These diseases can cause pain, stiffness, and swelling in joints and may also affect other parts of the body. Some common types of arthritis are osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, systemic lupus erythematosus, gout, juvenile rheumatoid arthritis, ankylosing spondylitis, and psoriatic arthritis. Idea


How many Amercians suffer from chronic symptoms of arthritis? 40 million! Are there several forms of arthritis? Yes, there are more than one hundred forms of arthritis and the causes of many are unclear. The two most common forums of arthritis are osteoarthritis (commonly referred to as simply arthritis) and rheumatoid arthritis. Gout is a less common form of the disease. Writing about Gout Trigger is an interesting writing assignment. There is no end to it, as there is so much to write about it!




  • Does arthritis affect more women than men?
  • Rhemathoid arthritis is two to three times more common in women than men.
  • Men, however, are at greater risk than women of developing gout.



When Does Arthritis Appear?

Rheumatoid arthritis -- one of the many forms of arthritis -- typically begins at 20 to 50 years of age, although it can develop in childhood. Keep your mind open to anything when reading about Arthritis Gout. Opinions may differ, but it is the base of Arthritis Gout that is important.

What Kind of Cause can Trigger Arthritis?

While genes appear to be a contributing factor to arthritis, there are other causes. Researchers believe that environmental agents -- a virus, or even stress, can trigger the disease in people who are genetically predisposed to it. Accept the way things are in life. Only then will you be able to accept these points on Gout Trigger. Gout Trigger can be considered to be part and parcel of life.

Finding a gout free diet may be simpler than you first think and it may surprise you to know that are a surprising number of additional benefits that can be had.

The worst offenders are red meats, offal, processed meats, some shellfish, yeast extracts, gravies and alcohol. All of these encourage uric acid production within the body. The more readers we get to this writing on Uric Acid, the more encouragement we get to produce similar, interesting facts about arthritis to read. So read on and pass it to your friends.

Although gout is can be a hereditary condition where the body fails to process uric acid efficiently, you can help your body regain its balance by minimizing external factors that raise uric acid levels. One of the main factors that you can control to alleviate gout is to reduce the levels of purine rich foods consumed. Reading is a habit that has to be cultivated from a small age. Only if one has the habit of reading can one acquire more knowledge on things like Lower Uric Acid.

When Purine is Ingested the Waste by-Product is Uric Acid

Purine is found in many of our foods and in all proteins to a greater or lesser degree. It would be hopeless trying to get people who are not interested in knowing more about Purine Rich Foods to read articles pertaining to it. Only people interested in Purine Rich Foods will enjoy this article. Shocked

When you are looking to implement a gout free diet you need to ensure that you avoid these trigger foods and substitute them for gout friendly foods such as, cereals, fruits, complex carbohydrates, rice, leafy green vegetables and low fat milk products. A lot of imagination is required in writing. People may think that writing on Uric Acid Kidneys is very easy; on the contrary, knowledge and imagination has to be merged to create an interesting composition. Embarassed


Interesting Facts about Ankylosing Spondylitis - Understanding





Uric acid is naturally produced by the body and is an antioxidant. During the metabolizing process it is dissolved in the blood stream and then excreted via the kidneys and intestines. However, too much can be a bad thing, leading to a situation within the body called hyperuricemia.



  • They found that elevated levels of uric acid meant that people were more likely to have below average scores on cognitive function tests.
  • So, not only can high uric acid levels lead to a painful gout attack, but can negatively effect your verbal and memory scores.
  • More reason to find a gout free diet that will help to lower uric acid levels.



Ensure that you are keeping your body sufficiently hydrated by drinking at minimum 6 - 8 eight ounce glasses of water. Dehydration will increase uric acid levels as without enough water uric acid will become more concentrated in the blood and the kidneys will struggle to expel it. By staying hydrated you will dilute the uric acid and the kidneys will have a easier time of the elimination process. There is sure to be a grin on your face once you get to read this article on Purine Rich Foods. This is because you are sure to realize that all this matter is so obvious, you wonder how come you never got to know about it! Idea

Having Excess Uric Acid in the Blood Stream Causes Gout

When it reaches saturation point, the uric acid crystallizes and deposits itself into the spaces between joints and the soft tissue that surrounds them. These crystals cause the arthritic symptoms - the red, swollen, hot and sore-to-touch joints that characterize gout and the symptoms can come on very suddenly.



  • Do you know what part of the body indicates the start of a gout attack?
  • If you said the big toe, you would be right.
  • Unfortunately, modern medical research still hasn't discovered the reason why over 75% of gout attacks occur in the big toe is first.
  • In addition, to the big toe other joints of the body may also signal a gout attack including the knee, ankle and elbow. Very Happy



What is the Cause of These Painful Crystals?

Here is a brief list of some of the top causes of the causes of these painful crystals, aka gout: We have used a mixture of seriousness and jokes in this composition on Gout Attack. This is to liven the mood when reading about Gout Attack.

Gout is Actually a Form of Arthritis

Gout pain is the result of the build up of uric acid in the body. Uric acid is a result of crystal-like formations that travel in the blood stream. These jagged crystals are the cause of the redness, swelling and pain that gout is infamously known for.

