is a kind of arthritis caused by too much uric acid in
the joints. For effective gout control, you must address
Acute gouty arthritis is an attack of a metabolic
disease marked by uric acid deposits in the joints. The
disorder causes painful arthritis, especially in the
joints of the feet and legs.
There are many gout control protocols. For natural gout
control, the Arthritis Strategy Pack is powerful and
effective. Buffer pH balances the internal environment
to address gout at its root while Arthritin works on
pain and inflammation control.
Gout has four stages:
1) asymptomatic (without symptoms)
In acute (the second stage) gouty arthritis, symptoms
develop suddenly and usually involve only one or a few
joints. The pain frequently starts during the night and
is often described as throbbing, crushing, or
excruciating. The joint appears infected with signs of
warmth, redness, and tenderness.
The gout attacks on joints may subside in several days,
but may recur at irregular intervals. Subsequent gout
attacks usually have a longer duration. Some people may
progress to chronic gouty arthritis, while others may
have no further attacks.
Who can have a gout attack?
There is a strong
gout diet connection.
In fact, diet is on the top of the
causes list. If
you eat a lot of foods that are rich in purines, you may
have a gout attack. Some of these foods are salmon,
sardines, liver and herring. You may have a gout attack
if you are overweight, drink alcohol or have high
cholesterol. Men tend to have gout attacks more often
than women do. Some medicines may cause gout attacks,
such as certain diuretics (water pills), niacin (a
B-complex vitamin), aspirin (taken in low doses),
cyclosporine and some drugs used to treat cancer. The
risk for gout attacks is greater in men, postmenopausal
women, and people who drink alcohol.
What is a gout attack like?
It may be sudden. It usually starts at night, often in
the big toe or foot. The joint becomes red, feels hot
and hurts. The joint hurts more when you touch it. Other
joints may also be affected. Gout control is best
addressed before a gout attack occurs.
What should I do if I have a gout attack?
The sooner you get treatment, the sooner the pain will
go away. Your doctor may prescribe medicine to stop the
joint swelling and pain. You should rest in bed. Putting
an ice pack and then a hot pad on the joint may ease the
pain. Keeping the weight of clothes or bed covers off
the joint may also help. With treatment, your gout
attack should go away in a few days. You may or not have
another gout attack.
What if I don't get treatment?
If you don't get treatment, a gout attack can last for
days or even weeks. If you keep having more gout
attacks, more joints will be affected, and the gout
attacks will last longer. If you have gout attacks for
many years, you may develop tophi (pronounced toe-fee).
These are soft tissue swellings caused by uric acid
crystals. Tophi usually form on the toes, fingers, hands
and elbows. You may also get kidney diseases or kidney
stones. Over time, the bone around a joint may be
destroyed. The need to find effective gout control prior
to bone damage is critical.
What can I do to avoid gout attacks?
and uric acid go hand in hand.
Your doctor may prescribe medicines for
gout control. These medicines wash the uric acid from
your joints, reduce the swelling or keep uric acid from
