FAQ's For Gout

   

The main cause of gout is the sedimentation of excess urate crsytals which cause pain and swelling of the joints. This can happen due to a meat-rich diet, obesity, family history, etc.

Foods like meat, seafood, alcoholic beverages like beer, and juices sweetened by fructose can cause gout.

It is recommended to visit a doctor immdeiately. However in the sudden event of a gout attack, the patient should lie down, ice the affected area and apply corticosteroids. Staying hydrated and using any OTC pain reliever can temporarily alleviate pain.

Gout lasts only 3 days with treatment. But it can get worse and take upto 14 days to heal if left untreated.

It is always recommended to drink 8 glasses of water per day, however this golden rule is a must when experiencing gout as it flushes out excess uric acid from the body. Herbal supplemnets work best in tandem with prescribed medication.

 
Gout is a complex form of arthritis wherein a patient experiences sudden, intense pain in the joint most commonly at the base of the big toe. Gout attacks can happen unexpectedly and cause a burning feeling. The affected area is hot, swollen and very tender. Other gout symptoms include:
Intense joint pain
Inflammation
Redness
Limited range of motion
Prolonged feeling of discomfort

Gout is caused by excess urate crystals which sediment at the joints of the toe. Purines, commonly found in meat, seafood, alcohol and fructose-sweetened drinks breakdown in the kidneys to form uric acid. When uric acid is in excess in the body, it can form sharp, needle-like urate crystals in a joint or the areas surrounding it. Gout causes and risk factors include:
Meat-rich diet
Obesity
Family history of gout
Age and gender
Recent surgery
Certain types of medication

Gout treatment first starts with diagnosis. This can be done by the following means:
Blood test
Ultrasound
X-Ray
Joint fluid test
Dual Energy CT-scan

Gout medication in the form of NSAIDs (Nonsteroidal Anti-Inflammatory Drugs), corticosteroids, and colchicine are the most effective way to combat recurring attacks of pain. Natural gout remedies include cherry extract, magnesium, ginger, celery or celery seeds, dandelion, hibiscus, and hot and cold compress. HerbsDaily has a wide selection of supplements effective in treating gout.
