Gout is a type of arthritis, and you obviously are not going to argue that arthritis is a serious disease. One of the first symptoms of gout is the inflammation of the ‘’bone’’ at the base of the big toe. The disease evolves, and the inflammatory process affects other joints: knees, ankles and joints of the hands. In addition, these patients may experience high blood pressure and coronary heart disease. That is why this disease is so dangerous. One of the main reasons for its development is the high level of uric acid in the blood. The goal of treatment is to achieve its reduction through diet and medication. By the way, if you download the book “Gout Code” by Lewis Parker, you will get access to a unique method of treatment of this dangerous disease. Make sure you read this e-book if you suffer from gout! A uric acid blood test determines how much uric acid is in your blood, and therefore, helps diagnose gout.
A high blood uric acid level causes joint pain. The “bone” of the big toe is inflamed first, and after a while the pain subsides. Then it starts all over again: you may get knee or elbow pain, etc. If the patient with this diagnosis observes the symptoms regarding the cardiovascular system – high blood pressure or angina –, it means that the disease progresses. In this situation, treatment is necessary. Most likely, you will be prescribed a course of treatment that lowers the level of uric acid in the blood. However, I recommend following the treatment that the manual Gout Code offers. After all, treatment for another treatment leads to strife. ‘’Sore upon sore is not salve’’, says the proverb. Do not be afraid to treat gout without changing your lifestyle. The first thing you need to do is to pay attention to the food you eat. You will have to say ‘’no’’ to red meat, meat products and alcohol. Do not worry: you will not have to switch to vegetarianism: you can still eat white meat (chicken and turkey). I wish you a speedy recovery!
