Gout: improving lifestyle and preventing recurrence

Gout is an inflammatory arthritis that causes gout when crystals formed by excessive levels of uric acid in the blood deposit in the joints and cause inflammation.

Purin is the main element in the production of uric acid. When there is a problem with metabolism that causes the body to produce too much prion, or when the puer discharge is reduced, uric acid is too high. However, about 95% of people with high uric acid will not develop symptoms and cause any health problems. If you have a genetic problem and you have to take long-term medication to control uric acid, gout is actually a disease that can prevent and avoid recurrence by changing your lifestyle and diet. However, if you do not receive treatment and maintain self-discipline, gout will cause cartilage damage and accelerate joint deterioration.

The cause of gout can be divided into primary and secondary. Primary gout is more and the age is not limited. The symptoms of gout are mainly pain, swelling, heat and red, which are more common in the thumb of the foot. Gout symptoms often come very suddenly rather than step by step. Although metastases may also occur, common recurrences occur in the same area as the first disease. The patient already knows that he has a gout problem, but he is still unwilling to change his eating habits, which will lead to a worsening of the condition.

Joint diseases such as rheumatoid arthritis and degenerative arthritis may also cause joint pain, but if you find four symptoms of pain, swelling, heat, and red, you may definitely have gout. However, it is also necessary to pass a blood test to check whether the uric acid content in the patient’s blood is too high. If the blood test cannot be diagnosed, the crystal that causes joint pain should be taken for testing. Some people suffer from gout if the uric acid content exceeds a little. Some people have a lot of symptoms but nothing, which is related to personal physique. Taking drugs and lifestyle

When the patient is exposed to acute pain caused by gout, in addition to oral medications for pain relief, swelling and anti-inflammatory, there must be adequate rest. The patient can also apply ice to the affected area to help relieve symptoms. Patients with acute pain should not take uric acid lowering medications because it exacerbates pain. Reducing uric acid is used to reduce uric acid rather than to treat pain. This medicine must be taken after the pain has been resolved.

When acute pain is controlled, gout treatment is actually very simple. Patients must adjust their lifestyle and diet on their own, rather than relying on a doctor to prescribe drugs. If you want to reduce uric acid by drugs, you must take it for a long time, which may cause side effects. It is said that the disease is from the mouth, and it is especially important to avoid it. During the pain, you must strictly control your mouth. Need to pay attention to the following matters:

Adhere to regular movements. This is more effective in helping patients lose weight while controlling the uric acid index. If the uric acid is too high, if you can exercise regularly, even a normal diet can prevent gout from happening again.

Drink plenty of water as appropriate. Water can dilute blood and uric acid. When the body’s moisture content is too small, even if the uric acid value is not high, crystals may be produced, which may lead to gout.

Eat more vegetables and fruits. Vitamin C can help reduce uric acid. Vitamin C and various healthy nutrients from fruits and vegetables are the best way to reduce uric acid.

Reduce the intake of a single carbohydrate. Compound carbohydrates are more suitable. Ingestion of excessive white bread, rice, cakes, candy, saccharin, sweeteners and other foods can lead to obesity, indirectly causing excessive uric acid.

Reduce consumption of seafood, red meat and internal organs. Seafood such as clams, clams and other shellfish, shrimp, sardines and squid; animal internal organs such as liver and kidney; red meat such as high protein food mutton, beef, duck and so on. If your physical condition permits, you can eat some, don’t eat too much because of your mouth.

Be careful with beans and soy products. These foods contain high levels of protein, so it is best not to eat them, or to eat less carefully.

Avoid drinking alcohol. All alcoholic drinks are not suitable for drinking and completely avoid drinking beer. Drinks such as wine can be tasted a bit, but the weight must be controlled.

Gout patients should learn to control their diet from their life experiences, and understand what foods can be eaten and what foods should be eaten or not. The limits of your own body are only clear to you.
