Whenever faced with a health condition, it is vital to understand how it works, the effects it has on the body and how changing habits and adopting new ones can improve the quality of life. Gout is a type of rheumatism or arthritis (in fact, the most painful arthritic conditions) that occurs when the crystals from the excess uric acid deposit in a joint or in a soft tissue, such as cartilage causing inflammation and pain in that particular area. This may happen either when the body makes too much uric acid, the diet contains too many foods that increase the amount of uric acid or the body cannot eliminate it properly through urine.
High levels of uric acid can also indicate an improper kidney function. The body produces uric acid on its own and it also breaks down purines from foods into uric acid. When the kidneys are unable to flush out every trace of uric acid, what's left of it travels through the bloodstream and ends up in the joint or cartilages.
This slowly becomes a vicious cycle. It's like excess calories that get stored as fat, causing all sorts of health issues not only to the particular area uric acid chooses to settle in. Gout mainly affects the big toe but it can also appear in knees, ankles, elbows, hands, wrists.
What's more, gout has a genetic component. However, proper diet can prevent it from ever manifesting. Apart from its preventative action, diet can also be a contributing factor to the evolution of gout and it may determine the next gout attack. And gout attacks get more frequent once the first one has taken place. The duration of a gout flare is about 6-10 days, this is why an anti-inflammatory gout-friendly diet is required for 2 weeks from the beginning of the attack.
An imbalanced diet is responsible, to some extent, for producing too much uric acid since there are foods and drinks rich in purines or that trigger a response and raise the uric acid levels. One of the results of breaking down purines, chemical substances found in some foods, is uric acid. A diet rich in foods with high amounts of purines may trigger an inflammatory response and gout starts acting up. There will be pain and swelling, not to mention the additional health conditions associated with gout. Furthermore, insulin resistance has also been linked to exacerbating gout symptoms.
Gout is often associated with obesity, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, diabetes, heart and kidney disease. These conditions should be addressed as well through either medication or diet chang
