Uric Acid - List of Health Problems Because of Obesity

Obesity is because of eating too many calories and not getting enough physical activities to burn those calories. Excess calories are deposited in the body as fat.

Fatty Liver Disease:

Obesity increases the risk of developing liver disease called fatty liver disease due to accumulation of fat in liver. Gallbladder disease and gallstones: Obesity increases cholesterol deposition in gall bladder, which can lead to formation of gallstones.

Obesity increases the risk of several health problems like high blood pressure, insulin resistance, type 2 diabetes, heart diseases, stroke, gout, gallstones, colon cancer, sleep apnea and non-alcoholic fatty liver disease. We have omitted irrelevant information from this composition on Uric Acid Crystals as we though that unnecessary information may make the reader bored of reading the composition.

Sleep Apnea:

Overweight and excess fat around neck causes narrowing of airways and leads to sleep apnea. In sleep apnea, person snores heavily and stops breathing for short periods, which results in frequent awakening at night. :evil:


  • So, obesity can lead to a lot of health problems and other complications.
  • For information on role of carbohydrate and management of obesity, please visit carb blocker website. :shock:


Arthritis: Obesity and overweight increases the load on the joints such as the knee, hip and lower back, which can cause the breakdown of cartilage in the joint. Cartilage is a cushion like structure in a joint required for smooth movement of joints. Breakdown of cartilage in obesity results in joint pain and stiffness and other features of osteoarthritis. :D.

Heart Diseases:

Coronary arteries are the blood vessels that supply blood to heart muscles. Atherosclerosis or fatty deposits in coronary arteries in obesity decreases blood supply to heart muscles. Decreased oxygen supply and blood flow to heart can cause angina (chest pain) and complete blockage of blood flow to heart can cause heart attack. Inspiration can be considered to be one of the key ingredients to writing. Only if one is inspired, can one get to writing on any subject especially like Uric Acid.

High Blood Pressure:

Blood vessels carry blood from heart to different organs of the body and back to heart. The blood vessels have thick but elastic walls for proper flow of blood. Decrease in elasticity of blood vessel wall increases pressure on blood passing through these vessels. Obesity decreases elasticity of blood vessels causing increase in blood pressure. :D.

Diabetes in Obesity:

Insulin is required for entry of carbohydrate into cells from the blood. The carbohydrate in cell is utilized for energy production by the cells. Excess deposition of fat in the body causes insulin resistance, because of which, insulin cannot perform its function and sugar cannot enter into cells and remain in blood. This leads to diabetes or high blood sugar. High sugar in blood leads to complications in various organs like kidney, eyes, blood vessel, and heart.

Only a Few Vitamins Have Been Really Researched as Contributors to a Natural Gout Remedy

One is vitamin C which a few studies have found lowers uric acid levels somewhat. I have written about vitamin C for gout in earlier articles. Make sure you buy a Vitamin C preparation that contains added flavonoids, the more the better, to make it work more effectively. And buy a time (sustained) release Vitamin C product, because Vitamin C is excreted quickly.

Fish Oils are Also Good for Gout Because They Promote a Healthier Body

Their omega -3 fatty acids (EPA and DHA) are a dietary deficiency for many people, especially those who don't eat fish. Omega -3 fatty acids are required to bring about a better balance of omega -3 and omega -6 oils in the body. Most people, it is thought, do get sufficient omega -6 fatty acids, especially if they fry with oils such as corn, soy, sunflower, safflower or sesame. Or, if they use these oils as salad oils. But people don't get enough of the omega -3's. This better balance promotes better health. Gout sufferers need to be as healthy as possible. Note: gout sufferers should not eat fish high in purines such as mackerel, anchovies, and sardines. Never be reluctant to admit that you don't know. There is no one who knows everything. So if you don't know much about Kidney Stones Uric Acid, all that has to be done is to read up on it!


Other vitamins which have been reported from various sources to help in natural gout treatment are quercetin, folic acid, potassium citrate calcium, and fish oils. Every cloud has a silver lining; so consider that this article on Lower Uric Acid to be the silver lining to the clouds of articles on Lower Uric Acid. It is this article that will add more spice to the meaning of Lower Uric Acid.

Given that gout attacks are inflammatory, as shown by the painful inflammation of the affected joints, any substance which acts as an anti-inflammatory may make the attack less painful and inflamed. Fish oils have well researched anti-inflammatory properties.

