It is already long summer and the weather will soon get hot.
Sugar lovers should pay attention to what in summer?
Dr. Clove has compiled 6 suggestions for everyone to help them smooth their blood sugar through the summer.
Move in hot weather
The weather is getting hotter and hotter. Is this the state of some sugar lovers?
It’s so hot that I don’t want to go anywhere? Just want to stay at home, watch TV and blow the air conditioner?
Diabetes doctors should remind everyone that this is not good. When the weather is hot, they should also move.
Exercise is an indispensable link in the treatment of diabetes. Sugar lovers must not be lazy and stop exercising because the weather is too hot. Because doctors have already taken the amount of exercise into account when making sugar control plans for sugar lovers. If the amount of exercise is reduced, blood sugar may rise.
We suggest sugar lovers to exercise when the temperature is not so high. For example, they can exercise 150 minutes a week after breakfast or dinner. Remember to bring a few pieces of sugar during exercise to prevent hypoglycemia during exercise.
Drink more water when the weather is hot.
Many sugar lovers worry that drinking more water will easily lead to polyuria and always limit the amount of water they drink.
This must not be the case in summer. The temperature is high and the amount of sweat is large. If the amount of drinking water is too small, it will easily lead to an increase in blood viscosity and increase the risk of cardiovascular and cerebrovascular diseases.
Therefore, sugar lovers should drink more water in summer, about 1-2 litres a day.
Of course, the best drink is plain boiled water.
If you think plain boiled water has no taste and is not good to drink, don’t drink sugary drinks, which is too dangerous to blood sugar!
Sugar lovers can try to drink their own lemonade: slice the peeled lemon and soak it in cold boiled water without adding honey. It is better to soak the lemonade lightly. A slice of lemon can make about 1.5 liters of lemonade.
Lemons can also be replaced by lime and sour orange. This kind of lemonade can not only replenish water, There are also potassium, a small amount of vitamin C, flavonoids and other nutrients, and the taste is fresh, suitable for drinking in summer. What needs to be reminded here is that lemonade does not have [hypoglycemic] effect. To control blood sugar, it is still necessary to keep your mouth shut, keep your legs open, take drugs on time and in amount, and maintain good living habits.
Fruits are on the market and can be eaten in moderation.
Every summer, there are a large number of fruits on the market, and many sugar lovers are too greedy to do so, but they only dare to pass the addiction.
In fact, if blood sugar is well controlled, sugar lovers can eat fruits.
Sugar lovers can choose varieties that have less influence on blood sugar, such as apples, peaches, pears, plums, cherries, etc.
As long as you don’t eat too much, fruit will not have too much effect on blood sugar. The amount of fruit eaten in a day should be controlled at 100-200g and eaten in batches. The amount of 100 grams of fruit is about half an apple, half a peach, half a pear, two plums and 10 cherries. The eating time can be arranged between meals and before exercise.
When eating fruit, sugar lovers should pay attention to the fact that the energy we eat fruit needs to be exchanged with the energy of staple food, that is to say, if we eat fruit, the staple food should be reduced accordingly. For example, if you eat half an apple (100g) every day, then you will eat two fewer staple foods every day.
In addition, sugar lovers should be reminded that if fruits are used for staple food and recipes are changed, blood sugar after meals should be monitored.
Wear shoes with bare feet to cool off and pay attention to skin care.
In summer, the weather is hot, leather shoes and sneakers are stuffy and uncomfortable, and people have changed into sandals and slippers.
If sugar lovers wear sandals and slippers, they can not neglect the care of their feet while liberating them:
- Pay attention to the purchase of qualified sandals and slippers, Don’t let sandals and slippers grind your feet. Don’t choose flip-flops for sandals and slippers. Avoid friction between the big toe and the food toe. Try not to wear sandals and slippers to walk in gravel and gravel places. If you have to go, Be careful not to let gravel or gravel scratch your feet. Check your feet carefully every day when you go home. See if there is any wound. Wash your feet with warm water before going to bed, Because many sugar friends’ foot skin is not sensitive to cold and heat, it is best to ask your family or use a thermometer to test the water temperature to avoid scalding. After washing your feet, dry your feet with a soft towel, and pay special attention to the toe seams. If your feet are dry, apply moisturizer. If you find wounds, no matter how big or small, you must treat them thoroughly.
Cold dishes are delicious, be careful of diarrhea.
In the hot summer, the cold dishes with rich varieties and refreshing taste are really very attractive.
However, if you eat carelessly, you will suffer from vomiting and diarrhea, which will aggravate the fluctuation of blood sugar. At the same time, due to food poisoning, you can’t eat anything and reduce the intake of energy. At this time, if you still take drugs according to the normal amount, it is more likely to induce hypoglycemia.
Therefore, sugar lovers should pay special attention to food safety when eating in summer:
- It is best to buy cold dishes at a store you trust or make them yourself. When cooking at home, you should pay attention to the separation of raw and cooked dishes. The food should be cooked thoroughly and thoroughly. The purchased ingredients and endless food should be stored in the refrigerator.
If symptoms such as vomiting and diarrhea occur, you should see a doctor immediately and explain your illness to the doctor so as to facilitate the doctor’s judgment.
The temperature is high, insulin should be put away.
In summer, the weather is hot, and the temperature often rises to more than 30 degrees. Many sugar lovers worry that the high temperature will lead to insulin failure.
Don’t worry, follow these points, insulin is properly preserved.
1. Before opening
According to the requirements of the instructions, unopened insulin is generally required to be stored in a refrigerator at 2 ℃ ~ 8 ℃. As long as the place is not close to the freezer, the shelf life and biological effect of insulin will not be affected.
Step 2 Before Injection
Before injection, it is recommended to take it out of the refrigerator and leave it for about 2 hours, and then inject it after the insulin is close to normal temperature, which can avoid discomfort during injection and stimulation to subcutaneous tissue.
Insulin that has been turned on can be stored at room temperature (about 25 ℃) without light for no more than 4 weeks. Insulin injection is repeatedly placed in cold and hot environment, which is more likely to cause insulin failure, so it is not necessary to put it into refrigerator for refrigeration.
Step 4 When used up
Do not return the insulin pen with insulin refill to the refrigerator compartment after use. Because the injection pen is repeatedly put in and taken out from the refrigerator when the needle is not taken off, the liquid medicine in the insulin refill will inhale air to form bubbles due to thermal expansion and cold contraction, resulting in inaccurate injection dosage. After each insulin injection is completed, only the needle needs to be taken off and stored at room temperature.
Finally, I would like to remind everyone that any insulin cannot be stored at 0 ℃ at any time and frozen insulin cannot be used again.
