Drinking beer in summer can cause seven diseases
In summer, many people like to drink beer to reduce fire and relieve summer heat. Among alcoholic beverages, beer has the least alcohol content. The alcohol content of a liter of beer is equivalent to that of more than one or two Baijiu, so many people regard beer as a summer drink.
However, if you drink too much without restraint, the alcohol accumulated in the body will damage liver function, increase the burden on the kidney, and adipocyte infiltration will also appear in myocardial tissue, weakening myocardial function and causing tachycardia; In addition, excessive fluid increases the amount of blood circulation and increases the burden on the heart, resulting in cardiac hypertrophy and ventricular volume expansion, forming a "beer heart". In the long run, it can cause heart failure, arrhythmia, etc.
Drinking ice cold beer is more harmful. The temperature of ice cold beer is 20-30 ℃ lower than that of human body. Drinking a large amount of ice cold beer will rapidly reduce the temperature of gastrointestinal tract and blood flow, resulting in physiological dysfunction and affecting digestive function. In serious cases, it will even cause life-threatening emergencies such as spastic abdominal pain, diarrhea and acute pancreatitis.
Pay attention to disease prevention when drinking beer
1. Alcoholic liver
It is rich in nutrition and produces a lot of calories. Most of the nutrients contained can be absorbed by the human body. At the same time, most of the alcohol is metabolized through the liver. Long term alcohol damage will lead to alcoholic liver, which may then turn into liver cirrhosis and liver cancer, greatly shortening the life span.
Many men also consume a lot of fat when drinking beer, and they lack necessary exercise, so fatty liver is easy to occur. Those who are light may have no symptoms, but some people have symptoms similar to hepatitis, such as abdominal distension, general fatigue, loss of appetite, diarrhea, nausea, vomiting, abdominal pain, weight loss, and some patients have fever.
2. Aggravate stomach disease
Drinking beer in patients with chronic gastritis can inhibit or reduce the synthesis of prostaglandin E in gastric mucosa, cause damage to gastric mucosa, and cause abdominal distension, stomach burning, belching, anorexia, etc. The heart bears carbon dioxide. If you drink too much, the pressure of carbon dioxide in the stomach will increase, and there is a risk of inducing ulcer perforation.
3. Heart patients are prone to induce heart failure
Beer contains a lot of water, which will increase the burden on the heart after drinking. If you often drink a lot of beer, the heart will be continuously damaged by alcohol, which will cause cardiac hypertrophy and induce heart failure. People who have heart failure symptoms should not drink beer.
Drinking a lot of beer is easy to damage the gastric mucosa, resulting in gastritis and peptic ulcer, epigastric discomfort, loss of appetite, abdominal distension, acid reflux and other symptoms.
Cold beer can make the temperature of gastrointestinal tract suddenly drop, and the capillaries suddenly shrink, thus inducing gastroenteritis, spastic abdominal pain and diarrhea.
The earliest manifestations of this patient are mainly nausea and vomiting; Then there will be diarrhea, ranging from 3-5 times to dozens of times a day. At this time, most people know that it is "eating bad stomach". If they do not see a doctor in time, it is easy to cause water and electrolyte disorders, and some serious people will cause serious dehydration and even shock.
5. Prone to hypoglycemia
Although the alcohol content in beer is low, the calories produced by alcohol will interfere with patients' normal dietary control. When patients with diabetes take sulfonylurea hypoglycemic drugs or inject insulin, patients who drink too much beer may have hypoglycemic reaction.
6. Acute pancreatitis
Drinking a lot of beer in summer will also make the pancreas secrete vigorously, which is very easy to lead to acute pancreatitis. Dr. Ke said that many people themselves suffer from cholelithiasis. After overeating, especially drinking a lot of beer, they also suffer from acute pancreatitis. The mortality rate of acute pancreatitis is very high. Once it occurs, the mortality rate is as high as 30% - 50%.
The most typical manifestation of such people is sharp pain in the upper abdomen, and some will be accompanied by nausea, vomiting, abdominal distension, diarrhea, fever and other symptoms. This situation is troublesome. You should go to the hospital in time and do not delay the treatment time.
7. Kidney stone
"In order to relieve the summer heat, many people drink beer instead of water, which is extremely unscientific." Experts say that people who often drink beer are prone to stones because of the high concentration of uric acid due to the large amount of water discharged.
This is because the wort of brewing beer contains a lot of water. After drinking, calcium, oxalic acid, Ukrainian nucleotides and purine nucleotides will interact, which can more than double the amount of uric acid in the human body and easily promote the formation of kidney stones.
Kidney stones may exist for a long time without symptoms, especially large stones. The pain caused by kidney stones can be divided into dull pain and colic. Some patients will have a history of intermittent pain. The location of renal colic is different from other gastrointestinal diseases. The pain is often located in the waist and abdomen, most of which are paroxysmal and can also be continuous pain. Another main symptom is hematuria, which is often accompanied by pain, and can be aggravated after physical activity.
