马来西亚健康饮食餐盘,让你轻松吃出健康!


马来西亚健康饮食餐盘,让你轻松吃出健康! By Island Hospital | May 29, 2024 12:00:00 PM Medical Reviewer: Clinical Dietitian, Island Hospital 谈及营养均衡的饮食,多数人可能会想:“只要遵循食物金字塔的原则进食就可以了!” 然而,食物金字塔仅告诉我们均衡饮食的基本准则,它并没有阐明各种食物类别在每一餐中的比例。 这时,名为 “马来西亚健康饮食餐盘” 的饮食指南便派上用场啦! 在世界营养日来临之际,让我们一起深入了解这个饮食指南,看看如何将其融入我们的日常饮食当中吧! 什么是马来西亚健康饮食餐盘? 来源: 马来西亚卫生部 马来西亚健康饮食餐盘是马来西亚卫生部发布的饮食指南。它以食物金字塔的饮食准则为基础,展示了一餐内应食用的各种食物类别的比例。 有了这个饮食指南,你可以轻松养成健康的饮食习惯,从而满足你日常的营养需求,助你保持最佳的健康状态。 如何按照马来西亚健康饮食餐盘规划你的饮食 想按照马来西亚健康饮食餐盘规划你的饮食吗?很简单,你只需遵循“四分之一、四分之一、一半"(Suku, Suku, Separuh)的原则。 首先,想象你有一个盘子。然后,把盘子分为三个部分:盘子的一半装上蔬菜和水果,盘子的四分之一装上碳水化合物,剩下的四分之一则装上蛋白质。 蔬果 蔬菜和水果占据了马来西亚健康饮食餐的一半空间。 这是因为蔬果拥有丰富的营养价值。它们富含维生素、抗氧化剂、矿物质和纤维,对维持人体健康起到关键作用。 例如,摄取足够的蔬果有利于提高免疫力、促进消化、降低肥胖风险,以及减少罹患慢性病的风险,其中包括糖尿病、心脏病和癌症 [1]。 如果想获取多样化的营养,那就在饮食中包含不同颜色的蔬果吧! 蔬果基本上可被归纳为五种主要颜色:红色、橙色或黄色、绿色、蓝色或紫色、白色或棕色。不同的颜色分别代表不同的营养成分。 红辣椒和西瓜等红色蔬果是鞣花酸和茄红素的优质来源,有助于降低患癌风险。胡萝卜和芒果等橙色或黄色蔬果则含有丰富的类胡萝卜素,对眼部健康至关重要 [2]。 另外,芥菜和菠菜等绿叶蔬菜富含维生素K,对骨骼健康大有裨益。蓝莓和茄子等蓝色或紫色蔬果则拥有丰富的花青素,有益于大脑健康和心血管健康 [2]。最后,荔枝和蘑菇等白色或棕色蔬果富含植物营养素,这些营养素具有抗肿瘤和抗炎特性。 可是,你该如何在每一餐摄取足够的蔬果呢? 首先,你可以饮用由你最爱的蔬果制成的果昔...

了解阴道炎,关注阴道健康


了解阴道炎,关注阴道健康 By Island Hospital | May 13, 2024 12:00:00 PM 阴道炎是很多女性难以启齿的妇科疾病之一。 研究表明,不少患有阴道炎的女性为此而感到焦虑和羞耻。其中,这种心理状态在阴道炎反复发作的女性群体中尤为严重。 然而,患上阴道炎并不可耻。今天,让我们通过这篇文章,一起来全面了解阴道炎这个常见的妇科疾病吧! 简单了解阴道分泌物 深入了解阴道炎之前,我们得先了解阴道分泌物,因为这是诊断阴道炎的重要依据。 阴道分泌物也被称为“白带”,主要由阴道皮肤细胞、寄生在阴道内的各种细菌以及子宫等分泌的液体组成。这些分泌物不仅有抗菌的功效,同时也起着润滑阴道的作用。 正常的阴道分泌物一般呈白色或透明,不会有强烈或难闻的气味。根据月经周期和荷尔蒙变化等因素,阴道分泌物的粘稠度和分泌量也有所不同。怀孕期间、进行性活动时或服用口服避孕药后,阴道可能会产生较多的分泌物。 什么是阴道炎? 顾名思义,阴道炎是发生在阴道的炎症。 患上阴道炎的原因一般包括: 不当的个人卫生习惯:不常或过度清洁阴道、排尿或排便后习惯由后往前擦拭 阴道长期处于潮湿的环境中 阴道受到刺激或产生过敏反应 阴道或盆腔组织损伤 阴道菌群失调 阴道感染了细菌、真菌等致病微生物 雌激素水平下降 阴道炎的种类 阴道炎可分为非感染性和感染性两大类。 非感染性阴道炎多由阴道受到刺激、损伤或产生过敏反应所致;感染性阴道炎则由细菌、原虫、病毒、真菌等致病微生物引起。 感染性阴道炎的类型繁多。其中,细菌性阴道炎、念珠菌性阴道炎及滴虫性阴道炎属于常见的感染性阴道炎。 阴道炎的症状 普遍上,阴道炎的症状包括: 阴道分泌物的气味、颜色或分泌量出现变化 阴道红肿、疼痛或瘙痒 性交和排尿时感到疼痛 阴道轻微出血 值得注意的是,不同类型的感染性阴道炎会出现不同的症状,详见下表: 阴道炎种类症状 细菌性阴道炎 阴道不会感到瘙痒。 阴道分泌物呈泡沫状;灰白色。 阴道分泌物带有腥味。 念珠菌性阴道炎 阴道瘙痒。...

