Gout Symptoms - Gout Symptoms - Know Them

You may be experiencing gout symptom and you don't even know it. You may blame it on a number of other causes such as working conditions, not eating right, to name just a few of the excuses you come up with so you don't realize you may have a gout symptom.


One of the most recognizable gout symptom is a severe or sudden attack of pain. It will cause tenderness, warmth, redness and perhaps some swelling in some of the affected joints. The title of this composition could be rightly be Gout. This is because what is mentioned here is mostly about Gout. :evil:

You know what gout is, then you can be aware if you are having a gout symptom. What gout is is a painful inflammation of the joints. It is a form of arthritis and eating certain foods can cause severe gout symptom. If diet plays a significant factor, than treatment of gout symptom should be done through proper diet as well as the proper medication. We hope you develop a better understanding of Gout Pain on completion of this article on Gout Pain. Only if the article is understood is it's benefit reached. ;)

Many people consider gout an old fashioned disease that has all but been eradicated. Not true, many people suffer daily from a gout symptom of one kind or another. How can you know if what you are suffering is truly a gout symptom? Do your research online and you can know if your gout symptom is something that is treatable, or much more serious. Once you are through reading what is written here on Gout, have you considered recollecting what has been written and writing them down? This way, you are bound to have a better understanding on Gout.

Gout Symptoms Usually Attack Just a Single Joint At a Time

It especially likes to go after the big toe. The why of that is probably buried deep in scientific annals, but whatever, it is true. Those with gout must watch that they don't mistreat their condition and lose a toe. Other symptoms of gout can be pain in the foot, ankle, wrist, hand and elbow. It seems as if deposits of chemicals called uric acid also called tophi will appear as lumps beneath the skin surrounding the joint. Saying that all that is written here is all there is on Gout Pain would be an understatement. Very much more has to be learnt and propagated bout Gout Pain.

Gout is a medical condition which poses a serious threat to your health. Gout is known to have an impact that will last a very long time. These effects of the gout can also continue between the gout attacks as well. Joint damage is one of the most common effect of the gout. Other gout complications that may have serious long term effect on your body are: nerve damage in the ares of the gout attacks, kidney stones and even problems with the function of your kidney. :)

Although Gout Produces Brutal Pain, It is Rarely Life-Threatening

However, the condition requires proper diagnosis and treatment by a doctor, who can rule out other causes of joint pain and prescribe effective medications. Once you've seen your physician, however, there are a few things you should do on your own. Responsibility is what makes a person. So we felt it our responsibility to elaborate more on Treating Gout so that not only us, but everyone knew more about it!

Take a Nonprescription Anti-Inflammatory

Inflammation causes swelling, which worsens pain. Both ibuprofen and aspirin are anti-inflammatories, but when taken at low levels, aspirin may actually make the pain worse, so reach for the ibuprofen when treating gout. Failure is the stepping stone to success. So if you do fail to understand this article on Gout, don't fret. Read it again a few times, and you are sure to finally get its meaning.


There are several conditions that can result in gout, but the primary cause is an abnormally high level of uric acid in the blood, either from the body's producing too much or from the body's not excreting it properly. Gout is more common in men than in women, possibly because the female body eliminates uric acid more efficiently. The disease often strikes middle-aged males, especially men who are overweight and drink too much alcohol. But healthy people can develop gout, too. For instance, allowing yourself to become severely dehydrated may trigger an attack. Thinking of what to do upon reading this article on Treating Gout? Well you can very well use the information constructively by imparting it to others.

Avoid Icing or Heating the Area

Unlike other types of pain, gout doesn't respond well to heat or ice therapy. 6. Wear comfortable shoes. For gout sufferers, styles that offer a lot of room for the toes are the best choice. Developing a basis for this composition on Gout Sufferers was a lengthy task. It took lots of patience and hard work to develop.

Keep the Joint Elevated

Let gravity help reduce inflammation by slowing the rush of blood to the gout inflicted joint. 3. Immobilize the joint. The less you move the joint, the better it will feel. Simply lying still will help, though you may want to build a splint for the injured joint. Ask your doctor how, or consult a first-aid guide.

As of now, January 2005, more than half of all north Americans are struggling with obesity. The 'quick fix' for 'fat' for the last 40+ years, becoming ever more popular, has become the Atkins Diet. The Atkins Diet was first popularized in the U. S. Air Force during the 1960's.

