Xinhuanet Urumqi November 13th (Jia Zengkuan) In recent years, with the improvement of people’s living standards and lifestyle changes, the prevalence of diabetes in children is becoming increasingly severe. The incidence of diabetes in children in Xinjiang has increased year by year, especially the incidence of type 2 diabetes has shown a rapid upward trend.
November 14th is “World Diabetes Day”, and Li Kaili, director of the Department of Endocrinology at Xinjiang Hospital of Traditional Chinese Medicine, reminds people to scientifically prevent and treat childhood diabetes.
According to Li Kaili, clinical data show that more than 80% of diabetic patients have a history of obesity, especially in recent years, children’s overweight and obesity rates have risen sharply, which is the main cause of increased diabetes incidence. .
Li Kaili reminds parents to pay attention to “Little Pit”. Too much nutrient intake will increase the body’s metabolic burden, and “Puffy Pier” may have internal environmental disorders such as insulin resistance, metabolic syndrome or signs of diabetes.
Li Kaili suggested that parents should correct their bad habits such as picky eaters, no breakfast, and no sports. At the same time, don’t help your child deliberately lose weight. Children are at an important stage of growth and development. If children are chronically hungry, they will greatly affect their physical and intellectual development.