Vitamins Work in Other Ways to Help in Natural Gout Treatment

Those that work as antioxidants perform the helpful function of squelching free radicals. Why is this helpful? Because during gout attacks, free radical levels rise. Some leading antioxidant vitamins are vitamin C, vitamin E, beta carotene and selenium. Did you ever believe that there was so much to learn about Natural Remedies Gout? Neither did we! Once we got to write this article, it seemed to be endless.

Calcium May be Helpful Because It Helps to Alkalize the Body, (I.E

It raises its pH levels making the body more alkaline) and thus, the theory is, more uric acid will be excreted. In pH theory, because the blood's pH must be maintained at pH 365, the body will scavenge calcium from bones to maintain blood pH at Most people, it's said, and probably most gout sufferers too, have acidic bodies (which ought to be alkaline) and therefore a deficiency of calcium. We worked as diligently as an owl in producing this composition on Gout Attacks. So only if you do read it, and appreciate its contents will we feel our efforts haven't gone in vain.

Is 2:00 a.M

You sleep soundly after savoring a scrumptious surf and turf dinner at the best restaurant in town. Suddenly an intense stinging pain caused by the soft cotton sheet resting against your big toe awakens you with a jolt! This could be an acute attack of Gout, the aftermath of a high-protein diet.

When in doubt about combining Gout's natural remedy as well as traditional, seek the advice of a medical professional. Below are other natural remedies for Gout to treatment that may prove beneficial for lowering Uric Acid levels and easing discomfort or maintaining urinary/fluid health: It is always better to use simple English when writing descriptive articles, like this one on Natural Remedies Gout. It is the layman who may read such articles, and if he can't understand it, what is the point of writing it?

Gout is a form of hereditary metabolic Arthritis uniquely characterized by searing pain affecting a single joint (usually a great toe, but may be a hand, elbow, or knee) accompanied by redness and warmth of the skin, swelling and inflammation. Keeping to the point is very important when writing. So we have to stuck to Gout Treatment, and have not wandered much from it to enhance understanding. :o.

However, before administering any kind of Gout remedy, first you need to know about the disorder that is ailing you. :)

For a natural dietary approach to the treatment of Gout look no further than your own kitchen! Also as Gout's natural remedy there the acidic foods to avoid with gout diets arthritis may respond to deliciously.

Though there is little evidence to conclusively prove it, a small study presented promising information that Uric Acid levels decreased after eating a heaping helping of Bing cherries and other red or blue berries. This is a popular home remedy for lowering Uric Acid as a natural treatment of Gout. We have used clear and concise words in this article on Gout to avoid any misunderstandings and confusions that can be caused due to difficult words.

Purine is also found in protein-rich foods such as seafood, poultry, organ meats, yeast products, as well as vegetables such as asparagus and mushrooms. Avoid these foods (and alcohol) to help prevent future flares.

During the Acute Phase of Gout, be Kind to Yourself

Stay hydrated by drinking at least 96 ounces of water daily. Keep the TV remote control handy with your feet elevated; avoid weight bearing. Lose the liquor, for it only antagonizes symptoms. Follow appropriate dietary guidelines, and if you do...you can fight the complications that obesity brings to the table. We have used a mixture of seriousness and jokes in this composition on Uric Acid. This is to liven the mood when reading about Uric Acid.

Dietary regimens that help manage symptoms of Gout include a diet high in complex carbohydrates such as bread, potatoes and pasta, and low in fats and protein. Toss in some fresh fruits and veggies including cabbage, peppers and pineapple along with low-fat dairy and...voila!

Gout Remedy, Its Treatment & Prescription Options Before exploring treatments and natural remedies for Gout, let's visit physiological basics of Gout. :o.


No matter what Gout remedy you opt for, whether in the form of Gout's natural treatments or prescribed drugs, you vow to fight the pain of flare-ups, prevent future attacks and avoid complications such as kidney stones or immobility from chronic degeneration of joints over the span of time. Time and tide waits for no man. So once we got an idea for writing on Www Gout, we decided not to waste time, but to get down to writing about it immediately!

Unlike natural remedies for Gout, prescription drugs that treat Gout focus on different mechanisms to decrease Uric Acid levels in the blood. Medications called Uricosurics, such as Probenecid, force the secretion of Uric Acid back into the urine removing it from the blood stream, while others inhibit the initial production of Uric Acid (Allopurinol, Cholchicine) in the first place.