The third myth: Mention the Atkins Diet and most people's reaction is 'Oh, yes, the 'high protein' diet.' Not true at all --- it's a 'Low Carb' diet ' protein intake remains unchanged. Some carbs only, not all, are restricted (versus eliminated completely); fats, particularly in older people, need to be restricted; protein should be kept to 4-6 ounce portions per meal, the lower values for breakfast and lunch. What you need to increase is your intake of high-fiber foods such as celery, etc.

Disclaimer: This article in no way should be taken as 'medical advice' on any product, condition or course of action, nor does it constitute in any way 'medical advice' endorsing any specific product, specific result, nor any possible cure for any condition or problem. This article is meant as a source of information upon which you may base your decision as to whether or not you should begin using any vitamin, mineral and/or herbal supplement for better health, or begin using a 'greens' product as a dietary supplement. Quality is better than quantity. It is of no use writing numerous pages of nonsense for the reader. Instead, it is better to write a short, and informative article on specific subjects like Gout Diabetes. People tend to enjoy it more.

The first myth: many dieters who use this program believe that calories and fat do not matter when eating low carb food, but in some cases this has proven to be fatal. Depending upon your particular body chemistry, when eating high fat food your cholesterol could climb and climb, leading to a heart attack or stroke. Also, it has now been proven that the older we become the less our body is able to metabolize the 'high fat' portion of the Atkins 'lo carb' diet, leading to additional dietary and health problems.

This is Ridiculous

Why? Because the elimination of carbohydrates and the reduction of the fresh fruits and vegetables actually throws your health into a major imbalance. Overloading your unbalanced diet by an excess of protein intake (adding that steak, above) to 'increase the volume' to a satisfying level merely exacerbates this imbalance. :o.

The reason why the Atkins Diet works is because your body metabolizes its stored fat (carbohydrates) in order to burn --- digest --- the protein, fiber and fat you are eating. The Atkins Dieters tend to leave out several food groups, including fruit and vegetables, since they are 'high carb food', and then tend to grab a steak instead, which has very low carbohydrates. We have used clear and concise words in this article on Gout Diabetes to avoid any misunderstandings and confusions that can be caused due to difficult words. :lol:

What is it? Its actually two things: A food diet and exercise ' yes, simple exercise, like walking a mile a day. A completely balanced, restricted calorie, diet containing a little bit of everything. Eat three meals a day, get your sweets, carbs, veggies, fruits, juices, protein and keep it to 1200 calories a day. Eat your breakfast and go out and walk the dog ' if you don't have one, take your neighbor's. Give this diet a year of your life, weigh yourself every Monday and keep track of your weight, see where you are with it'..and make the change for the rest of your life. When you get to your target weight you may increase the diet to 1600 calories a day. This article on Gout was written with the intention of making it very memorable to its reader. Only then is an article considered to have reached it's objective. :)

The first thing you must understand is that, across the entire human spectrum, each of us is very different from one another in the chemical makeup of our body. Thus, each of us, individually, should have our own highly personalized, custom built diet, created by a dietician using a chemical makeup assessment, usually a $200 hair analysis, of our particular body type and individual nutritional needs. So far as I know, this technology and this type dietary assessment is still available only through certain holistic health practitioners and it is becoming more and more expensive. As an example, it typically costs now between $200 and $300, whereas in the mid-1970's it cost between $100 and $150.

The Atkins Diet is Very Simple --- Restrict Your Carbohydrate Intake

And guess what? It actually works. But Dr. Atkins, after the initial few years of his popularized diet, began to make modifications and refinements to the original basic diet. And several other people have taken the basic Atkins Diet, modified it just a little, and come up with a new and very workable diet.

And Not Just the Atkins Diet

Any and all diets which highly restrict or eliminate one of the essential food groups we all need to maintain optimal health is equally bad. Stop the insanity and use a REAL diet --- the only proven diet which will work for virtually everyone. It is always better to use simple English when writing descriptive articles, like this one on Gout Diabetes. It is the layman who may read such articles, and if he can't understand it, what is the point of writing it?

Your body type and chemical makeup is suitable for the Atkins Diet then by all means use it. Remember that there are several similar alternatives out there which may be more suitable than a strict Atkins, to include some of Dr. Atkins own later work and recommendations. If you have health challenges, to include a tendency for gout or actually suffer from gout, or have diabetes or any of several other disorders, the Atkins diet is definitely something you need to avoid.