手足口症来袭,你准备好了吗?


手足口症来袭,你准备好了吗? By Island Hospital | Apr 19, 2024 12:00:00 PM 手足口症是全球常见的传染病之一。可是,你了解这个疾病吗? 只有小孩才会感染手足口症吗?这个疾病的症状只会出现在手、脚和口腔吗?曾经感染手足口症的人是否就终生免疫了呢?… 若你对上述问题仍有些许疑惑,这篇文章将让你更了解手足口症。一起来看看吧! 什么是手足口症? 手足口症 (Hand, Foot and Mouth Disease, HFMD) 又名发疹性水疱性口腔炎。由于这个疾病主要导致手、脚、口腔等部位出现疱疹,故俗称为“手足口症”或“手足口病”。 这个疾病是由多种肠道病毒引起的传染病。其中,肠道病毒71型 (Enterovirus 71, EV71) 和柯萨奇病毒A16型 (Coxsackievirus A16, Cox A16) 是最常见的病原体。 值得注意的是,手足口症虽多发生于5岁以下的儿童,但各年龄层都有感染此疾病的风险。不过,成人的症状一般比儿童来得轻,故容易被忽视。 手足口症的症状 手足口症的潜伏期通常是3 至 6 天。过了潜伏期,手足口症患者将出现以下症状: 轻度症状中度症状重度症状 发烧 (37.2°C以上) 咽喉疼痛 全身不适 舌头、牙龈、脸颊内侧、手掌、脚掌、臀部或生殖器出现小水疱或皮疹,伴有疼痛感 食欲不振...

腰痛怎么办?深入解析腰痛原因与解决方法!


腰痛怎么办?深入解析腰痛原因与解决方法! By Island Hospital | Apr 8, 2024 3:00:00 PM 腰痛是常见的健康问题,任何人都可能受其影响。 2018年的数据显示,70%至85%的人在一生中至少会经历一次腰痛。 然而,持续的腰痛不仅影响生活质量,严重时甚至会导致行动不便,危害身心健康。 现在,让我们深入了解腰痛这一现象,看看腰痛时该怎么办吧! 什么是腰痛? 腰痛是指肋骨下方和臀部上方的身体部位疼痛,常发生于30岁至50岁的人群。 腰痛可分为: 特异性腰痛 (specific lower back pain):因脊柱相关疾病或结构性问题而造成的腰部疼痛,或是从身体其他部位通过腰部传送来的疼痛。 非特异性腰痛 (non-specific lower back pain):无法确定疼痛的具体病因或结构性原因的腰部疼痛,约90%的病例属于此例,如:腰部扭伤(俗称 “闪到腰”)等。 腰痛的痛感共有3种: 急性(痛感持续4周或更少) 亚急性(痛感持续4至12周) 慢性(痛感持续超过12周) 腰痛的原因 想知道腰痛时该怎么办,就得先知道造成腰痛的原因,才能对症下药。 以下是一些导致腰痛的常见原因: 退行性疾病:椎间盘相关疾病、骨关节炎、骨质疏松症等。 创伤性原因:韧带破裂或扭伤、肌肉痉挛或拉伤、背部创伤等。 结构性异常:椎间盘凸出或椎间盘脱出、脊椎滑脱、坐骨神经痛等。 炎症性疾病:脊柱关节炎等。 其他原因:腰部肌肉劳损、举重物的姿势不当、长期久坐、姿势不良等。 其中,退行性疾病是指随着人体老化、身体机能逐渐衰退而引起的疾病。 腰痛的诊断方式 造成腰痛的原因相当多样。 因此,医生一般会让你进行X 光检查、计算机断层扫描(CT...

