The joints may become damaged or deformed. Gout is not life-threatening but it is important to seek treatment if you are taking heart or blood pressure medication. . People with kidney disease are often predisposed to gout. To prevent reoccurrence, it is a good idea to drink plenty of fluids, avoid alcohol and eat less protein-rich foods. Some people who have gout are overweight. When they lose weight, they reduce their risk of suffering from gout. beans. Gout mainly strikes middle-aged men, but occasionally occurs in younger men as well. Gout also afflicts middle-aged women, but that is much more rare. Gout frequently strikes the base of the big toe, but can also affect the small joints of the hands, knees, ankles, wrists or elbows. The first few gout attacks usually affect only one joint and last a few days. Symptoms slowly disappear, the joint goes back to normal and there is no sign of a problem until the next attack.

In most people, uric acid is dissolved in blood and goes through the kidney into the urine. In people with gout, this elimination doesn't occur completely. The body may produce too much unc acid on its own, or dietary intake may include too many foods high in- purines such as liver or St ;h-a.,fV- Mf rJ MIS f F P f "At tight" , 'At IiV"' (tt-n f tmccrfi) (m n. , NOV17 ISRM-X CHAM31.R OBUIIS1RA MV ) TUE I'lulippe fcntrcmonl, C'omiuttor k .Siimi.it V i 1) VVC 15 TORAPZF.