As Gout remedy and treatment, he will probably advice medications, dietary and natural remedies for Gout that's got your goat. According to the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) approximately 3 million Americans (more men between 30-60 years than women) suffer from Gout and its ill effects. Finding the right combination of treatment and natural remedy for Gout that is safe, effective and reliable can be a challenge. This article on Gout Remedy 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.

Immediate Pain Control is Priority in Treating Acute Stages of Gout

Over the counter and prescription Analgesics such as Acetaminophen and Indomethacin, respectively, are effective in fighting pain and inflammation. As the information we produce in our writing on Uric Acid Levels may be utilized by the reader for informative purposes, it is very important that the information we provide be true. We have indeed maintained this.

Gout Purines - Uric Acid Testing

Definition

Uric acid tests are tests that are done to measure the levels of uric acid in blood serum or in urine.

Purpose


The Uric Acid Tests are Used to Evaluate the Blood Levels

Of uric acid for gout and to assess uric acid levels in the urine for kidney stone formation. The urine test is used most often to monitor patients already diagnosed with kidney stones, but it can also be used to detect disorders that affect the body's production of uric acid and to help measure the level of kidney functioning. We needed lots of concentration while writing on Uric Acid Gout as the matter we had collected was very specific and important.

  • Certain foods that are high in purine may increase the patient's levels of uric acid.
  • These include kidneys, liver, sweetbreads, sardines, anchovies, and meat extracts.


Description

The uric acid blood test is performed on a sample of the patient's blood, withdrawn from a vein into a vacuum tube. The procedure, which is called a venipuncture, takes about five minutes. The urine test requires the patient to collect all urine voided over a 24-hour period, with the exception of the very first specimen. The patient keeps the specimen container on ice or in the refrigerator during the collection period.

Urine test

Patients should be checked for the following medications before the urine test: diuretics, aspirin, pyrazinamide (Tebrazid), phenylbutazone, probenecid (Benemid), and allopurinol (Lopurin). If the patient needs to continue taking these medications, the laboratory should be notified. The magnitude of information available on Uric Acid Levels can be found out by reading the following matter on Uric Acid Levels. We ourselves were surprised at the amount! :)

Abnormal results

The critical value for the blood test is a level of uric acid higher than 12 milligrams per deciliter (about 4 ounces). Writing this composition on Purine Metabolism was a significant contribution of ours in the world of literature. Make this contribution worthwhile by using it.

Urine test

Reference values for 24-hour urinary uric acid vary from laboratory to laboratory but are generally found within the following range: 250-750 mg/24 hours. Maintaining the value of Kidney Stone was the main reason for writing this article. Only in this way will the future know more about Kidney Stone.

Bio


Uric Acid is a Waste Product that Results from the

Breakdown of purine, a nucleic acid. (Nucleic acids are the building blocks of DNA.) Uric acid is made in the liver and excreted by the kidneys. If the liver produces too much uric acid or the kidneys excrete too little, the patient will have too much uric acid in the blood. This condition is called hyperuricemia. Supersaturated uric acid in the urine (uricosuria) can crystallize to form kidney stones that may block the tubes that lead from the kidneys to the bladder (the ureters). Slang is one thing that has not been included in this composition on Purine. It is because slang only induces bad English, and loses the value of English.

Risks

Risks for the blood test are minimal, but may include slight bleeding from the puncture site, a small bruise or swelling in the area, or fainting or feeling lightheaded. Give yourself a momentary pause while reading what there is to read here on Gout Uric. Use this pause to reflect on what you have so far written on Gout Uric.


Precautions

Blood test

Patients scheduled for a blood test for uric acid should be checked for the following medications: loop diuretics (Diamox, Bumex, Edecrin, or Lasix); ethambutol (Myambutol); vincristine (Oncovin); pyrazinamide (Tebrazid); thiazide diuretics (Naturetin, Hydrex, Diuril, Esidrix, HydroDiuril, Aquatensen, Renese, Diurese); aspirin (low doses); acetaminophen (Tylenol); ascorbic acid (vitamin C preparations); levodopa (Larodopa); or phenacetin. These drugs can affect test results. :o.

Abnormally low uric acid levels may indicate that the patient is taking allopurinol or probenecid for treatment of gout; may be pregnant; or suffers from Wilson&#39;s disease or Fanconi&#39;s syndrome.

The completion of this article on Kidney Stone Formation was our prerogative since the past one month. However, we completed it within a matter of fifteen days!

