Prevention Strategy




Gout is a type of joint disease that is linked to the buildup of uric acid crystals in the fluids and tissues inside the body. It can be caused by the kidneys not being able to excrete uric acid from the body or from an overproduction of uric acid in the body. It is generally related to a poor diet, alcohol consumption, and the taking of certain medications, yet there are hereditary forms of the disease as well. There are about 3 million Americans who currently live with gout or gouty arthritis.
When a person suffers from acute gout, they may have a specific joint that becomes hot, swollen and red. The joint pain Is usually unilateral, meaning it doesn't affect the same joint on both sides of the body.
Most people with acute gout suffer from excruciating pain in the affected joint that can be easily managed by taking some type of NSAID drug (nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug) such as ibuprofen (marketed as Motrin or Advil) or naproxen sodium (marketed as Naprosyn or Aleve). Changes in diet and preventative medications can prevent an acute flare-up of gout but when a flare-up occurs, medications are generally necessary.
If acute gout is left untreated and the individual has repetitive instances of gout, this can cause a degenerative type of gout in the joints, which is also referred to as chronic gout or gouty arthritis. The goal of treatment in those suffering from gouty arthritis is to treat the pain of flare-ups and to keep the uric acid levels down as much as possible.



How Does Nutrition Help In Gout
Nutrition is an important aspect of everyday life. It helps the body get in that energy it needs to function. The role of nutrition therapy in gout is to identify the amounts of nutrients required to manage symptoms and the right food choices to support the body's repair system.
Nutrition helps by:
• preventing the pain of acute flares
• blocking the inflammatory response
• preventing acute gout attacks to avoid permanent damage to the joints
• improving renal activity and avoiding the formation of kidney stones
• reducing fatigue and energizing the body
