Prostate protection methods and precautions
The weather has recently turned cooler, the cold winter air is approaching, and the prostate will also enter a difficult period. To protect the male prostate, we need to plan ahead and prepare all-round homework. Today is the "Men's Health Day", and Li Hongjun, chief physician of the Department of Urology, Peking Union Medical College Hospital, will sort out the "Prostate Protection Knowledge Collection" for everyone.
The prostate is very cold
The prostate is particularly prone to "tanning", especially to the cold "very cold". The onset of prostate disease has obvious seasonality. Cold weather makes the prostate sensitive to glandular contraction, glandular ducts and vasodilation, resulting in chronic congestion, resulting in increased pressure in the urethra, causing reflux, aggravating the accumulation of prostate fluid, and prone to frequent urination. Urgency, dysuria, pain in the perineum, lower abdomen, and testicles. In fact, whenever the weather is cold, the number of prostate disease patients who go to the hospital to see a doctor increases sharply. What makes many doctors a headache is that the treatment effect is often not satisfactory. People in the industry know that the treatment of prostate disease in winter is easy to get tired and not pleased, and the treatment of prostate disease in spring season can be said to be twice the result with half the effort. This is all seasons and weather at work! Therefore, in the cold season, in order to avoid or alleviate the symptoms of prostate disease, we should pay more attention to understand some prostate preferences and dislikes.
Drink plenty of water, the prostate is afraid of concentrated urine
When the weather becomes cold, most people drink less water, and drinking less water has become an inevitable trend in the cold season. Decreasing the amount of drinking water will inevitably make the urine concentrated and the frequency of urination will be reduced. The toxic and harmful substances in the urine are very harmful to the health of tissues and organs. Therefore, in the cold season, you still need to drink more water and urinate more. Drink more than 2 liters of boiled water or tea a day, and use urine to fully flush the urethra, which is beneficial to the discharge of prostate secretions and prevents repeated infections of the prostate, even if it is frequent urination. Patients with prostate disease should also drink more water. In order to avoid rest after sleep due to overfilling of the bladder and frequent rises at night, you can reduce the amount of water you drink at night and drink more during the day. Urinate more and don’t hold back urine. The prostate is afraid of being squeezed. No matter how much water you drink, you will often feel urge to urinate in cold weather. However, the attitude of “bearing for a while” when urinating is not desirable. Holding back urine will over-fill the bladder and press on the prostate, making it bloody, congested and swollen. For men, holding back urine can easily cause urine reflux, harm the kidneys and ureters, and even cause urinary retention and renal failure, as well as dysuria due to detrusor relaxation. If a man cannot discharge urine suddenly, and the bladder is full and painful, he may have acute urinary retention and need emergency treatment, and he should go to the emergency room to discharge the urine through a catheter. In short, you must urinate as soon as you have it, and don’t hold it back. The situation of "big living people letting urine suffocate" is not without precedent, it is worthy of vigilance!
Quit smoking, alcohol and spicy diet, the prostate is afraid of spicy foods. Spicy foods are not the direct cause of prostate disease. However, foods such as tobacco, alcohol, peppers have a strong stimulating effect on the prostate and urethra, which can cause swelling and discomfort in the perineum, and can also cause prostate and Congestion and edema of the bladder neck reduce the resistance of the prostate. Doctors have observed that the incidence of prostatitis, benign prostatic hyperplasia and prostate cancer among alcoholics and smokers is higher than that of those who are not close to alcohol and tobacco. Therefore, even in the cold winter, try to avoid eating spicy food and drinking a lot of alcohol to "warm up", and try not to smoke.
