4 Methods to Help You Stabilize Blood Glucose Level
Blood glucose reflects the condition of Diabetes. Only when blood glucose is controlled at a relatively satisfactory level can diabetes be effectively controlled and complications can be delayed. So how to keep blood glucose stable? Here are four ways.
1. Regular exercises
Regular exercise can not only improve physical fitness and disease resistance, but also increase the sensitivity of muscle tissue and other tissues to insulin, reduce the resistance of tissues in diabetic patients to insulin, increase the utilization of sugar, improve metabolism, and reduce blood glucose. Therefore, diabetic patients can choose suitable exercise items to do, such as walking, jogging, taijiquan, etc., and the safest is walking. If you can insist on 30-40 minutes of walking in the morning and evening every day for long term, it will be of great benefit to stable blood sugar.
2. Proper diet control
The correct diet is that all foods containing artificial sugar should not be eaten, and all grains, vegetables, fish and eggs can be eaten, but to limit the intake. According to each person's standard weight and daily physical activity, to estimate the amount of calories needed to eat. Carbohydrates are the main source of calories. Patients without activity can eat 200-250 grams of staple food every day. 250-300 grams for light manual workers, 300-400 grams for moderate manual workers, and more than 400 grams for heavy manual workers. Diabetics should also reduce their protein intake, which is about 1 g/kg for adults. And fat intake is about 0.8-1 g/kg.
3. Quit smoking and drinking strictly
Smoking and drinking can lead to unstable blood glucose, because alcohol and tobacco have interference effects on hypoglycemic, hypotensive and lipid-lowering drugs so as to reduce the efficacy, and at the same time have certain toxicity, promoting the occurrence and development of diabetes complications. Therefore, diabetic patients must quit smoking and drinking.
4. Correct treatment
Correct treatment of diabetes is to pay attention to early treatment. The earlier, the better.
-Early detection, try to find abnormalities in the stage of impaired glucose tolerance or impaired fasting glucose, and take intervention measures as early as possible to prevent the development of diabetes.
-Adhere to treatment. As long as blood sugar level is controlled into the normal range, diabetics can work and study like normal people, but do not stop taking drugs at will.
-To have comprehensive treatment. Diabetes cannot be controlled by drugs alone. It must be controlled by a reasonable diet, regular aerobic exercise, self-regulation of emotions, regular and quantitative medication, and regular testing of blood glucose, blood pressure and lipid.
