Gout Diabetes - Atkins Diet Yes or No

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.

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. This can be considered to be a valuable article on Gout Diabetes. It is because there is so much to learn about Gout Diabetes here. :shock:

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. Using great confidence in ourselves, we endeavored to write such a long article on Gout Diabetes. Such is the amount of matter found on Gout Diabetes. ;)


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.

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. The sources used for the information for this article on Gout Attack are all dependable ones. This is so that there be no confusion in the authenticity of the article. :evil:

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. :)

The second myth: The Atkins Diet is actually a 'Lo-Carb' diet, not a 'No-Carb' diet. What should be cut out are breads, rice and potatoes. Fresh fruits and vegetables should not be cut back and many should be somewhat increased. Finally, after the first month you can 'safely' add breads and potatos --- in limited quantities. One friend of mine eats 1 bite of breads/toasts, etc., served with his meals, such as garlic breads. One bite and not a morsel more.

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. It was with great relief we ended writing on Gout Attack. There was just too much information to write, that we were starting to lose hopes on it's completion!

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. We have also translated parts of this composition into French and Spanish to facilitate easier understanding of Gout Attack. In this way, more people will get to understand the composition.

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. :o.

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 help with 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. The completion of this article on Gout Attack was our prerogative since the past one month. However, we completed it within a matter of fifteen days!

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. It was with keen interest that we got about to writing on Gout. Hope you read and appreciate it with equal interest. :oops:

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.

What is the Natural Cures Gout Remedy?

It is naturally curing the gout symptoms by decreasing the uric acid between the joints and avoiding pain killers in the process. The problem has become that most people just take more pain killers and treat the pain. Not gout. If you are taking pain killers, you could be causing more damage and taking literally years off the life of the joint. :o.

5. Hydro Therapy- Flush your body naturally with 10-12 glasses of water per day. There are thousands of reasons to drink water and only water. But, we recommend you at least drink 10-12 glasses to flush potent uric acid levels which cause the pain between the joints.


Treating Gout from all Angles Before there were synthetic medications that could almost treat everything, there were holistic treatments that cured ailments by using the body. In the case of gout, people had to watch what they ate and also eat a variety of foods that naturally flushed uric acid levels. This article serves as a representative for the meaning of Gout Uric in the library of knowledge. Let it represent knowledge well.


Fruits and Vegetables- This almost has its own category because of its effectiveness (I know that fruits and vegetables have to deal with your diet). Studies have shown that fruits and veggies can sometimes cure gout because of their high vitamin, nutrient and antioxidant properties. We suggest cherries, celery, strawberries, avocados, blueberries and grapes. Go for 5 a day!

6. Kidney Cleanse- Have you had your annual kidney cleanse? When the body is processing large amounts of uric acid, it can often form uric kidney stones in the kidneys. A simple kidney cleanse can remedy the possibility of gout and uric kidney stones.

4. Herbal therapy- Whether it is because of the detoxifying properties, minerals, nutrients or neutralizing properties; herbs often work! Our customers have found success with some of the following herbs: alfalfa, bilberry, burdoch, block cohash, buchu, and cayenne pepper.

Here are the Various Angles You can Treat Gout Naturally

1. Your Diet- Possibly the greatest cause of gout and also the best way to treat and prevent gout. You should know what foods trigger gout attacks and what foods neutralize the flare-ups. Always choose foods low in purines. For a complete list please visit our Gout Remedy Report.

2. Vitamins- It has been shown that people who are deficient with vitamins A, B5 and E are extremely susceptible to gout symptoms and higher gout attacks. Are you taking a quality multi-vitamin? Are you taking the correct core vitamins that will normalize uric acid levels?

May 2008 the U.S

Based company developing Pegloticase made another upbeat statement assessment of what they have learnt in its Phase 3 and open label extension trials. Note that Pegloticase still awaits approval from medical authorities so I am writing here about a new gout drug that is still under development.


This suggests that progression of the disease may be contained in difficult-to-treat cases, and therefore may not cause other medical conditions such as kidney stones heart disease and hypertension. We were furnished with so many points to include while writing about Treat Gout that we were actually lost as to which to use and which to discard!

May Was a Good Month for Gout Sufferers

Febuxostat, (EU trade/brand name Adenuric), the first new major drug medication for gout in over 40 years, was approved for marketing in member countries of the European Union. The results of one reading this composition is a good understanding on the topic of Uric Acid Level. So do go ahead and read this to learn more about Uric Acid Level.

Has Been Having a Decent Degree of Success

<strong>Elimination of gout attacks </strong>In its most recent statement the developing company's most significant remark was that the extension trial group receiving Pegloticase every two weeks, there were only four gout attacks among those who had been administered Pegloticase (8 mg) every fortnight for two months, in subsequent months. And none in this group had a gout attack after five months of Pegloticase treatment, in following months. All were patients who had been through a phase 3 trial.