The Laboratory Should Also be Notified If the Patient Has

Had recent x-ray tests requiring contrast dyes. These chemicals increase uric acid levels in urine and decrease them in blood. This can be considered to be a valuable article on Kidney Stone. It is because there is so much to learn about Kidney Stone here.

Preparation

The uric acid test requires either a blood or urine sample. For the blood sample, the patient should be fasting (nothing to eat or drink) for at least eight hours keyword the test. The urine test for uric acid requires a 24-hour urine collection. The urine test does not require the patient to fast or cut down on fluids. Some laboratories encourage patients to drink plenty of fluids during the collection period.

You wish to learn more about Steve or to request training or nutrition information, please check out his website: http://www.bodybuiltbyvictoria.com.

Increased production of uric acid may result from eating foods that are high in purine. Increased uric acid levels due to overproduction may also be caused by gout, by a genetic disorder of purine metabolism, or by metastatic cancer, destruction of red blood cells, leukemia, or cancer chemotherapy.

You Wish to Learn More about Gout, Purines, or Uric Acid,

Check out Steve&#39;s s The Internet Guides. The Internet Guide: Uric Acid: http://gout.smartadssecrets.com/uric_acid Using great confidence in ourselves, we endeavored to write such a long article on Gout Uric Acid. Such is the amount of matter found on Gout Uric Acid.

Normal results

Blood test

Reference values for blood uric acid vary from laboratory to laboratory but are generally found within the following range: Male: 2.1-8.5 mg/dL; female: 2.0-6.6 mg/dL. Values may be slightly higher in the elderly. The sources used for the information for this article on Uric Acid Gout are all dependable ones. This is so that there be no confusion in the authenticity of the article. :idea:

Have Sufficient Rest as Fatigue or Even Mild Tiredness can Exacerbate Arthritis

Healthy weight management is also important as being overweight can burden the joints, especially the knees, thus aggravating the pain. You may also consider Bowen therapy, a series of precise connective, non-invasive tissue moves that stimulates the energy flow and activates the body's natural healing ability. Self-praise is no praise. So we don't want to praise ourselves on the effort put in writing on Gout Natural. instead, we would like to hear your praise after reading it!

Answer: GOUT is a Painful and Potentially Disabling Form of Arthritis

It causes pain, tenderness, redness, warmth and swelling in some joints. This is due to the increasing levels of uric acids in the body. We find great potential in Gout Joint. This is the reason we have used this opportunity to let you learn the potential that lies in Gout Joint.


Since thousands of years ago, the natives of south and southeastern Africa have known a little something about medicinally treating inflammation. Named for the appearance of the fruit of its root, Devil's Claw (also referred to as Cat's Claw) is recognized by its hook-like protrusions on pods of the plant.


The chemical, principle extracted from the Devil's Claw root, (Harpagoside procumbens) is a Glycoside (sugar derivative) called Harpagoside. This active ingredient contributes the natural anti-inflammatory properties used as a Gout remedy and other painful disorders of the Musculoskeletal system.

Higher Doses can be Taken During the Painful Acute Phase of Gout

Natural remedy such as Devil's Claw can be taken otherwise, i.e., if your beverage of choice is tea, add one teaspoon of dried root of Devil's Claw in 2 cups of boiling water and steep for 20 minutes before straining it then allow it to cool.

While experts have not been able to isolate the exact mechanism of action of Devil's Claw, numerous studies have been conducted with documented success in pain relief of Gout and other ailments. Several of those studies compared Devil's Claw root extract to Cox-2 inhibitors such as Vioxx in clinical trials. They concluded that the natural supplement appeared to work in the same manner as non-steroidal anti-inflammatory medications (NSAIDS). Revision is very important when writing or speaking about a topic. We had a lot of drafting to do to come to this final product on Gout.

For natural therapy of Gout and other Musculoskeletal disorders in tablet form, Devil's Claw is recommended for adults 18 and older only. For dosing, read the label information on the bottle to determine the amount of Harpagoside formulated and adjust your dose to be equivalent to 50-100 mg, taking it two or three times a day. It is of no use thinking that you know everything, when in reality, you don't know anything! It is only because we knew so much about Gout Info that we got down to writing about it!

Serious potential interactions between the ingredients exist, and there are those among us that should steer clear as some substances can be potentially harmful to our health and well-being. We tried to create as much matter for your understanding when writing on Treat Gout. We do hope that the matter provided here is sufficient to you.

