Nutrition, exercise, and a good mood are essential for preventing "wolves" with three killer weapons


Systemic lupus erythematosus is a systemic disease with multiple system impairments. Patients with lupus use hormones and immunosuppressants for a long time, resulting in a decrease in resistance. In the alternating seasons of summer and autumn, slight negligence can easily lead to colds, and the condition can recur. Therefore, it is important to start with nutrition, exercise, and maintaining a good mood to control the progression of the disease and improve the quality of life. From the perspective of traditional Chinese medicine, the basic pathogenesis of systemic lupus erythematosus is yin deficiency and internal heat, and the diet should mainly focus on nourishing yin and clearing heat. Eat more fresh vegetables and fruits, eat more high protein, low fat, low sugar, and low salt foods, and recommend nut foods rich in vitamin E. Patients with kidney damage should be supplemented with sufficient high-quality protein, such as milk, eggs, lean meat, fish and shrimp. Patients who take glucocorticoid for a long time should properly control their diet, mainly with low sugar and low salt diet, and beware of diabetes and hypertension. During the day, the sun is scorching, and for lupus patients who need sunscreen, they can take calcitriol or alpha calcitriol to supplement active vitamin D; It is also advisable to consume light sensitive fruits, such as guava, kiwi, strawberries, etc., which are rich in vitamin C; Eat less foods that enhance photosensitivity, such as figs, rapeseed, celery, shiitake mushrooms, and agaric. Lupus patients should adhere to appropriate exercise when their condition permits. Moderate weight bearing exercise can increase subperiosteal bone deposition, increase cortical bone area and strength, and help prevent osteoporosis. 3-4 weight-bearing exercises per week, and excessive exercise is prohibited. Patients with lupus should individualize their exercise volume, with the intensity of slight muscle soreness and fatigue after each exercise, which should disappear after rest, such as brisk walking, dumbbell exercises, Tai Chi, yoga, cycling, swimming, etc. By consuming a high calcium diet, supplementing calcium supplements, exercising more, and taking bone protectants according to medical advice, it is possible to prevent or delay bone loss and osteoporosis. Adverse emotions are also an important triggering factor for lupus. Traditional Chinese medicine regards music, dance, painting, calligraphy, etc. as good means to cultivate emotions, relieve worries, and relieve anxiety. Patients should avoid tension and anxiety, maintain a positive and optimistic attitude, which is conducive to establishing a balance of their own immunity, as well as rehabilitation and stability of the condition.