There are Three Major Misconceptions to the Atkins Diet

The first common myth is many people believe this means don't worry about the amount of calories or fat you eat so long as its not carbs. The second common myth is many people believe all carbohydrates are equally bad. The third common myth is that the Atkins 'Lo-Carb' diet is actually a 'Hi-Protein' diet. All of these, however, are enormous misconceptions. Keeping to the point is very important when writing. So we have to stuck to Gout Diabetes, and have not wandered much from it to enhance understanding.

The true danger of the Atkins Diet, however, lies in the fact that, for people who already have health challenges, the Atkins Diet actually worsens some conditions and creates other health challenges that did not exist before the Atkins Diet. The worst of these is Gout. If you have a tendency to suffer gout, no matter how well controlled you have it, a strict Atkins Diet will create a severe gout condition and gout attack for you. If you merely had the tendency for gout with no active gout, the Atkins Diet will precipitate an actual condition of gout in your body. A severe case of gout requires medical intervention to correct as well as long-term dietary control and change. The long-term danger of gout is an increased tendency for heart attack and stroke. See Native's Gift for one proven help for gout. We have taken the privilege of proclaiming this article to be a very informative and interesting article on Gout. We now give you the liberty to proclaim it too. :evil:


There is a great deal of debate in the medical world about the effects of overall diet on arthritis and using diet toward alleviating the condition. Doctors have known for a long time that diet affects gout, a specific type of arthritic condition, however the jury remained out for a long time on other common types of arthritis such as rheumatoid and osteoarthritis. However, overall dietary health is important and does come into play. Being overweight can affect certain arthritic conditions, forcing some joints to carry more of a load. This added weight stresses the joints, causing overuse or more wear to components, and pain, especially in the knees. So making sure arthritic sufferers eat god foods and get help from healthcare providers to create and follow a well-balanced dietary plan is advised. To begin, here is a look at some vitamins, minerals, nutrients / foods and some herbal applications to consider. VITAMINS Vitamin B5 - When grouped and tanked together, B vitamins work at their peak. They, and B5 specifically, are good for reducing swelling. Vitamin B3 - This vitamin reduces tissue swelling and dilates small arteries, increasing blood flow. Note that Vitamin B3 is NOT advised for persons with high blood pressure, gout or sliver disorders. Vitamin B6 - Another B that reduces tissue swelling. Vitamin B12 - This vitamin aids in multiple functions. It helps with cell formation, digestion, myelin production, nerve protection. Vitamin C - This vitamin acts as an anti-inflammatory, relieving pain, and rids the body of free radicals. Vitamin E - This is a strong antioxidant that protects joints from free radicals while increases joint flexibility. Vitamin K - This vitamin assists with mineral deposit into the bone matrix.

MINERALS Boron

This trace mineral aids in bone health. Calcium - This is a much-needed mineral for bone health. Magnesium - Magnesium helps keep calcium in balance within the system. Zinc - This mineral is necessary for bone growth, but is often lacking in arthritic patients. Manganese - Manganese is also necessary for bone growth. However, do not ingest manganese with calcium because they can work against each other. Copper - Copper helps to strengthen connective tissue. Germanium - This antioxidant helps with pain relief. Sulfur - A lack of sulfur can result in deterioration of ligaments, cartilage, collagen and tendons. NUTRIENT COMBOS Chondroitin Sulfate - This lubrication in joints, joint fluid and connective tissue, can be found in the sea cucumber. Gelatin - Help with raw cartilage replenishing with this cheap source. Glucosamine Sulfate - This combo is necessary for tendon, ligament, bone, cartilage, and synovial (joint) fluid formation. Quercetin - This helps with inflammation reduction. Type II Collagen - Use this for growth and repair of joints, articular cartilage and connective tissue. :shock:

OTHER FACTORS

There are many factors to consider with regards to arthritic diets and nutritional healing, and each factor may not apply to each individual. For example, certain people are allergic to specific foods, and these allergies can indeed worsen arthritic conditions. Ingesting foods that contain sodium nitrate or tartrazine can inflame rheumatoid arthritis, while ingesting foods containing a substance called hydrazine can contribute to systemic lupus erythematosus, an arthritic condition connected to lupus. There is a rare type of arthritis called Behcet's Disease, and eating black walnuts can cause flare-ups in people with this rare condition. So as you see, there is a variety of arthritic conditions and along with them a variety of foods that may trigger them. The best way to approach the situation is to examine each arthritic condition and tailor one's approach based upon the specifics. Isn't it wonderful that we can now access information about anything, including Gout form the Internet without the hassle of going through books and magazines for matter!
