Uric Acid Levels - Useful Information on Gout Condition

The medical condition known by most of the people as Gout is actually hyperuricemia, a disease occurring due to an increase of the uric acid blood level. It tends to appear more often in men at the age of 50 and over when uric acid crystals form irritating accumulations in joints all over the body. The uric acid deposits assemble a bump or a growth and firstly appear at the base of the big toe, in the heel, hand or knee. Ears are also susceptible to become irritated by the accumulation of urats. Main symptoms of the Gout are inflammation in the joint area and pain creating discomfort and lack of sleep.

Order to prevent the occurrence of Gout in yourself, try to avoid food and products with high content of purinic bases like organ meats and yeast laden, sardines, broths, herring, mushrooms, fish, lentils, oat meals and spinach. High levels of amino acids are also contained in peas, beans and beer. :oops:

Recent studies on beer consumers have shown the real threat is represents in the development of Gout. Its alcohol content increases the level of uric acid in the blood and the fermented yeast doubles the actual danger for hyperuricemia. A clinical study on rheumatism patients showed a 41% of gout sufferers consuming more than 12 ounce of beer every day compared to only 17% in the control group with healthy subjects. :)



Those who want to try avoiding this gout condition must known what they should eat to prevent or treat it. A daily consume of fresh or canned cherries can really help you get rid of Gout. According to a clinical study in a group of gout sufferers, the daily use of half pound fresh or canned cherries returned the disturbed uric acid levels in the blood back to normal in just a few days. No further attacks of Gout were registered in these patients. Also helpful was proved to be cherry juice. Having been given the assignment of writing an interesting presentation on Www Gout, this is what we came up with. Just hope you find it interesting too!

The uric acid is in fact a waste product occurring during the breakdown of purine amino acids. In normal conditions, uric acid is being dissolved in the blood and eliminated by the kidneys. When kidneys fail to do their job or the amount of destroyed purine is very high, uric acid crystals accumulate and lead to the apparition of Gout. AN administration of water-soluble potassium product would create a balance in the amino acid metabolism and resolve the problems. 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.

Acupressure can provide wonderful relief for gout attacks and it can be used as a complimentary treatment with medication or with other natural remedies like nutritional therapy. Nutritional therapy is type of natural cure for gout that is based on the belief that food contains the natural medicines our body requires in order to obtain and sustain health. :D.

Ingesting too little or too much of one substance - Ingesting something with ingredients you are allergic too - Combining different products that may not be compatible


Folic Acid - This is the synthetic version of Folate (a water-soluble B vitamin that is naturally found in dark leafy green vegetables and citrus fruits) that is used in supplements. :idea:

Benefits - Studies have found that high doses of folic acid may help reduce uric acid levels. Caution - Extremely high doses of folic acid can lead to digestive stress and may not be safe for pregnant or nursing women, or those who suffer from seizures, kidney or liver disease. :shock:

Caution - Not recommended for those allergic to pineapples, pregnant women, those with high blood pressure, kidney or liver disease. This nutritional therapy may not be compatible with other medications and can cause side effects such as nausea, vomiting and diarrhea. It is designed for short-term use. Once you are through reading what is written here on Lower Uric Acid Blood, have you considered recollecting what has been written and writing them down? This way, you are bound to have a better understanding on Lower Uric Acid Blood.

Vitamin A - Vitamin E - Pantothenic acid (vitamin B - Selenium - Evening primrose oil - Fish oil - Aspartic acid The title of this composition could be rightly be Reduce Uric Acid. This is because what is mentioned here is mostly about Reduce Uric Acid. :lol:

How can Nutritional Therapy Help Gout?

Although it is often used as a complimentary treatment with medication, nutritional therapy can help gout sufferers find relief from gout attacks by reducing inflammation. It can also prevent gout from recurring by lowering and controlling uric acid levels in the blood. In addition, proper nutritional therapy is safe to use for most people. This is a systematic presentation on the uses and history of Prevent Gout. Use it to understand reasons to love your gout prevention diet and it's functioning.

What is Proper Nutritional Therapy?

The term "proper" has been used to clarify that like any other treatment; nutritional therapy can produce negative effects or be ineffective if used incorrectly, such as - We hope you develop a better understanding of Preventing Gout on completion of this article on Preventing Gout. Only if the article is understood is it's benefit reached. :oops:

Vitamin C - This is an essential antioxidant water-soluble vitamin (found in citrus fruits and green leafy vegetables, etc.) Benefits - Studies have found that high doses of vitamin C can increase urinary excretion of uric acid, and lower uric acid in the blood.

