Get Rid Of Uric Acid Problem

Nowadays, Gout is a common type of arthritis that occurs when there is too much uric acid (sodium urate) in the blood, tissues, and urine.

‘Uric acid is the end product of the metabolism of a class of chemicals known as purines.’

High levels of uric acid is referred as Hyperuricemia, occurs when excess uric acid concentrates in the blood.

Mechanism :

Several factors contribute to the development of high uric acid such as high levels of nitrogen-containing compounds, or purines, which accumulate faster than they can be eliminated thus body does not produce enough of the digestive enzyme uricase, which oxidizes relatively insoluble uric acid into a highly soluble compound.  As a result, uric acid accumulates in the blood and tissues and, ultimately crystallizes. When it crystallizes, uric acid takes on a shape like that of a needle and, like a needle; it jabs its way into the joints.

It should be noted that uric acid is not a fundamentally harmful substance, but..

‘A powerful antioxidant, almost as effective as vitamin C, that helps to protect cells from oxidative damage..’

It is only when levels become abnormally elevated that it becomes a problem. Elevated levels of uric acid in the blood can also be an indicator of poor kidney function.

Body part which is affected!!!

Uric acid seems to prefer the joint of the big toe, but other joints can be vulnerable as well, including the mid foot, ankle, knee, wrist and even the fingers. Uric acid is more likely `to crystallize at lower temperatures, which may explain why roughly 90 percent of gout attacks affect cooler extremities like the big toe.

Symptoms of hyperuricemia and gout include..

Acute pain is usually the first symptom. Then the affected joints become inflamed, almost infected-looking—red, swollen, hot and extremely sensitive to the touch. Repeated attacks of gout over a long period of time can lead to joint damage. Fatigue or the formation of kidney stones is also a symptoms of high uric acid.

Which kind of person affected by gout?

It affects people from all walks of life, most commonly men between the ages of forty and fifty. It may be inherited or bought on by crash dieting, drinking, certain medications, overeating, stress, surgery, or injury to a joint. Approximately 90 percent of the people who suffer from gout are male.
