What is gout?
Gout is characterized by inflamed, painful joints due to the formation of crystal deposits at the joints. It also known as the disease of kings and the king of diseases because it was associated with overindulgence of rich foods and wine. In truth, anyone can get gout. Gout affects more men than women and is often associated with obesity, hypertension (high blood pressure), hyperlipidemia (high levels of lipids in the blood), and diabetes.
This condition is a form of inflammatory arthritis that results in painful attacks in the joints. It can cause swelling and redness, and in some cases, it can lead to lumpy deposits that can be seen under the skin. It can also lead to the development of kidney stones.
What causes gout?
Gout is caused by monosodium urate crystal deposits in the joints, due to an excess of uric acid in the body. The excess of uric acid may be caused by an increase in production by the body, underelimination of the uric acid by the kidneys, or increased intake of certain foods that metabolize into uric acid in the body. Foods that are high in purines (the component of the food that metabolizes into uric acid) include certain meats, such as game meats, kidney, brains, and liver; seafood, such as anchovies, herring, scallops, sardines, and mackerel; dried beans, and dried peas. Alcoholic beverages and sugary drinks high in fructose may also increase levels of uric acid in the body. Gout attacks may be triggered by any or all of the following:
Consumption of alcohol
Consumption of protein-rich foods
What are the symptoms of gout?
Gout is characterized by sudden, recurrent attacks that often occur without warning. Severe, chronic gout may lead to deformity. The following are the most common symptoms of gout. However each individual may experience symptoms differently. Symptoms may include:
Severe, sudden pain in one or more joints (most often the joint in the big toe)
Red or purplish, tight, shiny skin over joint
Warmth in joint area
General feeling of illness
Hard lumps of urate crystal deposits under the skin (called tophi)
The symptoms of gout may resemble other medical conditions or problems. Always consult your doctor for a diagnosis.
How is gout diagnosed?
In addition to a complete medical history and a physical examination, a diagnosis of gout may be confirmed with the examination of a fluid sample from the joint for the presence of urate crystals.
Treatment for gout
Specific treatment for gout will be determined by your doctor based on:
Your age, overall health, and medical history
Extent of the condition
Your tolerance for specific medications, procedures, and therapies
Expectation for the course of the condition
Your opinion or preference

Nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory medications to relieve pain and inflammation
Colchicine, an oral or intravenous medication to relieve pain and inflammation; may cause diarrhea and other side effects
Corticosteroids to reduce inflammation
Increasing fluid intake while avoiding alcoholic beverages
Reducing the intake of protein-rich foods
Reducing weight (if obesity is a factor)
Medication to lower the uric acid level in the blood
Medication to block production of uric acid in the body
Surgery to remove extremely large tophi
While rheumatoid arthritis may begin at any age, it most commonly affects people between the ages of 20 and 40. The cause of rheumatoid arthritis is not known. Some researchers say it is caused by infection.Heredity is definitely a factor. There is some agreement among researchers that the body’s immune system is somehow involved in the development of rheumatoid arthritis. Researchers believe that there is foreign substance that may contribute to the development to rheumatoid arthritis, but they haven’t isolated it yet. Inflammation induced by this foreign substances is thought to be responsible for the joint pain, swelling and destruction so commonly seen inpatients with the disease.
HOW IS RHEUMATOID ARTHRITIS DIAGNOSED?
If this disease is suspected, your physician will find several laboratory tests helpful in addition to a complete physical examination, a health history, and X-rays. A test called the erythrocyte sedimentation rate (ESR) will indicate the presence of any inflammation in your body. You need only have a small blood sample drawn; then the depth that the red blood cells sink in a tube in one hour is recorded. Another test done with your blood sample helps determine the presence of rheumatoid factor, an abnormal antibody present in most people who have rheumatoid arthritis. In normal conditions the presence of abnormal antibody is nil. While rheumatoid factor may be present in people without rheumatoid arthritis, if symptoms of arthritis are present, the additional information regarding rheumatoid factor will be a useful diagnostic tool for your physician.
HOW IS RHEUMATOID ARTHRITIS TREATED?
Most PHYSIOS take a conservative approach to treating rheumatoid arthritis because they believe such management offers the best long-term results. The goals of therapy are reduction of inflammation and pain,preservation of function, and prevention of deformity.Therapeutic programmes for people with rheumatoid arthritis are individually designed, depending on the extent of the disease and organs involved. If you have rheumatoid arthritis, your treatment may include a mix of exercise and rest; use of heat, cold, or both; anti-inflammatory and remission-inducing drugs; possibly surgical repair, and in some cases use of special braces or other supports.Treatment for rheumatoid arthritis is usually developed by a team health care professionals who work together to create the best possible programme for your care. Physical therapists, occupational therapists,rehabilitation specialists, and social workers will co-operate with your physician in planning and carrying out your treatment programme. Family members may become involved because love and emotional support can help relieve stress; and practical support, such as in doing household chores, may be required to maintain the family’s normal routine.
