Diabetes Recipe Chestnut Stewed Vegetable Heart

Autumn and winter are a season to test diabetics. On the one hand, sympathetic nerve excitation is caused by lower temperature, blood sugar metabolism is slowed down, blood sugar level is increased, and outdoor sports activities will be reduced at the same time. On the other hand, people have the instinct to keep out the cold and store heat, which makes them easy to have a big appetite and eat too much. At the same time, the abundant seasonal products in autumn and winter also follow the laws of nature and often reserve higher nutrients (i.e. More sugar and starch) than in spring and summer. Like chestnuts, persimmons, sweet potatoes, pumpkins and pomegranates, they all make people love them. However, Read More …

There are also many weight-loss drugs that have been approved by the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) that have not yet entered the Chinese market or have not been approved for weight-loss indications by the CFDA.

Obesity is a disease in itself, according to the American Medical Association

In 2013, after a heated debate, the American Medical Association finally decided that [obesity itself is a disease]. The impact of obesity on health may be much more serious than we thought. Are you really [fat]? In life, We often distinguish fat from thin by weight, This method is simple but incorrect.

Can diabetics eat fruit?

As an extremely harmful and deceptive pseudoscientific conclusion, [diabetic patients cannot eat fruits] is widely circulated in the society. I once received a representative diabetic patient who has not touched fruits for more than ten years. His logical deduction is very simple: cannot eat sweets + fruits are very sweet and cannot eat fruits. The poor ten years or so are personal tragedies and dereliction of duty in diabetes health education. In the Internet era, the high-speed dissemination of information is a double-edged sword. As a doctor, one must use this sword well to make and transmit scientific voices. Glycemic index (GI) Assuming that we organized all the food to take an examination, The test question is the ability of Read More …

Strict Will + Strict Execution: No Invincible Obesity

The harm of obesity to people is far more than the decline of physical beauty. What is more serious is that obesity is a hotbed for various diseases, such as diabetes, hypertension, hyperlipidemia, gout, fatty liver, sleep apnea, osteoarthritis, cardiovascular and cerebrovascular diseases, sexual insufficiency and even malignant tumors. For the importance and necessity of losing weight, we should have a full understanding and be ready to fight a [protracted war]. However, before going to war, one question needs to be understood first: Am I fat? Do I need to lose weight? ] At present, the absurdity of obesity treatment also lies in this: those who are always clamoring for weight loss are often not fat at all; However, those Read More …

Is gout hereditary?

Hyperuricemia and gout, as common diseases, have a very high prevalence rate, which I believe is no stranger to everyone. As a metabolic disease, it is often accompanied by hypertension, coronary heart disease, diabetes and other diseases, causing harm to health. Due to economic development and lifestyle changes, the incidence of gout in China has been on the rise year by year. In the past, it was considered to be more common in male and elderly patients, and gradually began to appear in some young patients. If the elders suffer from gout, they cannot help worrying about themselves: will gout be inherited? Will I have gout in the future? Is gout hereditary? It is really hard to say, because the Read More …

Weight is not the only thing that decides whether you are fat or not.

The 31-year-old pony has been suffering from type 2 diabetes for more than a year. His blood sugar control is very good and there are no complications. He came to see a doctor that day and gave me a very beautiful blood sugar monitoring table. He asked me: [Is that all right? ] I shook my head and said, “No, you have to lose weight.” Do you think I am fat? ] He paused and looked puzzled: [I’m not overweight, why should I lose weight? ] [Weight is good, but waist circumference exceeds the standard, which is also obesity! ] I laughed, [Fat or not, it’s not just weight that has the final say! ] If you still think that Read More …
