Patients with kidney syndrome in hot summer

The scorching sun is hot, and the scorching heat is hard to stop. Summer feels like this. Don’t say that you are sick. It is not easy for normal people to comfortably spend the summer. For patients suffering from nephrotic syndrome (renal syndrome), we should pay more attention to all aspects of life. Patients with kidney syndrome in the hot summer have such illness in the “kidney”, and sleep is better. The main symptoms of most patients with kidney syndrome are puffiness and fatigue, so adequate sleep and rest are necessary. Patients should adapt to the changing laws of the weather and develop good living habits. It is best to have a 30 to 40-minute nap every day. A lunch break is very beneficial for physical recovery. If conditions permit, walk in the evening. Rest early in the evening to reduce physical exertion. Nowadays, air conditioners have entered thousands of households, making summer seem to be much better than in the past, but because of the disease in the “kidney”, you must be careful when using the air conditioner. The temperature should be adjusted to 5-6 degrees Celsius lower than the outdoor temperature. Pay attention to avoiding cold caused by cold and overheating, leading to aggravation or relapse. Patients with kidney syndrome in the hot summer have had watermelon in this way. There are many varieties of vegetables and fruits in summer, which attracts appetite, especially cold drinks-“no pain, not enough to be addictive.” Of course, for patients without edema, the water intake can be appropriately relaxed, but patients with obvious edema must control the water intake. For example, eating watermelon can diuretic and reduce swelling, heat and heat, but for patients with kidney syndrome who need to limit water intake, eating more watermelon will cause water retention in the body, aggravate the condition, and induce cardiovascular complications. In addition, excessive urine excretion will increase the loss of protein and other nutrients in the body. Patients with kidney syndrome can try the following diet therapy: ① Black fish winter melon soup: one black fish, eviscerated, without salt, and served with winter melon soup. ② Amomum steamed crucian carp: one crucian carp, gutted, 6 grams of amomum, 3 grams of licorice, into the belly of the fish, stitched with thread, and taken after stewing. ③ Astragalus stewed hen: one hen, 120 grams of astragalus, stewed to eat meat. In the hot summer, patients with kidney syndrome have been swimming like this, and taking as little exercise as possible can help to restore physical fitness and relieve the condition. However, it is necessary to pay attention to mastering the amount of exercise, as long as there is no feeling of fatigue. Although swimming is a good summer sport, but because swimming requires a lot of physical strength and the sanitation of the swimming site is not guaranteed, it is recommended that patients with kidney syndrome do not go swimming. Patients with serious illnesses should minimize outdoor activities, especially those with obvious puffiness, should stay in bed as much as possible. To a certain extent, bed rest not only helps diuresis, but also reduces dangerous complications such as heart failure and hypertensive encephalopathy, and prevents the deterioration of renal function. However, it should be noted that in bed in summer for a long time, there is more sweating, and patients with kidney syndrome are in a hypercoagulable state. The probability of venous thrombosis is very high. Therefore, it is necessary to pay attention to maintaining proper bed and bedside activities while staying in bed. In addition, due to the loss of a large number of proteins in the kidney, patients with kidney syndrome are relatively weak and vulnerable to infection. Try not to go to public places to avoid infection of respiratory diseases. Avoid sun exposure to prevent skin inflammation, especially in patients with obvious puffiness. The skin is thin and delicate due to puffiness, so you should pay more attention to it. As long as the kidney patients pay attention to the above points and take appropriate measures, it is safe to spend the summer.
