Did you know that a Gout is a form of arthritis and kidney disease? Many of us do not recognize the body inflammation causing Gout until it is too late. Most people believe that Gout happens in the metatarsal joint of the big toe, but gout flare can occur in any body joint.


What is Gout?

Gout is caused when there is too much uric acid in the body. The body makes uric acid when breaking down purines. Purine is a chemical compound found in food such as organ meats, game meats, some types of fish, fruit juice, sugary sodas, and alcohol; when broken down in the body, it forms uric acid that passes into the urine. Gout does not appear overnight; it can take years before uric acid crystals build up in joints.

Uric acid is a natural waste product in the blood that filters through the kidneys and urine. Urate crystals can form when uric acid does not flush out entirely of the kidney. Instead of flushing uric acid out through the urine, the uric acid accumulates in the skin over time, forming small round nodules called tophi. As urate crystals pass through the kidneys, these crystals can cause scarring and damage to the kidney lining. These crystals can lead to kidney disease and failure over time if gout is left untreated.

Uric acid is sensitive to temperature changes and turns into crystals when deposited in the coolest body parts furthest from the heart, like your feet. 


Gout and Kidney Disease

One out of 10 people with chronic kidney disease have gout, but all people with gout have kidney disease. Most people with early-stage kidney disease do not know they have it. Gout is a warning sign of kidney disease. If you have Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD), the kidneys cannot filter wastes out of the body.
