Young people hit by chronic diseases


Chronic diseases are like an iceberg floating in the ocean. Those common and confirmed chronic diseases are the tip of the iceberg, while the main body of the iceberg hidden in the dark sea water is more undiscovered or neglected health hazards.


In recent years, the trend of chronic diseases becoming younger is more and more obvious. Chronic diseases such as hypertension, diabetes, chronic nephritis and fatty liver are no longer the patents of the elderly.

You should know that in the past, chronic diseases were also called geriatric diseases, and most of the patients were over 50 or 60 years old. Now, teenagers may be diagnosed with diabetes, and it is not a case. After the routine physical examination every year, some young workers who are new to the workplace will make fun of their abnormal indicators……


Some young people are used to sitting and staying up late, causing serious chronic diseases, such as cardiovascular diseases, and accompanied by complications.

Some young people suffer from high blood pressure, diabetes and some types of tumors, and then suffer from panic, headache, irritability and other symptoms……

Young people in their twenties are in the prime of life. How can they get chronic diseases? If you leave this question to doctors, most of the answers will point to the changes in the lifestyle of contemporary young people.

When a young man has problems with his way of life, such as staying up late, high pressure at work, long-term mental stress, unhealthy diet, and so on, the combination of these factors will rapidly amplify the originally small physical diseases until various symptoms appear.


As more and more young people are obsessed with chronic diseases, how to save themselves and get rid of chronic diseases has become a new problem for young people.

Some young people started"Punk health care", beer with wolfberry, cola with codonopsis pilosula, smoke with a throat piece, drink salt water after crying, hot pot barbecue with herbal tea, stay up the latest night, use the most expensive skin care products, drink the strongest wine, take the most expensive ambulance

Some young people began to try to change their lifestyle, such as changing the habit of staying up late, turning off the computer early in the evening, turning the cell phone rest screen into silent mode, cultivating sleepiness in bed, and striving for a good sleep.

In addition to young people, what is more worrying is that our teenagers and even children have become the incidence of chronic diseases.


As people's lives are filled with more and more electronic products, such as mobile phones and computers, especially during the epidemic, many students have online classes at home, and electronic products are used more frequently. However, playing with mobile phones for a long time and sitting for a long time do great harm to the cervical spine, which will lead to the deterioration of the cervical spine and make more and more teenagers and even children suffer from cervical spondylosis.

In addition, China's teenagers and children are seriously lack of exercise. According to a survey, most primary and secondary school students lack physical activity every dayOne hour, which has led to an increase in the rate of overweight and obesity in adolescents and children year by year, providing a hotbed for the development of chronic diseases in adolescents and children.


According to the survey data, the number of cardiovascular patients in China is about290 million, of which adolescent patients with cardiovascular disease should not be ignored. According to other data, the prevalence of hypertension in children in China is about 14.5%, and it tends to increase with age.

With the improvement of living conditions, lifestyle changes and the improvement of life expectancy per capita, chronic diseases such as diabetes and hypertension have become a problem that puzzles the health of Chinese people. Due to the lack of health concepts and chronic disease management, most chronic patients, especially young people, did not pay attention at the initial stage of illness, and delayed for various reasons, leading to increasingly serious illness, even serious complications.

For young people, early prevention of chronic diseases such as hypertension and diabetes is even more important than treatment.


It is most important to prevent chronic diseases and maintain a healthy lifestyle. What kind of lifestyle is healthy? The World Health Organization has given the answer, that is"Four cornerstones of health" - reasonable diet, proper exercise, smoking cessation and alcohol restriction, and psychological balance.

At the same time, China also advocates"Three reductions and three health", that is, reducing salt, oil and sugar, healthy mouth, healthy weight and healthy bones. These healthy lifestyles are crucial to reducing chronic diseases such as diabetes, hypertension and cardiovascular disease.
