Excess Uric Acid


An earlier article I quoted examples of studies that have shown Vitamin C can reduce uric acid (UA) levels, the objective of all gout treatments whether by pharmaceuticals or natural remedies. The usual uric acid level target is 6mg/dL in men, slightly less in women. This is the level below which the trouble-causing MSU crystals, formed mainly from uric acid, may dissolve and thus alleviate or cure gout. However, there are no ironclad guarantees this will happen at that uric acid level.


Uric Acid is a Major Body Antioxidant and Antioxidants Quell Free Radicals

Excessive uric acid is produced because of free radical production. i.e the body deals with free radicals by creating excess uric acid. Therefore provide the body with more antioxidants so that it doesn't need to create excess uric acid. You may be filled with astonishment with the amount of information we have compile here on Uric Acid Level. that was our intention, to astonish you. Laughing

Fruits amount of vitamin C, if one whole fruit, or other amount, is the serving size: 1 papaya 188mg; 1 orange 70 mg; 1 red chili pepper 65 mg; and the juice from 1 orange 43 mg; 100 grams limes 29 mg. Our objective of this article on Foods Gout was to arouse your interest in it. Bring back the acquired knowledge of Foods Gout, and compare it with what are the purine bases here. Surprised.

A few words about strawberries Berries are excellent foods for a gout diet, principally because of their flavonoid anthocyanidins. (It is the anthocyanidins in cherries which are believed to have positive effects on lowering uric acid levels). These act as antioxidants thus boosting general health which is so important for gout sufferers. But among the anthocyanidin berries, strawberries stand out as the highest in Vitamin C.

red peppers 190mg; orange juice 124 mg; green peppers 120 mg; strawberries 106 mg; orange 96 mg; grapefruit juice 94 mg; kale 80 mg; broccoli 79mg; pineapple 74 mg; kiwi fruit 71 mg; lemon juice 61 mg; cantaloupe melon 59 mg; mango 57 mg; cauliflower 46 mg; red cabbage 40 mg; roasted chestnuts (European ) 37 mg; peas (frozen) 35 mg; raspberries 32 mg; lemon 31 mg; honeydew melon 31 mg; blackberries 30 mg; cabbage 26 mg; watermelon (one wedge ) 23 mg; tomatoes 23 mg. Since the potato is so popular, note one baked potato 202 grams size: 19 mg. Uric Acid Level proved to be the foundation for the writing of this page. We have used all facts and definitions of Uric Acid Level to produce worthwhile reading material for you.

Just Add Up from the Following List to Get 500 Mg Daily

Source figures are taken from the USDA's (United States Department of Agriculture) National Nutrient database release SR It is accessible online - search "National Nutrient database." There has been a gradual introduction to the world of Natural Remedies Gout projected in this article. We had done this so that the actual meaning of the article will sink within you.

But Do Not Follow a Strawberries Only Diet

This is a crash diet which is not a good idea since crash diets can trigger gout, and may worsen it. But if you suffer from gout strawberries are an excellent addition to your gout diet plan, because of their anthocyanidins, (the dominant one is pelargonidin), and their Vitamin C. Was it this combination that cured Linnaeus' gout? Perhaps it was. We were a bit tentative when embarking on this project on Gout Treatments. However, using the grit and determination we have, we have produced some fine reading material on Gout Treatments.

It's hard to summarise a daily diet for all the tastes of people who read this article. But the easiest (no cooking time) and probably the most popular way to reach 500 mg daily - drink plenty of orange juice. Or, putting it simply, and you've heard this before, eat these fruits and vegetables. Using the intuition I had gout foot treatment, I thought that writing this article would indeed be worth the trouble. Most of the relevant information on Gout Treatment has been included here.

It's Not Likely Vitamin C on Its Own Will Cure Gout

But it is helpful especially if combined with a low purine gout diet and other natural remedies for gout. An idle brain, is a devil's workshop they say. Using this ideology in mind, we ventured to write on Excess Uric Acid, so that something productive would be achieved of our minds.

And Here are a Couple of Surprises

Two spices or condiments that are high in vitamin C and not often mentioned: paprika 100 grams (71mg); prepared horseradish 100 grams (25mg). Writing something about Gout Remedies seemed to be something illogical in the beginning. However, with the progress of matter, it seemed logical. Matter just started pouring in, to give you this finished product.

Strawberries Should be Considered Very Carefully by Gout Sufferers

The Swedish botanist Carl Linnaeus (1707- stated that a diet of only strawberries had cured his gout. His linkage of vitamin C and gout gains extra weight from the fact that Linnaeus was a botanist. He probably knew a lot about strawberries. Smile



  • This is not the usually explained purine theory.
  • However it should be noted that not all gout sufferers have excessive uric acid in their bodies but most do.
  • If you have gout and excess uric acid, the important thing is to try to reduce it.
  • The convention wisdom is that vitamins are best obtained from natural sources,that is from fresh foods.
  • So how easy is it to eat or drink at least 500 mg of Vitamin C daily?
  • We had at first written a rough assignment on Gout.
  • Then after a few improvisions and enhancements here and there, we have ended up with this end product.
  • The most recent of these studies suggested that 500 mg of Vitamin C daily could bring about a uric acid level reduction of about 10%.
  • This is unlikely to be enough to bring UA levels down to the required target, but helpful.
  • This amount of Vitamin C is easily purchased as a dietary supplement.
  • Without question Vitamin C is the world's best known and most widely available vitamin.
  • It's also one of the cheapest.



