In the Spring Festival, it is rare to take a long vacation. Apart from having dinner with family members, various recreational activities are also indispensable.
However, there are some recreational activities that sugar lovers need to pay special attention to. Dr. Clove summed up 5 recreational activities that need to be paid attention to or even avoided. Come and have a look at them quickly.
Playing cards and mahjong: walk a lot
Poker and mahjong should be regarded as one of the most popular entertainment activities. However, when you are entertaining, don’t forget your own situation.
Hyperglycemia makes blood in a state of hypercoagulable, and when sitting for a long time, lower limb blood circulation is not good, it is easy to form deep vein thrombosis. These thrombosis may fall off, forming small emboli, along with the blood running to some small blood vessels, blocking some parts of the blood vessels, and even may cause pulmonary embolism, even sudden death.
In addition, sedentary and lack of exercise are not conducive to the blood sugar control of sugar lovers.
Therefore, when you play cards and mahjong, remember to get up and exercise frequently, find a few more people to play together, [take turns to sit in the village], in this way, having fun is also helpful to prevent possible health damage.
If you always forget to get up, you can drink more water [force] yourself to get up and walk: I believe no one wants to pee his pants during the Chinese New Year.
Staying up late to stay up: Enough is enough,
Staying up late can cause blood sugar fluctuations.
On the one hand, disrupting the daily routine will disturb the biological clock of hormone secretion. Once you stay up late, some hormones that are not secreted at night, such as cortisol, may be secreted more, resulting in an increase in blood sugar.
On the other hand, if you don’t supplement energy in time when you stay up late, it may lead to hypoglycemia. On the contrary, if you eat too much because you stay up late, your blood sugar will rise.
In this way, it is not difficult to understand the fluctuation of blood sugar caused by staying up late.
Therefore, it is enough for everyone to stay up late to keep up with the New Year. If you are hungry during the New Year, you can drink a glass of milk, soya-bean milk or eat a petal of grapefruit. Don’t eat too many snacks. Look at the Spring Festival Gala. When the New Year bell rings, you should go to bed. Only when you have a good sleep can you be energetic to welcome the first day of the New Year.
Foot Bath and Pedicure: Caution Needs
Some friends, after a hard year, may choose to go to the foot bath hall and bubble their feet to relax. However, we should be especially cautious about soaking our feet in the foot bath.
Hyperglycemia will affect the nerves of the foot, causing the skin of the foot to pain, temperature is not sensitive or even lost. In this way, it is easy to cause wounds, and it is difficult to find wounds. In addition, blood vessel damage, poor blood circulation, once the wound is caused, healing is also difficult. Therefore, sugar friends’ feet are easily injured and even lead to infection.
In the process of foot bath, the water temperature of soaking feet is high and the time is long, which is easy to cause low temperature scalding of feet. In some foot bath care, the action of rubbing feet vigorously may also scratch the skin and cause foot wounds.
At the same time, nail cutting, exfoliation and other operations during pedicure are extremely easy to damage the skin. If these wounds are not properly cared for, they may lead to infection.
Therefore, friends with diabetes must be cautious when going to foot bath shops and pedicure shops, and it is best not to go. If you are a sugar friend who has been diagnosed with diabetic foot or lower limb vascular disease, you should avoid it.
Soaking in Hot Springs: Need Caution
Just like avoiding foot bath, we need to pay special attention to the cryogenic scalding of skin caused by hot spring water. If there is a wound on the skin, bathing is also easy to cause infection.
If you have already made a reservation to go to the hot spring, make sure that there is no wound on your body before going into the water. Please ask relatives and friends to make sure that the water temperature is appropriate, not to be hot before going into the water, and not to soak in the water for a long time.
You can take a walk and relax in places with good scenery and air, while some hot spring clubs also have gymnasiums. You can use the gymnasiums in hot spring clubs and exercise with dumbbells, treadmills, etc.
Attention should also be paid to these amusement park projects.
If you go to an amusement park, you also need to pay attention.
Projects such as roller coasters, bungee jumping and haunted houses do bring incomparable sensory stimulation and decompression. However, they also cause a large amount of release of blood sugar-raising hormones such as epinephrine and cortisol in the body, resulting in a sharp rise in blood sugar, which is not conducive to blood sugar control for sugar lovers.
In addition, for sugar lovers complicated with diabetic retinopathy, the diseased retina is more difficult to bear the shock and impact of recreational facilities such as roller coasters on the head, which may lead to serious consequences such as retinal detachment.
Compared with the thrilling amusement facilities, you can choose to visit temple fairs and Lantern Festival, which are full of flavor in recent years.
