"Huangdi Neijing" says: "wise people's health is also suitable for cold and heat in accordance with the four seasons." it also puts forward the principle of "nourishing yang in spring and summer, nourishing Yin in autumn and winter", and emphasizes the important role of the four seasons' health on the human body. The fluctuation of blood glucose in patients with diabetes is closely related to the season, so self health and recuperation is particularly important. With the advent of autumn, the health care of diabetic patients should also be adjusted timely. We should pay attention to the following eight aspects:
1. Nourishing Yin
In autumn, the weather is dry. Dryness in traditional Chinese medicine is also an evil that damages the human body. It is most likely to damage the lung. Most of the patients with diabetes have Yin deficiency and dryness heat constitution, and they are more sensitive to dryness pathogen, so we should pay attention to prevent dryness. Therefore, the autumn diet should be mainly sweet and light moisture. Pear, orange, water chestnut, loquat and other autumn fruits all have good effects of nourishing yin and moistening lung. Radish, cucumber, wax gourd, cauliflower, cabbage and other seasonal vegetables are cold and cool in nature. They have the functions of generating body fluid, moistening dryness, clearing heat and defecating. The vitamin C, B, inorganic salt and cellulose contained in them can improve the adverse effects of dryness on human body. Drink a small amount of boiling water, milk, juice drinks, etc., which can nourish yin and moisten dryness. Autumn should eat less cold, spicy, fried fire baked food, such as onions, ginger, garlic, roast mutton, fried chicken legs, so as to avoid injury fluid consumption, aggravating the symptoms of autumn dryness. All the above diets should be reasonably selected within the total amount of daily calorie intake.
2. Early to bed and early to rise
It is said in the book of simple questions: in autumn and March, the weather is urgent and the atmosphere is clear. Early to bed, early to rise, and chicken are all fun. 'it's a way of living to keep fit in autumn. In autumn, Yang Qi gradually converges and Yin Qi gradually increases. People should go to bed early and get up early according to the changes of yin and Yang in the four seasons. In early autumn, the weather is changeable, the immunity of diabetic patients is low, and they are most likely to catch a cold. Especially the elderly patients should increase or decrease their clothes in time to guard against catching a cold.
3. Happy mood
The scene of withering in late autumn is easy to make people feel unstable, and the blood sugar of patients with diabetes is also easy to fluctuate. "Plain questions" says: "in autumn and March, the mind will be tranquil to ease the punishment of autumn; the spirit will be restrained to make the autumn Qi level; the mind will be free to make the lung qi clear. That is to say, in terms of emotions, we should keep calm, avoid being irritable, and pay attention to keeping calm. Patients can take part in some suitable activities, such as drinking tea, playing chess, practicing calligraphy, reciting poems, appreciating flowers, painting and so on, to maintain a pleasant mood and stabilize blood sugar.
4. Proper exercise
Autumn is a good time to exercise. Proper exercise can make the upper and lower Qi run through, enhance the function of viscera, and improve the body's resistance to disease. Appropriate exercise can reduce weight, improve insulin sensitivity, improve lipid metabolism in diabetic patients, which is conducive to the control of blood glucose stability. Therefore, we can choose sports according to personal preferences, such as jogging, qigong, Taijiquan, walking, etc. Elderly patients had better be accompanied to prevent hypoglycemia.
In a word, if diabetics can abide by the principle of "Four Seasons Health Preservation" in autumn and conform to "autumn seasons" in diet, daily life, emotion and exercise, they can effectively control blood sugar, reduce the occurrence and development of complications, and lay a good foundation for a smooth winter.