想降低胆固醇?那就远离这些食物吧!


想降低胆固醇?那就远离这些食物吧! By Island Hospital | Mar 25, 2024 11:00:00 AM 胆固醇是血液中的一种脂质 (lipid),在人体的各种功能中扮演重要的角色。然而,当血液中含有过量的胆固醇时,这将妨碍血液的流通,从而引发一系列的健康问题。 每年,全球至少有440万人因高胆固醇相关疾病而丧生。 如果你的胆固醇水平过高,别担心!健康的饮食习惯是有助于降低胆固醇的。 在这个世界卫生日,让我们一起来关注心血管健康,看看胆固醇高的人究竟不能吃什么吧! 什么是胆固醇? 进入正题之前,我们先来简单了解胆固醇。 胆固醇是形成人体细胞膜的必要成分之一,同时也是合成胆汁酸、维生素D以及甾体激素的原料。 胆固醇共有两种——低密度脂蛋白(LDL,全称 low-density lipoprotein,俗称“坏胆固醇”)和高密度脂蛋白(HDL,全称 high-density lipoprotein,俗称 “好胆固醇”)。 其中,LDL是导致各种健康问题的元凶。 若血管内有过多的LDL,它们将在血管中形成脂肪沉积。长久以往,这些沉积物可能会破裂并形成凝块。这将阻断血流,进而引发心脏病、中风等其他疾病。 因此, 我们常说的 “胆固醇高” 通常是指LDL水平过高;“降低胆固醇” 一般上是指要降低LDL水平。 另一方面,HDL则负责将各种形式的胆固醇和脂肪沉积带给肝脏处理,再排出体外。这样,我们的血液就得以在血管中畅通无阻,从而有效降低罹患心血管疾病的风险。 胆固醇高不能吃什么? 提高LDL(坏胆固醇)水平、降低HDL(好胆固醇)水平的食品是胆固醇水平过高的人应该少吃,甚至是不能吃的,具体详情如下: 高反式脂肪的食物 反式脂肪 (trans fat) 是人造的食用脂肪,主要存在于: 1. 精炼植物油玉米油 (0.25 g trans fat/100...

骨痛热症:完整指南


骨痛热症:完整指南 By Island Hospital | Mar 22, 2024 2:00:00 PM 骨痛热症,也称为登革热 (dengue fever) 和断骨热 (break-bone fever),主要通过蚊子传播,是全球最普遍的蚊媒疾病之一。 20多年以来,世界各地的骨痛热症病例逐年增加。 根据世界卫生组织 (WHO) 的报告,骨痛热症的全球发病率由2000年的约50万例增至约420万例(2022年),每年更是平均夺走2万条人命! 可见,骨痛热症的危害不容忽视。一起来深入了解这个疾病吧! 什么是骨痛热症? 骨痛热症是由骨痛热症病毒 (dengue virus) 引起的病毒性热病 (viral fever)。该病毒共有四个变种——DENV-1、DENV-2、DENV-3 和 DENV-4。 染上某个病毒变种后,人们将对该变种终身免疫。然而,若不幸接触到其他病毒变种,人们有机会再次感染骨痛热症,症状也将比之前更严重。 骨痛热症常见于热带与亚热带气候的地区,因为这些地区的气候炎热潮湿,为蚊子提供了生存、繁殖和传播病毒所需的理想条件。 骨痛热症的传播途径 骨痛热症主要通过带有骨痛热症病毒的雌性黑斑蚊(或称伊蚊,Aedes mosquito)传染给人类。与一般蚊子不同,黑斑蚊的身上及脚上拥有白色环纹,相当有辨识度。 当受病毒感染的蚊子叮咬人类后,该病毒将进入人体。接着,人们将在未来的3至14天(平均4至7天)内出现骨痛热症的症状。 骨痛热症的症状 一般上,大部分感染骨痛热症的人仅出现轻微症状,有时甚至没有任何症状。 轻微症状: 突发的持续性高烧 (39℃ 或以上) 皮疹(皮肤出现红色斑点) 骨骼、肌肉、关节、眼球后方以及头部剧痛 腺体肿大...