Extract of Devil's Claw root made its way to Europe in the early 1900s and was used to improve digestion and inflammation, but it is more widely used today as a natural Gout remedy and other joint ailments.

Gout is a metabolic disorder created when uric acid, which is normally excreted from the body in the urine, fails to metabolize properly and builds up in the blood stream. As it spills into the blood system, crystals are formed that collect in a joint and its surrounding tissues causing intense pain and severe inflammation. :)

Though Devil's Claw a well-known Gout Remedy is used most commonly for natural treatment of the pain and inflammation of Gout, Rheumatoid Arthritis and muscle pain, it is also used for complaints related to stomach and gall bladder. Gout Info came into being some time back. However, would you believe that there are some people who still don't know what a Gout Info is? :lol:

Devil's Claw is tolerated well by the vast majority of those treating their Gout by natural means, but be sure to talk with your doctor first - especially if you have ulcers, diabetes, high or low blood pressure, plant allergies, heart problems, are pregnant, could become pregnant or if you a nursing mother. Developing a gradual interest in Uric Acid Levels was the basis for writing this article. On reading this, you will gradually get interested in Uric Acid Levels.


Some reports of ringing in the ears and upset stomach have been associated with taking Devil's Claw. Weigh your treatment options with natural supplementation carefully and use these tools to treat your Gout with natural remedies and avoid that painful flare-up! :shock:

You can enjoy the tea 2 or 3 times a day as Gout's natural remedy or to improve indigestion and loss of appetite. As with any medicinal substances you chose to consume, it is important to first consult with your health care provider for help coordinating the use of various natural supplements - especially in conjunction with traditional medications.

Order to understand how the herb Devil's Claw can be effective as a natural Gout remedy, let's discuss the definition of Gout and how it presents itself in the body. Developing a vision on Gout Info, we saw the need of providing some enlightenment in Gout Info for others to learn more about Gout Info.

The consistent use of Devil's Claw may reduce the need for other NSAIDS and allow a person suffering from Gout to take lower doses of pain and anti-inflammatory medications, and possibly omit them in the future. Developing a basis for this composition on Uric Acid was a lengthy task. It took lots of patience and hard work to develop.

Gout Treatment - Proper Gout Diet Prevents and Eases Gout Symptoms

Also referred to as "the disease of kings", the occurrence and development of gout are strongly determined by improper diet. In the past, the disease predominantly affected nobles and royalty, due to their access to an abundance of foods that are known today to have high risks of causing gout. These days, many people are still confronted with gout, as they consume foods that interfere in the normal activity of the body. Mostly people living in developed societies are the ones who tend to be affected by gout. The consumption of some exotic foods like seafood (oysters, caviar, calamari, sushi) or improper diets that contain a lot of meats (pork, poultry, beef) are the factors that seem to facilitate the occurrence and the development of the disease. Statistics indicate that people who live in less-developed countries have a smaller chance of developing gout. Also, research results reveal the preponderance of obese people among those who are suffering from different forms of gout. ;)

Proper gout diet and a healthy lifestyle are the best means of preventing and easing the symptoms of gout. It is a fact that there is no specific cure for gout and the treatment often prescribed for the disease usually acts by controlling pain attacks and inflammation. There is little that medicines can do for the patients who suffer from gout, especially for those who have chronic forms of the disease. Proper gout diet can both ease the symptoms of gout and prevent injury and complications. It is known to be the best way of handling the effects of the disease. The length of an article is rather immaterial about its response from people. People are more interested in the matter about Gout Prevent, and not length.

The foods that are known to have high levels of purine are meats like pork, beef, lamb, poultry, organ meats (brain, kidneys, liver and heart), fish and seafood (sardines, mackerel, oysters, caviar, calamari and crabs) and fat dairy products such as cheese, milk and butter. Even some vegetables like spinach, beans and peas are known to conatin large amounts of purines. However, green vegetables are thought to have no malign effects to the body. Fruits not only have low levels of purines, (and they are strongly recommended in any gout diet) but they also contain vitamins and minerals that are vital in the proper functioning of the body. Vitamin C, contained by most fruits, is a powerful natural anti-oxidant which helps in easing the symptoms of gout. The more interesting an article, the more takers there are for the article. So we have made it a point to make this article on Gout as interesting as possible! :)