Caution - More studies need to be conducted to find out the true benefits and side effects of this nutritional therapy. Other nutritional therapy that is recommended which may prove effective in relieving and preventing gout include: Saying that all that is written here is all there is on Uric Acid Levels would be an understatement. Very much more has to be learnt and propagated bout Uric Acid Levels.

What is the nutritional therapy prescribed for gout relief and prevention? The following is a list of some nutritional therapy recommended for gout sufferers, and includes the benefits and precautions associated with each - :o.

According to researchers at Johns Hopkins, "There's no denying that there is a strong connection between what you eat and how you feel, and the difference is likely to become more and more apparent the older you get." (Johns Hopkins Health 2000, www.intelihealth.org) :oops:

LUNCH: A fresh salad with vegetable, such as mushrooms, carrots, tomatoes, radishes, celery and low-fat dressing; a four-ounce serving of protein, such as fish, chicken, turkey, tofu or beans; one bread serving; a piece of fruit. Whenever one reads any reading matter likeGout, it is vital that the person enjoys reading it. One should grasp the meaning of the matter, only then can it be considered that its reading is complete.

Diet to Promote Joint Comfort from Johns Hopkins Health 2000

* BREAKFAST: One piece or serving of fresh fruit; one slice of bread or bowl of cereal; one protein, such as an egg or a cup of yogurt. We have tried to place the best definition about Gout in this article. This has taken a lot of time, but we only wish that the definition we gave suits your needs.

Doctors also targeted allergies or intolerance for dairy products, preservatives found in a wide variety of foods and drugs along with members of the nightshade family as possible culprits for joint problems. In addition, eating or drinking anything tainted with Salmonella or other bacteria has been shown to provoke the immune system to attack the joints, a condition known as "Reiter's syndrome." Gout proved to be the foundation for the writing of this page. We have used all facts and definitions of Gout to produce worthwhile reading material for you.

Although denied by the medical profession for the last three decades, diet does influence your pain... Prior to the denial phase of medicine it was and in some circles still a known factor that certain foods and drinks trigger certain problems. For instance, Joint problems have been found to be exacerbated by the use of alcohol, liver and other organ meats. The most famous joint problem recognized is "Gout," even though the pharmaceutical companies have tried to convince the world this is not true, it certainly is and gout suffers who have had direct results of those foods will tell you... Chemicals concocted by the pharmaceutical industry does help with a few cases but the digestive system is suffering the affects as well as the liver and kidneys which have to filter out the foreign matter in the body! As we get older our digestive system does not work as fast nor as thorough as it needs to and therefore medications can create as many or more problems than they help! :oops:


The Johns Hopkins researchers say that you should experiment with different foods to ascertain which ones will help you and which ones will cause you pain. With over 100 different kinds of bone/joint problems classified under the heading of "arthritis" it is easy to understand why experimenting with different foods must be left up to you. Also as explained by the Johns Hopkins papers, "The more pressure and weight on your joints, the more they will hurt. Even and extra 10 pounds stresses the joints." A desirable reason to lose weight of plagued with joint/bone problems! :lol:

AFTERNOON SNACK: One fruit or raw vegetable; one serving of bread; a glass of low-fat milk or a cup of low-fat yogurt. * DINNER: A four-ounce serving of protein, such as fish, tofu, chicken, beans, turkey or beef; one carbohydrate, such as a baked potato, rice, bread or pasta; one cup of steamed vegetables (avoid starches like peas or corn); a fresh salad with low-fat dressing.

However, Restricting Purines in Your Diet is Not Difficult, So It is Still Worth Doing

The conventional wisdom may be correct. Uric acid level tests should tell if a low purine diet works for you. You may be inquisitive as to where we got the matter for writing this article on Uric Acid Levels. Of course through our general knowledge, and the Internet!

VITAMIN C as a GOUT PREVENTOR

If 500 mg daily of Vitamin C can reduce uric acid levels, then Vitamin C ought to act as a preventative gout vitamin too. A Taiwan study of males in the late 1990's examined the weight, diet and lifestyles of gout and non-gout sufferers in Taiwan. It concluded that Vitamin C, folic acid (folate) and fibre were protective against gout.

Such a rapid change concerned the authors of one study in the 1970's who had recorded that mega doses of Vitamin C (4,000 mg and 8,000 mg daily) reduced uric acid levels significantly, and by more than in the 2005 study. However, as far as Vitamin C induced changes in uric acid levels is concerned, this triggering has not been reported in any study. :)

Also reached the well-known and accepted conclusion that hypertension (high blood pressure) and obesity are risk factors for gout. And one other very different conclusion from the conventional wisdom about purines -- purine intake, with the exception of alcohol, was NOT associated with a risk of gout.

