Li Junhai that lower extremity arterial occlusive disease is the most common diabetic vascular disease, because atherosclerosis leading to stenosis or occlusion of blood vessels caused by insufficient blood supply to the local body. Disease in patients with diabetes than those without diabetes high 11 times, 50 to 70-year-old high, and extend the duration increased with age, the incidence rate increased male prevalence than women. The smoking habit, while hypertension, high cholesterol, high blood sugar in men with diabetes duration of more than 5 years the disease may occur. With the growing number of diabetes, they will suffer decline, lower extremity arterial occlusive disease has become increasingly evident trend of younger, 40-year-old patient has been unusual.|
Arteriosclerosis obliterans of the early symptoms of cold legs, legs temperature apparent inconsistency. Further development of the disease into the limp period, that patient calf muscle pain when walking a little stiff after the break, the pain go away, continue to walk the same symptoms appeared. Master Liu is in the summer state of intermittent claudication. At this point if not timely intervention, will enter the period of rest pain, manifested as severe cold lower limbs, numbness, pain even when not walking, pain at night often, most patients seek medical treatment at this time, but also to get surgery. Finally, gangrene period, severe lower limb ischemia, leading to black necrotic leg ulcers or toe, this phase patients often face amputation. Diabetic amputation in patients with arteriosclerosis obliterans of the share is very high. leg cramps calcium own health counterproductive hot feet adversely affected by illness
Li Junhai said, long-term high blood sugar cause damage to the arteries occurs in most patients with diabetes leg pain symptoms, severe cases may develop lower extremity arterial occlusive disease. Some diabetic patients after lower limb pain is often thought that the age, environment and other factors of bone and joint diseases. With the development of the disease, will be the same as Master Liu to take some self-care measures to alleviate the pain, but these measures are often incorrect accelerate the process of lower extremity arterial occlusive disease, or cover up the symptoms, which adversely affected by illness, so missed some of the best diabetes treatment period.
First of all, Master Liu leg cramps are actually lower extremity arterial occlusion of the early symptoms. The impact of advertising by the health care products, in the treatment of lower extremity arterial occlusion, more than half of patients have cramps in the performance, but almost everyone's first reaction is that a calcium deficiency, diabetes, and in fact over the age of 60 leg cramps at night mostly lower extremity arterial occlusive disease response. This is because many of these people have the phenomenon of atherosclerosis, narrowing of lower limb vascular insufficiency, poor circulation, the situation is more common. When the activities, muscle contraction and relaxation of the legs squeeze blood vessels, speed up blood flow, leg still capable of maintaining normal blood circulation; rest or sleep, leg blood flow slows down, blood metabolites can not be taken away in time, accumulate in the leg muscles to achieve a certain concentration, they stimulate muscle contraction, the occurrence of leg cramps phenomenon. leg cramps in the elderly is recommended before haste calcium, preferably to the investigation of vascular disease after surgery supplemented later than.
Secondly, Master Liu is also a cold leg numbness main symptoms of lower extremity arterial occlusion, and a considerable number of old people will be classified as a cold leg, so hot foot bath or massage to choose health care, everyone knows that diabetes is extremely dangerous. Patients with diabetic lower limb ischemia is usually insensitive limb nerve, likely to cause burns or ulceration due to undetected infection, and worse, may lead to serious amputation.
Strict control of blood sugar to prevent diabetes, arterial occlusive vascular ultrasound done every year.