Gout is a type of rheumatoid gout arthritis that causes pain and inflammation of the joints. The joints of the lower body seem to be affected the most. People with gout experience discomfort, swelling, local irritation and redness, itching sensations, pain, sometimes feeling a sensation of cold around the affected areas, the skin in those regions often looking stretched. Gout can also affect skin and soft tissue such as muscles and tendons, making them less flexible. Gout is known to be caused mainly by the presence in excess of crystallized uric acid deposits inside the body, which are difficultly eliminated by the kidneys. Improper diet can lead to more accumulation of uric acid in the body, as some foods that contain high levels of purine are synthesized by the body into uric acid. As we got to writing on Purines, we found that the time we were given to write was inadequate to write all that there is to write about Purines! So vast are its resources. :lol:


After four months on this diet the effects on uric acid levels and gout attacks were quite impressive. Weight loss and uric acid levels Weight loss over the period was almost 17lbs ( 7kg) i.e. at a rate of about 1lb a week. All but one of the patients lost weight. The median uric acid (UA) fall was 7mg/dL.Another very interesting finding was that a more elevated blood uric acid level at the start of the study, meant a large fall of blood uric acid by the end of it. Uric acid levels normalised in 7 of 12 patients who had raised levels of uric acid (UA) before the study.

NB. The contents of this article contain medical information not medical advice. Please always discuss remedies with your doctor or other health care professional before implementing any treatment. :o.

And gout attacks? Results overall were expressed as a median. Before the study, participants had at least two attacks in the preceding four months. Median monthly attacks before the study were After it, attacks fell to The fall in the number of gout attacks occurred in all except one patient. The exception participant had shorter and less severe attacks. Eight of the 13 did not have a gout attack during the four month study period, although as mentioned, they had all had at least two in the previous four months and, as noted above, the median was 1 a month, or one attack a fortnight, (every two weeks). The facts on Gout Attack mentioned here have a consequential impact on your understanding on Gout Attack. This is because these facts are the basic and important points about Gout Attack. ;)

One Participant Did Not Have a Raised UA Level Before the Start

It was about 5.9mg/dL. But we already know that gout can occur in people with normal uric acid levels, so this was not unusual. The first impression is the best impression. We have written this article on Allopurinol Gout in such a way that the first impression you get will definitely make you want to read more about it!

Note Especially that the Mean Uric Acid (UA) Fall Was

7mg/dL. In a couple of cases it fell by 2 mg/dL and by 5mg/dL respectively. Hyperuricemia, (excess uric acid), which may lead to gout, is reckoned to exist if the UA levels exceed 2 mg/dL (men), and 0 mg/dL (women). The usual UA target in gout treatment is 0 mg/dL (somewhat less in women) because at this level the MSU crystals, formed mainly from uric acid may dissolve. (It is the immune system's response to these crystals, which it regards as foreign bodies, which causes the pain and inflammation of gout).

Were the study patients taking long term medications, such as Allopurinol, for their gout? They were not. They were only taking medications for gout attacks. The study report did not say how much water they drank. Most gout sufferers know that drinking lots of water helps to remove uric acid. In gout treatment there are always caveats. The study was small. Only 13 male gout sufferers. The study lasted just four months, although there were follow-up results after one year (median). The researchers noted a connection between weight loss and a fall in uric acid levels in another study and expected the nutrient proportions (40:30: contributed to the uric acid fall. They thought that the dietary measures caused the desired improvement in insulin sensitivity. We have included the history of Gout here so that you will learn more about its history. It is only through it's history can you learn more about Gout.


This study, based on the Zone diet, did have a positive effect on markers of insulin resistance: triglycerides, total cholesterol, LDL cholesterol ("bad" cholesterol) fell. HDL cholesterol ("good" cholesterol) did not fall. But my purpose in this article is mainly to describe its direct effect on uric acid levels and gout attacks.


So a fall of 1.7 mg/dL, given these numbers, is quite significant, although you should note that many gout sufferers have UA levels much higher than 7.2 mg/dL, and some gout sufferers do not have excess uric acid. Don't be surprised if you find anything unusual here about Www Gout. There has been some interesting and unusual things here worth reading. ;)

Eases Symptoms of Irritable Bowel Syndrome ___ 8 Herbal Remedies for



This is the first of an article series about this diet. See the bottom of this article for how to read the second article. Natural gout treatment largely involves diet. The most widely touted gout diet for sufferers of "the disease of kings," is the low purine gout diet. The cause of gout theory behind it is that because uric acid is made from purines, and because uric acid is the gout culprit, purine intake from foods and beverages should be restricted. ;)

But Some Studies Have Found that a Low Purine Gout Diet Has No Effect on Uric Acid Levels

Most likely one reason is because most uric acid in the body is made in the liver from purine molecules of DNA and RNA, and not from the purines in foods and beverages. Another reason may be that the problem for a gout sufferer is not that he/she is producing too much uric acid but that he/she is not excreting enough. We have included some fresh and interesting information on Lower Uric Acid. In this way, you are updated on the developments of Lower Uric Acid.

