Causes of Gout

While the symptoms of gout appear to happen overnight, the ongoing process leading up to a painful attack of gouty arthritis comes on over a process of many months or years. The most basic cause of gout is an elevation of uric acid in the body (hyperuricemia). This is brought on by eating a diet high in purines (red meat is an example) or by failing to excrete uric acid to an adequate degree by the kidneys.
Uric acid is a breakdown product of purines. Purines are made by cells of the body and are taken in as part of the diet. Under normal conditions, the uric acid breakdown product is sent from the cells of the body to the kidneys, where it is excreted. The sufferer of gout tends to make more purines or eat more purines in the diet or fails to excrete it due to kidney disease.
The main causes of gout include the following: -Eating high purine-containing foods -Being obese -Drinking too much alcohol, particularly beer -Living a sedentary lifestyle Triggers of Gout Hyperuricemia alone does not trigger gout. There often is another trigger in the individual's life that brings on the onset of a painful arthritic joint. There are medical triggers for gout. These include the following: -Taking diuretic medications that concentrate the uric acid in the blood. Diuretics are used to treat high blood pressure, heart failure, or swelling of the legs. -Infections occurring in the body, not necessarily in the joints of the body. -The onset of a severe illness anywhere in the body. -Injury to a specific joint that responds by precipitating uric acid crystals into the joint space. -Being on chemotherapy drugs. -Starting a medication that is supposed to reduce the uric acid in the blood. -Taking cyclosporine for various reasons. Some of the lifestyle factors that trigger gout include the following: -Consumption of sugary beverages, such as sodas -Dehydration through not taking in fluids or losing fluids through diarrhea or diuretics -Taking on a crash diet or fasting -Eating high purine foods, such as shellfish and red meats -Drinking excessive amounts of alcohol, particularly beer
It is important to remember that these triggers lead to hyperuricemia, which may or may not result in gouty arthritis. Not all cases of hyperuricemia will be symptomatic and will lead to joint pain. This is why the absolute value of the uric acid is not a good diagnostic test for gouty arthritis as the elevation in uric acid may not be the cause of a given case of arthritis and gouty arthritis may be present with normal uric acid levels.
