Dietary treatment of diabetic patients in summer
Generally speaking, during summer, the blood sugar levels in the human body are at their lowest stage of the year, close to normal.
This is mainly because in summer, the secretion of adrenaline, which fights against cold, is reduced in the human body, and insulin can play its role more fully; In summer, the weather is stuffy and hot, and people generally experience a decrease in appetite and carbohydrate intake; In addition, with an increase in outdoor activities, the utilization of blood sugar has increased.
In addition, the daytime time in summer is longer, and the heat makes it difficult for people to fall asleep, which can lead to insufficient sleep, heat dissipation in the body, vigorous metabolism in the body, and an increase in relative blood sugar consumption.
Therefore, when diabetes patients measure their blood sugar, they often find that the blood sugar level in summer is lower than that in other seasons. It can be said that summer is the best time for the treatment of diabetes patients. On the basis of conventional treatment, diet therapy can achieve twice the result with half the effort in controlling blood sugar.
Fruits are edible. In midsummer, all kinds of delicious fruits are on the market. For many patients with diabetes, it is tempting. The question of whether patients can eat fruits or not? How to control the amount of fruit they eat at the factory has left patients confused. Some patients also consider fruits as a prohibited area and dare not take a step beyond the limit. When they really want to eat, they also say, 'I'll eat the skin when others eat melons.'. It should be said that it is unnecessary for diabetes patients to completely fast on fruit. In addition to fructose and sucrose, a considerable portion of the sugar in fruits exists in the form of polysaccharides (such as pectin and dietary fiber), and the human body absorbs pectin and dietary fiber slowly or even without absorption.
So, eating fruits such as peaches, grapefruit, hawthorn, cranberries, kiwifruit, and pears that contain pectin and are rich in dietary fiber appropriately will not cause significant fluctuations in blood sugar. In addition, pectin and dietary fiber can also help delay gastric emptying, increase satiety, and promote toxin excretion. Many patients ask if they can eat watermelon? To be sure, watermelon is edible. Although watermelon is relatively sweet, it contains more water and less sugar, starch, and fat, so it produces less calories and does not have a significant impact on blood sugar.
However, it is important to eat in moderation. If you eat half a catty of watermelon, eat less rice. Generally, 3 pounds of watermelon is equivalent to half or two of rice. Adjust your daily diet according to the amount of fruit you eat, so you don't have to worry about eating fruits that may affect your blood sugar or regret having to eat watermelon peel. The same goes for eating other fruits, such as half a pear, which means eating one bite less of rice; Eat half an apple and eat two bites less rice.
The current diet concept of diabetes is "high carbohydrate, low fat", that is to say, the restrictions on fat have become more strict, and the restrictions on carbohydrates have accordingly been relaxed.