<strong>TRIAL SUCCESS WITH DIFFICULT TO TREAT GOUT PATIENTS </strong> Pegloticase is significant because its trials have focused on gout patients who have not had success with other gout drugs, or who have medical conditions which prohibit the use of them. Thus it has been tackling harder-to-treat gout cases, not the easier ones. Hard to treat cases are a significant percentage of the gout sufferer universe.


<strong>HOW PEGLOTICASE WORKS </strong> What makes Pegloticase a very interesting, and more importantly, a hopeful new gout drug, is the way it works. All drugs used in gout try to cure or alleviate the disease by reducing the body's uric acid (UA) levels. They do this by either inhibiting its production or making it easier to remove. We have written a humorous anecdote on Normal Uric Acid Levels to make it's reading more enjoyable and interesting to you. This way you learn there is a funny side to Normal Uric Acid Levels too!

Pegloticase's answer to the excess uric acid level problem is to remove it by ingeniously converting uric acid into something else, a substance called Allantoin. Allantoin is more soluble and better excreted than uric acid. The principle comes from the way most animals do it. They do it by converting UA to Allantoin, but this is something humans cannot do naturally. Hence the formulation of Pegloticase. Writing an article on Gout Drug was our foremost priority while thinking of a topic to write on. This is because Gout Drug are interesting parts of our lives, and are needed by us.

Pegloticase is getting closer to an application for approval by the U.S. FDA. Its developers hope to apply for a Biologics Licence Application in September 2008, and begin marketing it in 2009. Remember that it is very important to have a disciplined mode of writing when writing. This is because it is difficult to complete something started if there is no discipline in writing especially when writing on Kidney Stones.

Gout is Also Known as Crystal-Induced Arthritis

It is a medical condition that sets in when uric acid crystals collect on the joints. At the first stage, gout usually affects the large joints in the big toe. Gradually it can spread to other parts of the body, like the ankles, the instep, the heels and the knees, the wrists and fingers of the hand and the elbows. In severe cases, even the shoulders, hips or spine can be affected. Gout does not spread from one joint to the next. Uric acid is a metabolic end product that is formed at the time the body breaks down purines present in certain food items. In normal conditions, the uric acid gets dissolved in the blood and gets eliminated from the body through the kidneys into the urine. However, people having a propensity for gout have such high levels of uric acid in their blood that the acid precipitates out in the form of crystals. The crystals get accumulated on the joints and other tissues, leading to inflammation and excruciating pain. A chronic condition can lead to the formation of tophi lumps formed under the skin due to large deposits on severely affected joints of the elbow, fingers and toes, and even on the external pinna. :oops:

The Signs and Symptoms of Gout Include:

Hyperuricemia Presence of uric acid crystals in joint fluid More than one attack of acute arthritis 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 Pseudo Gout.

Arthritis that develops in 1 day Attack of arthritis in only one joint, usually the toe, ankle, or knee A painful joint that is swollen, red, and warm

The Probable Causes of Gout Include:

Genetic defects in metabolism resulting in hyper-production and retention of uric acid in the blood You may be inquisitive as to where we got the matter for writing this article on Gout Attacks. Of course through our general knowledge, and the Internet!

Kidney failure leading to hampered elimination of uric acid from the body Diuretic medications employed in the treatment of heart failure and diabetes. We have omitted irrelevant information from this composition on Cure Gout as we though that unnecessary information may make the reader bored of reading the composition.

Gout is also known as gouty arthritis and it' s cause is the accumulation of uric acid that then turns into crystals. These crystals are found in your joints. Gout is a very painful disease that mostly affects a single joint, usually your big toe. The gout patient usually suffers from this much pain because there are two pain sources: one is the crystals that are found in the joint ans if the affected area is somehow moved, pain is very big and the second reason why a gout case is so painful is because of inflammation. The tissues that surround your joint get inflamed and they hurt very much at the slightest touch. This is the reason why a gout case is so painful.

Gout attacks sometimes happen without a specific cause, but sometimes the actual causes of a gout attack are known. If a person is overweight, if a person eats meats that are high in purines , if they take medication, such as aspirin or diuretics and if they consume too much alcohol then these factors can cause an attack of gout. This can be considered to be a valuable article on Gout Attack. It is because there is so much to learn about Gout Attack here. :evil:

The main cause of gout is the level of uric acid that you have in your blood. However, there are also many exceptions. People who despite the high level of uric acid in his/ her blood never develop gout. It is a common belief that genes are also another gout cause. This disease is inherited. :oops:

Gout is One of the Most Old Arthritis Forms

Men are mainly affected by gout. Besides the fact that gout is more common in men than women, old studies confirmed by new ones prove that women, if they do develop gout, they only suffer from this disease if they have reached menopause. If a woman has not yet reached menopause, then the chances are she will not develop gout. Other studies on gout patients have shown that this condition mostly affects people who have good financial conditions. Furthermore, gout patients are said to be very intelligent. Some time ago gout was considered to be the wealthy' s disease, because they eating and drinking habits were believed to cause gout. However, recent studies have shown something different. Although rich foods and alcohol are related to gout, they can only cause a gout attack, but they are not the cause of gout.
