Diabetes mellitus is a group of metabolic diseases characterized by "high blood sugar". Hyperglycemia is caused by a defect in insulin secretion or impairment of its biological action, or both. The long-term presence of hyperglycemia leads to chronic damage and dysfunction of various tissues, especially the eyes, kidneys, heart, blood vessels, and nerves.
Recently, it has been suggested that eating eggs also increases the risk of diabetes.
The results of a study reported in the British Journal of Nutrition said that eggs are a "catalyst" for diabetes, and that eating one egg a day increases the risk of developing diabetes by 60%. The study compared the relationship between egg consumption and diabetes and found that eating more eggs may increase the risk of developing diabetes.
Is it really so harmful to eat an egg? Doctors and everyone to take a look at the small egg in the article what exactly.
What are the early symptoms of diabetes?
First of all, there are three more and one less, drinking more water, urinating more, and eating more but having significant weight loss problems.
Second, overweight, with a body fat percentage above the international constant 30.
Third, it is particularly easy to catch a cold and have a small problem with fever.
Fourth, high blood sugar can be accompanied by poor wound healing.
Fifth, darkening of the skin at the back of the neck in the armpit appears as black echinoderma.
Sixth, the body's metabolic capacity disorders, endocrine disorders.
Seventh, diabetes severely up compresses the retinal vascular nerves and induces blurred vision.
Eighth, the presence of comorbid triglyceride insulin resistance.
Eggs, is it really a "death knell" for diabetes? Authoritative research results are published, take a look!
The United States has conducted an experimental study of this claim in the United University, and the British Journal of Nutrition has the results of this study, from which it can be concluded that if you eat an egg a day, the probability of developing diabetes and will increase by 63.5%.
The experiment involved more than 8,000 people and was conducted over a period of 10 years, with long-term follow-up studies and six planned trials of the egg diet.
In November 2009, fasting blood glucose tests on the experimental data of the study revealed that about 15% of the people suffered from diabetes, which, as we can see from the data, is proportional to the amount of eggs consumed daily
If a person consumes more than 10-22 grams of eggs per day, the probability of developing diabetes increases by 63.5%; if a person obtains more than 36 grams of eggs per day, the probability of developing diabetes increases by 68%.
From this study, it is easy to find out that an excessive amount of eggs every day makes it easy for diabetes to find its way to your door, and it is not easy to feel worried.
Chinese people can have such a strong body, the egg is the credit, eggs are known as the "whole nutrition treasury". Egg whites contain the highest biological value of protein among all types of food proteins, with all the essential amino acids, and are easy to digest and absorb, known as the "perfect protein model".
Egg yolk contains vitamins, minerals, lecithin, lutein and other nutrients, which are very beneficial to human health. As the saying goes, "there are many rights and wrongs in red eggs".
But some people spread the word, so the claim that you can't eat eggs with diabetes, is there a scientific basis for it or not? Let us analyze it in detail below.
People who ate more than 37.6 grams of eggs per day had a 65% increased risk of developing diabetes. This study is somewhat limited because eggs are not the only potential factor affecting blood sugar, but also age, gender, education level, smoking, alcohol consumption, exercise, etc.
After adjusting these factors, the correlation between eggs and diabetes is not really obvious, and there is no causal relationship between eggs and diabetes. As long as eggs are consumed reasonably, not only will they not make the body sick, but they will also strengthen the body.
So do not blindly deny the existence of a food, after all, the most important thing we still need to rationalize each kind of food, in order to achieve a real strong and healthy effect.
Can diabetes be "cured"?
Many people who suffer from diabetes hope to be cured, but everyone has a different understanding of cured.
Because once you have diabetes, you need to take medication for a long time to control your blood sugar. After your blood sugar is stable, there may be a period of time when you don't need to take medication or injections, and you can keep your blood sugar stable by simply relying on a controlled diet and proper exercise.
Most people need long-term medication to maintain normal blood sugar, because the daily medication is excreted daily with the metabolism of the liver and kidneys, without the effect of drugs blood sugar will rise again.
When blood sugar rises again, blood vessels and nerves are immersed in high sugar for a long time, complications of heart, brain, blood vessels, eyes, kidneys, nerves, etc. can occur. The aim of treatment is to bring down blood sugar through diet control, proper exercise, and then combine it with medication so that one's blood vessels and nerves are not soaked in sugar water, and the chance of complications will be small.
Therefore, patients with diabetes need long-term treatment. If they are treated well and their blood sugar is controlled within a stable range for a long time, they will not develop complications and will not affect their life expectancy and quality of life.
