I often see such messages:
I am only in my early 30s. I found out diabetes last year. What should I do?
In fact, having diabetes when we are young does not mean that we are hopeless. Our life has just begun. If we can cooperate well with the treatment, we can completely live in peace with diabetes.
Today, Dr. Clove helped young diabetics to break down their doubts in life.
Worries about Complications
The real culprit of complications is uncontrollable blood sugar, so the goal of sugar treatment is to control blood sugar.
To control blood sugar, we need three axes: shut up, take your legs and use good medicine.
Shut up: Blood sugar and food are twin brothers. The more you eat, the higher the blood sugar flowing in your blood. If you satisfy your taste, there will be a sweet burden in your blood vessels.
Therefore, sugar lovers should pay attention to the choice of food and do not overdo it.
Keep your legs open: Blood sugar and exercise are mutually exclusive between tell it to the judge and tell it to the judge. You are weak and I am strong, while I am strong and you are weak. Therefore, sugar lovers need to keep their legs open and exercise more.
Different diseases need to choose different sports, and the requirements of exercise time are also different. Generally speaking, sugar friends can choose light to moderate intensity aerobic exercise, such as walking, jogging, cycling, swimming, etc. Guarantee 5 ~ 7 times a week, each 30 minutes of exercise time.
Use good drugs: Drugs for diabetes include oral hypoglycemic drugs and insulin. Whether or not to use drugs and the dosage of drugs need to be evaluated by doctors. What sugar lovers should do is to follow the doctor’s advice, take drugs on time and according to the dosage, and do not change the dosage or stop taking drugs at will.
So, in order to prevent and delay the occurrence of complications, is it enough to control blood sugar?
This is not enough, you also need a physical examination.
The items of physical examination include:
- Blood sugar: self-monitoring every day, and every 3 ~ 4 months to the hospital to check blood sugar; Detection of glycosylated hemoglobin (HbA1c): 2 ~ 4 times a year; Diabetes treatment education: once a year; Ophthalmic examination: once every 1 ~ 2 years; Foot examination: self-examination every day, 1 ~ 2 times a year to the hospital for examination; Primary screening of diabetic nephropathy (urine microalbumin): once a year; Blood pressure: every 3 ~ 6 months; Blood lipid: at least once a year; Dental examination: every 6 months.
Young diabetics are mostly type 1 diabetics and often lose weight. However, some young patients with type 2 diabetes, or under the condition of taking oral hypoglycemic drugs or insulin, will gain weight, which not only affects their health, but also affects their color value, which has also become the concern of young sugar lovers.
We can also try to control our weight through diet and exercise. Some oral hypoglycemic drugs, such as metformin, can also help us control our weight. If the satisfactory effect cannot be achieved, we can also choose surgical treatment after doctor’s evaluation.
Worries about career and studies
Diabetes is a chronic disease. When you get diabetes when you are young, your career and studies are often affected in one way or another. However, various situations encountered by sugar lovers in their career and studies may also cause blood sugar fluctuations.
So, what about reducing the contradiction between diabetes and career and study in how?
In the same sentence, control blood sugar. To control blood sugar, the above-mentioned health check-up cannot be less.
In addition, we should cherish our body, not stay up late, not work overtime, not be tired, relax our spirit properly after work and study, cultivate our interests and cultivate our sentiment, all of which are helpful to control blood sugar.
Worry about childbirth
There was a sugar friend consultation:
I have diabetes, can I have children?
In fact, for the vast majority of sugar lovers, they can have children.
However, sugar lovers must pay attention to the following two points when making pregnancy plans.
First, women need to change their oral medicine to insulin.
Whether oral hypoglycemic drugs have influence and damage on human germ cells has not yet been determined.
However, to be on the safe side, it is suggested that under the guidance of doctors, it is best to stop taking oral medicine six months in advance and switch to insulin therapy to avoid unnecessary risks.
Second, both husband and wife should do a good job of screening.
Woman: It is suggested to go to gynecology department to check whether ovulation is normal. Ketone body, urine protein, renal function and fundus examination also need to be evaluated. If there is diabetic ketoacidosis, it is not suitable to prepare for pregnancy and needs to be hospitalized immediately. If there is severe diabetic retinopathy (such as massive fundus hemorrhage or retinal detachment) and renal function caused by diabetic nephropathy continues to deteriorate, pregnancy should not be carried out immediately, and the disease must be treated first.
Man: It is suggested to go to the hospital for routine semen examination to see how many and quality sperm are and how to understand their fertility.
However, although diabetes has a certain genetic tendency, the risk of diabetes for children of sugar fathers and sugar mothers is greater than that for ordinary children, but this does not mean that children will definitely suffer from diabetes.
Moreover, we cannot blame all the sins on genetic genes. Sometimes the influence of environment is greater than that of heredity.
For sugar parents and sugar mothers, it is necessary to cultivate the healthy living habits of the baby from an early age. Balanced diet, regular exercise and regular physical examination are all helpful to help the baby grow up healthily.
By controlling blood sugar, sugar lovers can coexist peacefully with diabetes.
In fact, because of diabetes, sugar lovers know more about the control of healthy life, the need for a balanced diet and the importance of reasonable exercise.
Is it more promising for the future to be a sugar friend with restraint, taste and pursuit?