The benefit of the tart cherry is this little fruit is available is a variety of options including tart cherry juice, tart cherry capsules, dried cherries and the fresh fruit. Here is an brief overview of the different ways to fight gout with tart cherries:

One Food You Should Add to Your Diet is the Tart Cherry

This ruby red fruit has been proven to help dissolve the crystals in the joints. Based upon medical university research the antioxidants naturally found in the tart cherry, including Anthocyanins, flavonoids and over 17 other natural compounds actually help to reduce inflammation in the joints. Laughing

How to Fight Gout?

Fighting gout is not as hard as it appears to be when you really look at the pain and swelling caused by gout. The best way to fight gout is to make changes to your behaviour and eating habits like taking a walk after dinner to loss some of the calories you had at dinner. In addition, you also want to add specific foods that have been proven to help dissolve the jagged crystals in the joints. To err is human, to forgive is divine. So we would indeed deem you to be divine if you forgive us for any misunderstandings that may arise in this article on Gout Attacks.

What does pH stand for? Is it personal hygiene? Or proper health? Or possibly hydrated? Well no. It actually stands for the power of hydrogen. But without going deeper into biochemistry, gout sufferers just need to know that raising body pH levels makes the body more alkaline, and lowering them, more acidic. Embarassed

So a gout sufferer aiming for a natural gout cure is on a diet. He/she has to carefully consider everything eaten or drunk and maybe consider the pH of foods too. This is a very tall order. In effect they would be on two diets simultaneously. It was with great relief we ended writing gout causes, symptoms and natural treatment of gout. There was just too much information to write, that we were starting to lose hopes on it's completion!

"Miracle" foods for gout, such as cherries, celery and perhaps strawberries, (all have been reported to cure gout in some cases), will not work for everyone, probably only for a small minority. Neither will simple natural gout remedies such as avoiding alcohol, although this did work in one famous case in Japan.

You Reduce Your Uric Acid Levels to Below

0 mg/dL (men), slightly less in women, it is more likely that the troublesome MSU crystals will dissolve and a gout cure will be achieved. We have also translated parts of this composition into French and Spanish to facilitate easier understanding of Gout Cherries. In this way, more people will get to understand the composition.

Raising your body's pH levels is part of natural gout treatment. The theory is, supported by studies, that higher body pH levels (more alkaline) contribute to a reduction in uric acid levels because uric acid (diluted from drinking lots of water) becomes more soluble if the body is more alkaline. The higher the acid/alkaline ratio i.e. the higher the pH number on the pH scale, the more alkaline your body, and the more uric acid you should dissolve.

Record the time and value of all your pH measurements and ensure you follow the test strip manufacturer's usage instructions exactly. Don't overdo it. Just as a highly acidic body can suffer from acidosis, an over alkaline body can suffer from alkalosis, which causes muscle cramps and spasms among other problems.

  • So how do you use the pH potential of foods numbers? Firstly learn the extent to which a food or drink is acidic or is alkaline.
  • Any number above pH 7.0 is considered alkaline, and below pH 7.0 acidic.
  • Study for a while the pH tables you have downloaded and get a rough idea of the values of your most eaten foods.
  • For an easy, more exact reference, put up a pH foods chart, or printed downloaded lists, on your kitchen wall as a reminder.



USING Ph VALUES in DIET PLANNING

Most natural gout treatment involves a diet. Firstly, to reach your ideal weight if required, as it probably will be for most gout sufferers. Secondly, to assist the uric acid reduction process. The low purine gout diet, and any diet which has a positive effect on insulin resistance, are two useful diets in natural gout treatment. Dieting is hard work but most gout sufferers will not achieve a natural gout cure without diet.

The Ph SCALE

The pH scale ranges from 14 (most alkaline) down to 0 (most acidic). pH of 7 is neutral. It is a logarithmic scale. On this scale, as on pH test strips scales, passing kidney stones in men change (whether up or down) means a change of 10 times the previous number. So small number changes on this scale in fact mean very significant differences between the alkalinity and acidity of different foods. It was with keen interest that we got about to writing on Gout Remedies. Hope you read and appreciate it with equal interest. Laughing

Another route is via eating more alkaline foods and drinking alkaline beverages. There is a silence on food and beverage product nutrition labels. They do not show the pH values of the product, but foods and beverages have a pH value. Aiming high is our motto when writing about any topic. In this way, we tend to add whatever matter there is about Www Gout, rather than drop any topic.

ACHIEVING a MORE ALKALINE BODY

There are various ways to achieve a more alkaline body but probably the easiest is to drink alkaline (ionized) water which is water with excess oxygen in the form of OH-, not O It's described as being lively and much tastier than regular water, and you can cook with it. The manufacturers of a well known ionizer brand say food cooked with alkaline water is tastier.

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. We are satisfied with this end product on Purine Gout Diet. It was really worth the hard work and effort in writing so much on Purine Gout Diet.

Keep this natural gout treatment simple. Instead of two simultaneous diets, exclude some acidic foods especially if they are ones you consume a lot. But continue with your primary gout diet plan. Only exclude more acidic foods, if your body pH levels are not rising above pH 0 after testing with pH test strips for a considerable time and at different times of day. (The body's pH numbers change frequently. perhaps even minute by minute). Enhancing your vocabulary is our intention with the writing of this article on Gout. We have used new and interesting words to achieve this.

As well as pH 0 food labels, neither the excellent USDA National Nutrient database, nor most cookery books and articles list pH values of foods and beverages. And it's not the word off the lips of celebrity chefs. But you can find the pH of foods and drinks on the Internet. One good list is at ***** which can be downloaded.
