What Is Gout?
According to the National Arthritis Data Workgroup, an estimated 6 million people in the United States report having experienced gout at some point in their lives. In fact, gout is the most common form of inflammatory arthritis in men over the age of 40.
Gout is a painful form of arthritis that is caused by high uric acid levels in your blood (hyperuricemia). Gout attacks occur when excess uric acid forms crystals, causing inflammation in your joints that leads to swelling and pain. As your uric acid level rises, so does the potential for gout and gout flares. Over time, gout attacks can become more severe, last longer, and occur more often. Decreasing your uric acid to the recommended level (less than 6 mg/dL) can reduce the risk of gout attacks over the long term.
What Causes Gout? High Uric Acid Gout Symptoms in Big Toe Painful attacks may be the symptom most associated with gout, but you shouldn't let them prevent you from addressing its underlying cause. Gout is caused by a buildup of uric acid in your blood (hyperuricemia). As your uric acid level rises, so does the potential for gout and gout flares.
The Role of High-Purine Foods The uric acid in your blood comes from purines, substances that are produced by your body and also found in many foods. Most of your uric acid (2/3) is produced naturally by your body, while the rest (1/3) comes from your diet.
|Foods with very high purine levels(up to 1,000 mg per 3.5 ounce serving): ||Anchovies, Brains, Gravies, Kidneys,Liver, Sardines, Sweetbreads|
|Foods with high and moderately high purine levels(5-100 mg per 3.5 ounch serving): ||Asparagus, Bacon, Beef, Bluefish, Bouillon, Calf tongue, Carp, Cauliflower, Chicken, Chicken soup, Codfish, Crab, Duck, Goose, Halibut, Ham, Kidney beans, Lamb, Lentils, Lima beans, Lobster, Mushrooms, Mutton, Navy beans, Oatmeal, Oysters, Peas, Perch, Pork, Rabbit, Salmon, Sheep, Shellfish, Snapper, Spinach, Tripe, Trout, Tuna, Turkey, Veal, Venison |
There's no denying that important steps like drinking plenty of nonalcoholic beverages (lots of water, less alcohol), exercising, maintaining a healthy weight, and limiting high-purine foods are smart choices for people with gout.
