Men spend most of their energy on work, sacrificing sleep and diet for promotion and salary increase, so their health is deteriorating.
Many men have the wrong concept of health, even if there are health problems, they are delayed again and again, so that minor illnesses become major diseases, which are very difficult to treat.
What misconceptions should men corrected ?
1. Snoring is a minor problem
Many men, especially obese people, snore when they sleep, which is not a minor problem, nor does it mean that they sleep soundly. Some snorers are accompanied by sleep apnea syndrome, which reduces the oxygen content in the blood and causes ischemia and hypoxia in important organs, resulting in organ dysfunction and even sudden death during sleep. If you often snore while sleeping, you should sleep on your side, lose weight in time and cooperate with the doctor’s treatment.
2. Young people don’t suffer from heart disease.
Age and cardiovascular disease can not be directly linked, and stroke and myocardial infarction are not exclusive to the elderly. Nowadays, with the improvement of people’s living standard and lifestyle, the diet tends to be high in fat, sugar and refinement, and the daily physical activity is very small, so cardiovascular and cerebrovascular diseases tend to be younger, even young people can not take chances. Young men need to know their own risk factors for cardiovascular disease, actively control various indicators, and reduce the risk of disease.
3. Physical health does not require physical examination.
Most men have the perception that there is no need for physical examination without physical discomfort. However, most diseases have no obvious symptoms in the early stage, and when they feel uncomfortable, they have reached the middle and late stages.
Take hyperlipidemia and hypertension for example, there are no specific symptoms in the early stage, which can damage cardiovascular and cerebrovascular systems, induce atherosclerosis, and lead to acute myocardial infarction and cerebral infarction.
Even if there is no physical discomfort, men over 40 years old should have regular physical examinations, preliminary understanding of blood sugar, blood pressure and blood lipid levels, and regular screening for cancer according to their own conditions.
4. Smoking and drinking to relieve sorrow
In the face of work or life problems, many men smoke and drink to relieve their worries, which not only fails to relieve their worries, but also damages their health and increases the risk of chronic diseases.
5. Men do not need sunscreen
Although sunshine can make the body produce vitamin D and promote calcium absorption, we should grasp the degree. Intense ultraviolet radiation may cause sunburn and even skin cancer. Therefore, men should also do a good job of sunscreen, apply sunscreen when going out, and reduce ultraviolet radiation.
Men should abandon the above misconceptions and understand scientific health care methods. Give up the bad habit of smoking and drinking, know how to relieve emotions, through outdoor sports, communication with others, painting or deep breathing to relieve stress.
At the same time, they should pay attention to their own symptoms, and if they are not feeling well, they should see a doctor immediately.
