”I heard that XX can cure diabetes” “I heard that who can cure high blood pressure”… In life, many people have heard similar rumors. In fact, in clinical practice, there are many diseases that can only be relieved by drugs or other means to achieve the purpose of relieving symptoms and delaying the development of the disease, and cannot be completely cured. Many patients “returned to the doctor in a panic”, and were eventually defrauded of money and harmed their bodies.
Some experts have pointed out that the following 8 diseases cannot be cured at all.
Diabetes is a common chronic metabolic disease. Yang Chuan, director of the Department of Diabetes at Sun Yat-sen Hospital of Sun Yat-sen University, said in an interview with Health Times that type 2 diabetes cannot be cured, and it is mainly controlled through long-term regulation of drugs. The diabetes treatment device on the market is only an adjuvant treatment method with drugs, and cannot cure diabetes. At the same time, the current treatment methods for diabetes are mainly insulin injections and oral drugs. Other various treatment methods cannot fundamentally control blood sugar. Blind withdrawal of drugs can easily cause danger.
Although diabetes cannot be completely cured, diabetes is completely controllable. As long as the patient controls various metabolic indicators well, the complications of diabetes can be effectively prevented to a large extent, so that the patient can obtain a life expectancy close to that of a healthy person.
2. Rheumatic diseases
Rheumatic immune disease is a chronic disease related to the autoimmune system. Many elderly people suffer from it all year round, and severe cases can lead to joint deformation and disability. So many people went to seek medical treatment, hoping to be completely cured as soon as possible.
The chief physician of the Department of Rheumatology and Immunology, Tangdu Hospital of Air Force Military Medical University reminded in an interview with Health Times that if there is joint and muscle pain, low back pain and stiffness, abnormal serology in blood tests, and abnormal immunological tests, it may indicate that suffering from rheumatism disease. And most rheumatic diseases are chronic progressive diseases and cannot be cured, but most rheumatic diseases can be controlled, just like controlling chronic diseases such as hypertension.
Hypertension has now become one of the chronic diseases that plague most people, and many people need long-term medication. Therefore, a complete “radical cure” of high blood pressure is the wish of many patients.
Professor Zhang Yuqing, Department of Cardiology, Fuwai Hospital, Chinese Academy of Medical Sciences, emphasized in an interview with Health Times that high blood pressure cannot be cured at present. The main purpose of clinical treatment of hypertension is to promote blood pressure to reach the target. For patients, this means taking antihypertensive drugs for life. It is necessary to remind patients that they must use antihypertensive drugs under the guidance of doctors, and do not listen to blind faith. itself.
Professor Zhang Yuqing reminded that while drug treatment, patients can also assist in reducing blood pressure through life adjustment. Including salt restriction, weight control, restriction of alcohol consumption, physical exercise and so on. The second is measures to control other cardiovascular risk factors, including smoking cessation, limiting dietary intake of total fat, saturated fatty acids and cholesterol to control serum cholesterol.
Asthma is also a disease that afflicts many people. In particular, some children have asthma at a very young age, and it has continued, so it has become a patient’s dream to cure it. I often see advertisements claiming that it can cure asthma and is a remedies and secret recipe for asthma, but such advertisements are basically unbelievable.
Professor Huang Mao, director of the Department of Respiratory Medicine of Jiangsu Provincial People’s Hospital, reminded in an article published in Health Times that asthma cannot be “cured radically”. At present, the medical profession can only effectively control asthma, but not completely cure it. An ad is considered exaggeration if it claims that its medicine can cure asthma. Professor Huang Mao introduced that although asthma cannot be cured, 80% of asthma patients can achieve good control through standardized treatment, and some patients can even completely get rid of drugs after 2 to 3 years of standardized treatment and live and work normally.
Alzheimer’s disease is a neurodegenerative disease with insidious onset and progressive development. It is clinically characterized by memory impairment, mobility impairment, and personality changes. The clinical onset of Alzheimer’s disease is irreversible, and there is currently no good drug to control the progression of the disease. At present, the approved Alzheimer’s disease drugs can only improve the symptoms and cannot cure the disease.
Han Ying, chief physician of the Department of Neurology, Xuanwu Hospital of Capital Medical University, introduced in a Baijiahao article that whether Alzheimer’s disease can be cured or not is a global problem. Scientists around the world are still conducting research in the field of Alzheimer’s disease. Although there is no complete cure, it can be slowed down by delaying treatment and reducing the progression of the disease.
Children have myopia, many parents hope that there is some way to help children get rid of myopia and cure myopia. In fact, there is currently no way to “cure” myopia.
Many people ask, isn’t myopia surgery a cure for myopia? Wei Wenbin, vice president of Beijing Tongren Hospital and director of the Department of Ophthalmology, said in the program “National Open University, Famous Teachers’ Good Lessons”, “So far, there is no drug or surgery that can cure myopia. The surgery for myopia is only for the purpose of Take off your glasses for everyone, but the state of myopia will never change. Especially high myopia and super high myopia cause changes in our eyeballs.”
Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) can be seen from the name. One is a chronic disease; A series of lung diseases have come, so it generally occurs in patients who smoke for a long time or some long-term dust inhalation damage. Many COPD patients hope to find a way to completely cure COPD.
Wang Ruiying, deputy chief physician of the Respiratory Department of Shanxi University Hospital, reminded in the Health Times article that COPD cannot be cured, but it can be prevented and cured. Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease is a chronic airway inflammatory disease characterized by incompletely reversible airflow limitation, which is progressive and requires long-term maintenance therapy. Long-term drug therapy can prevent and control symptoms, reduce the frequency and severity of exacerbations, and improve exercise tolerance and quality of life.
Many psoriasis patients have misunderstandings about the basic knowledge of psoriasis, and some hope to pursue a cure once and for all, and listen to various remedies and secret recipes.
Gu Jun, director of the Department of Dermatology at Shanghai Changhai Hospital, introduced in an interview with Health Times that psoriasis is a chronic relapsing disease, and there is currently no cure. or avoid its recurrence. Blindly believing in ancestral secret recipes or so-called “radical cure” medicines not only delays treatment, but some “secret recipes” even endanger life.
