Elderly winter health care needs to prevent common diseases
In winter, the incidence of common diseases in many elderly people is increasing.
Experts suggest that winter health care for the elderly needs to be prevented from several common diseases.
First of all, we must prevent stomach problems.
Older people with stomach problems are most likely to relapse in the winter.
Because the body’s stomach secretion increases after the cold, it will shrink contraction contraction for a long time, leading to complications such as stomach pain, stomach bleeding, and gastric perforation.
Therefore, the elderly in the winter should pay attention to the stomach to keep warm, diet should be light, try to eat less meals, avoid acid, spicy and cold, but also quit smoking and alcohol, and actively participate in sports activities as far as possible, to avoid recurrence of stomach disease.
The second is anti-itch.
Itching is a common disease in the elderly in winter.
This is because the skin of the elderly is degenerative, the sebaceous gland function is reduced, and the sebum secretion is reduced. In addition, the winter weather is cold and the climate is dry, which makes the skin of the elderly more dry and sensitive to external stimuli, causing itching.
Therefore, the elderly should pay attention to diet conditioning, eat more fresh vegetables, fruits and soy products, fasting peppers, garlic and other irritating foods and fried, hot and other foods.
The third is to prevent heart stalks.
Winter is the peak season of acute myocardial infarction in the elderly. It is mainly caused by cold stimulation of the human body, causing vasoconstriction, increased fibrinogen in the blood, and increased blood viscosity, leading to thrombosis.
Therefore, the elderly need to be cold-proof and warm, according to the weather changes, add clothing, shoes and hats at any time to prevent cold and evil invasion.
Regular cardiovascular system examinations are also required. Usually, some thrombolytic, lipid-lowering, vasodilator and anti-myocardial infarction, hypoxia drugs are added.
The room temperature is preferably controlled at 18 degrees Celsius to -20 ° C and the relative humidity is between 40% and 50%.
