Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD) is slow progressive disease and it is may be accompanied with some complications. Gout attacks about 47% to 54% of CKD patients. You may be wondering why you get gout with CKD. You can find the answer in this article.
Gout is a painful disease that occurs when uric acid, a normal waste product, builds up in the blood and forms crystals in the joints and/or kidneys.
Uric acid normally dissolves in the blood, processes through the kidney, and leaves the body in the urine. If the body makes extra uric acid, or if the kidneys cannot clear enough of it, then uric acid levels in the blood will become too high, a condition known as hyperuricemia. This is the most commonly seen cause of gout in Chronic Kidney Disease.
To treat gout effectively, you should keep a healthy life habit and take timely and proper treatment.
● Restrict your diet: Uric acid comes from the breakdown of purines, naturally-occurring chemicals that are found in both our diets and our bodies. Foods and drinks that contribute most to hyperuricemia and gout include: redmeat, organ meat, seafood, beer, liquor, and sugar-sweetened items, especially with high fructose corn syrup. Health problems such as obesity, high blood pressure, high blood sugar, and high cholesterol may also lead to increased uric acid and the development of gout.
2. Adjust your medicines: Since some some medications may also increase risk of gout, you should review all your medications and supplements with your doctor.
3. Improve your kidney function: As mentioned above, damaged kidney is the root cause of gout, you should take treatment to improve kidney function so as to accelerate the discharge of uric acid. You can trust Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy that is based on Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM). It can promote the blood circulation and repair damaged renal intrinsic cells.
