Younger Gout Patients, Key to Prevention and Treatment: Shut Up


In recent years, there have been more and more people suffering from gout. Li Ling, Director and Chief Physician of the Rheumatology and Immunology Department and Infection Department of Tianjin People's Hospital, pointed out that gouty arthritis is a common rheumatic disease, which is more common in males and tends to affect a younger population. Gout is mainly directly related to hyperuricemia caused by excessive uric acid production or reduced uric acid excretion in purine metabolism. In addition to joint damage, gout patients can also be accompanied by kidney disease and other metabolic syndrome manifestations, such as hypertension, hyperlipidemia, diabetes, coronary heart disease, etc. The treatment of gout includes both non pharmacological and pharmacological treatments. For drug treatment, clinical doctors will choose the timing of using uric acid lowering drugs based on the patient's condition and determine the standard value of blood uric acid, gradually and persistently controlling blood uric acid levels. For patients with acute gout attacks, choose appropriate anti-inflammatory and analgesic drugs. Non drug therapy is crucial for controlling the condition. Firstly, patients need to adjust their lifestyle, control their diet, reduce alcohol consumption, exercise appropriately, and obese individuals need to lose weight. Secondly, it is necessary to control the incidence and risk factors associated with gout, such as hyperlipidemia, hypertension, hyperglycemia, and smoking. In terms of diet, animal foods with high purine content should be restricted, such as animal viscera, shellfish and sardine. In addition to alcohol, beverages containing fructose syrup should also be restricted from consumption. The general population should also have a healthy diet, exercise moderately, reduce smoking and alcohol to prevent the occurrence of gouty arthritis. (New News Agency)