To standardize and simplify this list Serving size is 1 cup unless stated; raw foods only (except peas); foods with added Vitamin C excluded; doesn't account for different varieties, country or region of origin; climate when produced and other variables; figures rounded to whole numbers. It is, if you like, the big picture. Vitamin C amounts are in mg.

Also referred to as "the disease of kings", the occurrence and development of gout are strongly determined by improper diet. In the past, the disease predominantly affected nobles and royalty, due to their access to an abundance of foods that are known today to have high risks of causing gout. These days, many people are still confronted with gout, as they consume foods that interfere in the normal activity of the body. Mostly people living in developed societies are the ones who tend to be affected by gout. The consumption of some exotic foods like seafood (oysters, caviar, calamari, sushi) or improper diets that contain a lot of meats (pork, poultry, beef) are the factors that seem to facilitate the occurrence and the development of the disease. Statistics indicate that people who live in less-developed countries have a smaller chance of developing gout. Also, research results reveal the preponderance of obese people among those who are suffering from different forms of gout.

Why curing gout does not require medication the foods that are considered to cause gout due to their high levels of purine with healthy, better tolerated foods. Foods that are rich in saturated fats should also be avoided. We would like you to leisurely go through this article on Uric Acid to get the real impact of the article. Uric Acid is a topic that has to be read clearly to be understood.


Should Avoid If You Have Increased Levels of Uric Acid in Your Blood





Gout is a type of rheumatoid arthritis that causes pain and inflammation of the joints. The joints of the lower body seem to be affected the most. People with gout experience discomfort, swelling, local irritation and redness, itching sensations, pain, sometimes feeling a sensation of cold around the affected areas, the skin in those regions often looking stretched. Gout can also affect skin and soft tissue such as muscles and tendons, making them less flexible. Gout is known to be caused mainly by the presence in excess of crystallized uric acid deposits inside the body, which are difficultly eliminated by the kidneys. Improper diet can lead to more accumulation of uric acid in the body, as some foods that contain high levels of purine are synthesized by the body into uric acid. There has been an uncalculatable amount of information added in this composition on Gout Treatment. Don't try counting it! Evil or Very Mad

The foods that are known to have high levels of purine are meats like pork, beef, lamb, poultry, organ meats (brain, kidneys, liver and heart), fish and seafood (sardines, mackerel, oysters, caviar, calamari and crabs) and fat dairy products such as cheese, milk and butter. Even some vegetables like spinach, beans and peas are known to conatin large amounts of purines. However, green vegetables are thought to have no malign effects to the body. Fruits not only have low levels of purines, (and they are strongly recommended in any gout diet) but they also contain vitamins and minerals that are vital in the proper functioning of the body. Vitamin C, contained by most fruits, is a powerful natural anti-oxidant which helps in easing the symptoms of gout. There is a lot of jargon connected with Gout. However, we have eliminated the difficult ones, and only used the ones understood by everyone.

Proper gout diet and a healthy lifestyle are the best means of preventing and easing the symptoms of gout. It is a fact that there is no specific cure for gout and the treatment often prescribed for the disease usually acts by controlling pain attacks and inflammation. There is little that medicines can do for the patients who suffer from gout, especially for those who have chronic forms of the disease. Proper gout diet can both ease the symptoms of gout and prevent injury and complications. It is known to be the best way of handling the effects of the disease. Evil or Very Mad

Gout is Another from of Arthritis, Which is Known to Case Sudden Attacks

The gout causes are known, but unfortunately this condition can not be cured. Treatments only help in reducing the severity of the gout symptoms and to prevent, as much as possible, further gout flares.

There are some lucky gout patients that only suffer from a gout attack once in their lives. However, for the majority of the gout patients, those flares will return. If you do not treat the gout attacks when they happen, as time passes by, they will become more and more severe and last even longer than the previous gout flares. We have used a mixture of seriousness and jokes in this composition on Information Gout. This is to liven the mood when reading about Information Gout.

This Particular Arthritis Type Manifests Itself Through Sudden, Painful Attacks

Gout attacks develop very quickly, in a few hours time, and can last as long as three to four days, if they are untreated. Severe pain, redness, inflammation and swollen joints are the main symptoms of a gout flare, that mostly affects the joint of the big toe. Other joints can be affected by a gout attack as well. Your hand, foot, ankle and knee joints can be affected by these gout flares. Embarassed

Because nothing is simple in medicine and life, irony strikes in gout case as well. There are people who american public university levels, but never actually have to deal with gout and there are others that have gout despite the fact that their levels of uric acid are normal. Surprised.

Diagnosing Gout is Not Very Complicated

If having any gout signs go see your doctor.He/ she will do a blood test to see what are your uric acid levels. If there is still doubt, some fluid is then taken from your joints and checked for crystals. Then, based on the results, you can be diagnosed with gout or not. Evil or Very Mad



  • Uric acid is highly tied to gout, because the excess of this acid in your blood is actually the cause of a gout.
  • Little crystals form as a result, they collect in the joints and cause pain and inflammation.
  • This is gout at the beginning.
  • The breakdown of chemicals called purines is what uric acid is made from.
  • These chemicals can be found in different foods and alcohol.
  • So if you suffer from gout or if you try to prevent a gout case from happening to you, try to avoid those things as much as possible.
  • Keeping to the point is very important when writing.
  • So we have to stuck to Prevent Gout, and have not wandered much from it to enhance understanding.
