Gout and arthritis can flare up suddenly.
But what causes these sudden flare-ups?
Many people immediately associate gout with red wine, and arthritis as a problem that only old people get.
First off – gout is actually a form of arthritis. And secondly, gout and other types of arthritis can all be caused by lifestyle factors.
That means they happen because of things we do – or do NOT do. Luckily, this means that it can also be managed by doing the opposite of these things.
So, let us look as what causes gout and arthritis to flare up…
High Uric Acid Levels
Uric acid is produced in the body when chemicals called purines metabolize. While normal levels of uric acid are not harmful, high levels can lead to health problems such as kidney stones and gout.
Gout, which is a type of arthritis, occurs when uric acid crystallizes and is deposited into joints, most commonly the big toe, causing arthritic symptoms.
Uric acid levels can become too high for many reasons, including the ingestion of purine-rich foods, overproduction of uric acid in the body and the inability to properly eliminate it.
Purines are natural substances in the cells that, when broken down, become uric acid. In small amounts, purines act as antioxidants in the body and help protect it from damage, but they can become harmful when large amounts are ingested but are not eliminated.
Most foods contain some purines, but some specific foods contain high amounts. Certain seafood, such as anchovies, mackerel, mussels, roe, sardines, scallops and shrimp are particularly high in purines. Meats can be high in purines as well, especially goose, partridge, liver, kidneys, and heart.
Meat products such as gravy and bouillon are also high in purines. Other foods containing high purine levels include asparagus, dried legumes, sweetbreads, yeast extracts, and beer.
Beer and other alcohols, such as whiskey and gin, should be avoided because of their high purine levels. Alcohol decreases the amount of uric acid the kidneys release into the urine. When this happens, more uric acid is left in the body to cause problems such as gout. Certain drugs, such as diuretics, also decrease the amount of uric acid the kidneys release, which raises the amount of uric acid overall.
Other drugs that can increase uric acid levels include aspirin, niacin, chemotherapy drugs, and immune-suppressing drugs.
Frequent dehydration also decreases the amount of uric acid released through the urine.
The body can also produce high levels of uric acid on its own, generally due to rapid weight loss. Certain genetic disorders also cause increased production of uric acid.
Other possible causes of high uric acid levels include lead poisoning, hypothyroidism, high blood pressure, chronic kidney disease, recent surgery, and psoriasis.
