Gout is a type of arthritis that occurs when uric acid crystals accumulate in the joints. Gout usually affects the large joint of the big toe but can also affect other joints, including the knee, ankle, foot, hand, wrist and elbow. The shoulders, hips or spine can also be affected during the later stages of gout. The symptoms of gout usually appear suddenly, and can last anywhere from a few hours to several days.
Most doctors will use prescription medicines as the treatment for gout. A medicine called colchicine will help reduce inflammation, swelling and pain caused by sudden gout attacks. The medicine works by decreasing the uric acid crystals built up in the joint. However, the medicine does not reduce the levels of uric acid in the blood stream. Most often the pain usually goes away in about twelve hours of starting the treatment for gout, and is completely relieved by 48 hours. Taking the medicines colchicine, or allopurinol, usually prevents future attacks.
What is Gout? Gout is the result of too much uric acid that builds up in the body over a period of time.
The uric acid forms very sharp crystals that cluster around the joints causing the pain, inflammation
and tenderness associated with gout. Since gout is caused by the formation of uric acid crystals
that the body does not get rid of you need to know about some factors that might cause gout.
Treating gout can be easy if the symptoms, genetic history, patients medical history are checked by the physician on time. If a person suffered two or more arthritis attacks, experiences severe joint stiffness in any one area like knee or toe, it could be a symptom of gout.
The cause of gout may be metabolic, renal, or both. Metabolic gout is innate, and several genetic factors have the potential to produce the condition. In this form of gout, the body produces more uric acid than can be cleared by the kidneys into the urine. Renal gout is caused by one of many possible renal dysfunctions. In this form of gout, the body may produce normal levels of uric acid, but the action of the kidneys are insufficient to clear the compound from the blood.
Some people want a natural treatment for gout, or any other medical problem. For centuries, plant extracts and natural herbs have been used to treat gout in Europe and Asia. Clinical research proved that those plant extract do have natural compounds that reduce uric acids in the blood and expel it from the body. Those scientific studies lead to the creation of Goutezol.