The CAUTION

Rapid changes in uric acid levels can trigger a gout attack. This rapid change can be brought about by many factors in addition to possibly mega doses of Vitamin C and by drugs such as probenecid and sulfinpyrazone. People who are susceptible to gout must consider these rapid changes. 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 Levels.

One complicating factor is that elusive fact that most people with hyperuricemia (excess uric acid)do not get gout. Another is that some people with normal uric acid levels do. We have omitted irrelevant information from this composition on Gout Attack as we though that unnecessary information may make the reader bored of reading the composition.

5 mg/dL is a useful reduction but for most people probably not a natural remedy for gout, although the 0.5 mg/dL figure is an average and some participants did better. But a 0.5mg/dL reduction will not be enough to reduce uric acid below the 6.0 mg/dL level at which the MSU crystals may dissolve. However, when combined with other vitamins for gout, a low purine diet and other natural remedies for gout, it could be. The initial stages of this article on Purine Intake proved to be difficult. However, with hard work and perseverance, we have succeeded in providing an interesting and informative article for you to read. :roll:

1,000 MG PLUS DOSES

If you wish to try Vitamin C for gout in doses over 1,000 mg as part of a natural gout remedy discuss it with your doctor or a qualified naturopathic doctor. The 500 mg level is below the British government's 1,000 mg (1 gram) recommended upper safety level safety limit for Vitamin C. It is half of the maximum amount (1,000 mg) in a Vitamin C tablet sold in the U.S. and many other countries.

Few studies over the past 30 years have concluded that Vitamin C will reduce the uric acid level. They have differed in the amount of Vitamin C given to study participants. A U.S. study of 184 non-smokers, published in 2005, concluded that the amount required to achieve a serum (blood) uric acid level reduction was 500 mg daily. (The Vitamin C was taken as a supplement). This is not a mega dose. We take pride in saying that this article on Purine is like a jewel of our articles. This article has been accepted by the general public as a most informative article on Purine.


And because their flavonoids amounts are high, their flavonoids-to-Vitamin C ratio is pretty good which means that their Vitamin C is likely to be better absorbed and thus have a stronger therapeutic effect. :o


Some studies have shown that Vitamin C does reduce uric acid levels, which makes Vitamin C for gout a good idea. In these studies the lowest amount required to do this was 500 mg daily. It's not hard to get 500 mg of Vitamin C naturally from foods and drinks.

It's a Pity that More Isn't Known about Strawberries for Gout

But all these hints and signs, and in the case of Vitamin C for gout, studies too, do suggest that a daily bowl of strawberries is a good idea for a gout diet, especially when combined with other natural remedies for gout.

There is One More Health Positive Fact about Strawberries

Their proanthocyanidin (abbreviated as PCO's or OPC's) levels are high, much higher than in cherries. Gout Attacks are basically interesting parts of our day-to-day life. It is only that sometimes, we are not aware of this fact!

<strong>A GOUT POSITIVE NUTRITIONAL PROFILE</strong> It is true that the nutritional profile of strawberries is positive for natural gout treatment. Probably the most important fact is their high Vitamin C content, around 59 mg per 100 grams of fruit. This puts them towards the top of the high-in-Vitamin C fruits' tables. Way above cherries. They are moderately alkaline, alkaline neutral or just mildly acidic so their effect on the body's pH amounts is not likely to be much, and may be mildly positive. They contain about 91% water, are low purine and moderate on the Glycemic Index. All these facts make them a good gout food. :roll:

The most quoted historical character who advocated strawberries for gout was the Swedish botanist Carl Linnaeus (1707- . He said that his strawberries-only diet had cured or alleviated his gout. Accounts vary as to what he precisely said, but there is no doubt that he thought strawberries were helpful, and in his time he was a famous and respected botanist. So he knew a lot about strawberries. But don't eat a strawberries-only diet. This is a crash diet and crash diets are now thought to probably increase gout attacks. You can easily get strawberries into a low purine gout diet. Or into a carbohydrate restricted diet, such as the Zone diet, because they are moderate on the Glycemic Index.

<strong>STRAWBERRY TESTIMONIALS</strong> If you're looking for a natural gout remedy, and which gout sufferer isn't, all this is very interesting, but are there any real world testimonials?
