Are you experiencing painful inflammation and stiffness in your finger joints? You might have deposits of uric acid crystals in your finger joints, one of the symptoms of gout.
Gout, according to National Institute of Arthritis and Musculoskeletal and Skin Diseases, is one of the most painful forms of arthritis. It occurs when too much uric acid builds up in the body. The buildup of uric acid can lead to:
*Sharp uric acid crystal deposits in joints, often in the big toe
*Deposits of uric acid (called tophi) that look like lumps under the skin
*Kidney stones from uric acid crystals in the kidneys.
For many people, the first attack of gout occurs in the big toe. Often, the attack wakes a person from sleep. The toe is very sore, red, warm, and swollen.
High levels of uric acid in the blood (Hyperuricemia) is the underlying cause of gout. This can occur for a number of reasons, including diet, genetic predisposition, or underexcretion of urate, the salts of uric acid.
Maintaining adequate fluid intake can prevent gout attacks and decreases the risk of kidney stone formation in people with gout. Also, reduce alcohol consumption could prevent gout attacks.
If you have gout, you can stay well-hydrated with this healthy drink I’ve found at EverydayRoots.