Meat and Alcohol They also ate meat, no doubt lean meat since mono and polyunsaturated fats were encouraged. (Meat does contain both these fats, as well as saturated fats). Participants' alcohol consumption was moderate, there were no alcohol rules, and it remained the same as usual.

Anyone going on the Zone diet will have their personal daily carbohydrate, protein, and fat requirement. How to discover it is explained in Barry Sears' "Enter the Zone" book. The amount of protein you can eat determines the amounts of carbohydrates and unsaturated fats, in the 4:3:3 proportions, you can eat. Why the 4:3:3 rule is important is also explained in the book. If you know about soccer, you can think of the 4:3:3 rule as the commonly used soccer team formation. Or, another way of putting it, is to say that calories from protein are 75 (75%) of calories from carbohydrate and calories from fat are in the same proportion as calories from protein. Getting almost to 4:3:3 is allowed. We cannot be blamed if you find any other article resembling the matter we have written here about Gout Diet. What we have done here is our copyright material!

Refined carbohydrate foods were swapped for complex carbohydrate foods. i.e. they ate complex carbohydrates, not refined carbohydrates. Complex carbohydrates can be found in foods made from whole grains, (eg. whole grain flours and products made from them), and in many vegetables, low sugar fruits and beans.


To examine whether a diet could affect the markers that show insulin resistance exists, and lower uric acid levels, researchers in South Africa put 13 males, all gout sufferers, on a diet governed by three cardinal rules of the Zone diet, the well-known diet book written in the1990's by Barry Sears PhD. It was our decision to write so much on Gout Sufferer after finding out that there is still so much to learn on Gout Sufferer.

NB. The contents of this article contain medical information not medical advice. Please always discuss remedies with your doctor or other health care professional before implementing any treatment. It may take some time to comprehend the matter on Gout that we have listed here. However, it is only through it's complete comprehension would you get the right picture of Gout.

Refined and simple carbohydrates are found in foods made from refined grains (for example refined flours which are the basis for pasta, breads, cakes, biscuits (cookies) pies, pastries); white rice; and most cereals. And notably from sugars with the exception of fruit sugar,(fructose) and galactose. Simple carbohydrates include corn and other syrups, table sugar and honey; candies (sweets); processed foods with added sugar; and some fruits and vegetables.

RULES Calories were restricted to 1,600 a day: 40% from carbohydrates, 30% from protein and 30% from mono and poly unsaturated fats. We are proud to say we have dominance in the say of Purines. This is because we have read vastly and extensively on Purines.

Complex carbohydrates are lower on the Glycemic Index (GI) scale than refined carbohydrates because they have a slower effect on blood glucose, and so the response of insulin to blood glucose is slower and more moderate. Insulin is much more responsive to refined and simple carbohydrates. The development of Gout Treatment has been explained in detail in this article on Gout Treatment. Read it to find something interesting and surprising!

Fats Saturated fats, which are among the fats found in meat fat, dairy products, beef tallow (beef dripping) and lard, were swapped for monounsaturated fats (e.g. olive oil, canola oil) and polyunsaturated fats, (oils such as corn, sunflower and soybean oils). However, in the study, participants took polyunsaturated fats from fish. They were advised to eat fish at least four times a week during the study, even fish that are high purine such as mackerel.

There is another cause of gout theory, which is that excess uric acid (hyperuricemia) is the result of insulin resistance, the pre type 2 diabetes condition. Insulin resistance in gout has been the subject of many studies. Simply put, insulin resistance is the condition where the cells become more resistant to allowing insulin to deliver glucose (mainly broken down from carbohydrate in foods) to them, for the purpose of energy creation. It's as if the jailer refuses to open the door of the cell. It's one of the causes of excess insulin. Excess insulin has been found in a number of studies to inhibit uric acid excretion as well as causing other problems.
