good results. Fast walking, jogging, swimming, cycling and ball games are all good choices.
After several months of recuperation, Today, my body has improved by half. I have carried out some projects to reduce the risk of hypoglycemia, and I need early-stage diabetes patients who have not undergone drug treatment. I am also in line with the final improvement of the disease and I am quite satisfied with the effect~
