Gout Treatment And Solutions

Gout is where an excess of uric acid which, failing to exit the body through the urine, settles and crystallises around joints.

This leads to inflammation and swelling which causes pain. Its causes include:

  • Inheritance from family genetics
  • Excessive consumption of red meats or alcohol
  • Obesity/being overweight
  • Dehydration

Feet are particularly susceptible to this disorder, and it usually affects the joint near the big toe. People who experience this condition may encounter repeat episodes if it’s left untreated.

 

 

A podiatrist can organise medication or ice treatments to lessen the inflammation, or prescribe appropriate footwear to help gout-affected joints. They may also suggest lifestyle changes to reduce uric acid levels.
