Gout´s a crippling illness on the
rise but still a joke to many

Daily Mail [UK], by Harry Hodges

Original Article

Posted By:Attercliffe, 7/25/2014 6:43:58 AM

Gout is almost unique in being a serious and debilitating condition still capable of raising sniggers of laughter and sneering derision towards those who suffer from it. It is commonly thought of as a historical anomaly, a disease rarely seen since the last portly Victorian gentleman died out, long ago banished from these shores by advances in diet and medicine. [Snip] Gout is a type of arthritis in which crystals form inside and around a joint, typically in the big toe. These crystals begin to form when there is too much uric acid--a waste product naturally produced by the body--in

There are medications now to somewhat control it, but my husband still has to be careful about too much shellfish or beef.

Gout does hurt but not nearly as bad as the definition of pain in this article. Best thing for gout - fresh cherries. Really.

#3, Indeed it can and does. Even the weight of a cotton bed sheet is too much to bear sometimes. Mr A hates using a cane but he´ll borrow one of mine when he has an attack, says it´s like "broken glass in the joints," and often worse than other types of joint pain. True, cherries are a good "supplement" to help stave off an attack but don´t always suffice.

My husband, when an attack does come along, winds up on crutches and he can´t cover his footknee with a sheet either. This can show up in other joints besides the toe. His area is the knee, rarely the foot. Don´t let anyone fool you about the pain. It´s bad. He has been on 2 medications for years. One daily and a second one when an attack begins. Takes forever for his attacks to go away. Thank goodness they don´t happen often.

#6, tart cherry juice is more quickly effective. Go to any health food website and see the data. I get ours from Brownwood Acres. It freezes well.

There is no short term cure. But include in your lifestyle (a) 64 ounces of water a day (b) at least 30 minutes of being horizontal (not necessary to sleep) during the day. That will do the trick.

#6, you can buy concentrated black cherry juice, Unsweetened, even at regular grocery stores, but health food stores always have it.

However, if the uric acid level stays elevated, allopurinol WILL do the trick, almost always.

Allopurinol is both cheap and effective when taken regularly to prevent gout attacks. My husband has used it for four decades, and the gout only returns when he decides to quit taking it for a while.

My son-in-law is on that, and if he skips 2 days, he has an attack. He is overweight but doesn´t do much to lose, also ends up on crutches at least once a year. He´s only 36 and I worry about his kidneys. It´s a terrible disease. No family history.

How painful is gout?

Painful enough that when I had attacks before it was controlled with medication, I could look at the afflicted appendage and think "do I really need that toe?"

The first time I experienced a gout attack, I wondered aloud to my doctor where it came from, as I knew of no one else in my family who had trouble with it. The doc asked if anyone in my family had kidney stones and I said yes - my grandfather, my father, an uncle and two of my brothers. He said "it´s all the same." If I have a choice, I´ll take gout over kidney stones any day!

Try celery. Works for me. Cherries, don´t. BTW it´s supposed to be "tart" cherries only, and now they´re saying fructose in any fruit is bad, cuts down ability of body to clear uric acid.

A full attack can hurt like one sumbitch, is all I can say, even even a light attack can move into those obscure joints in the middle of your foot - and put you on crutches, or worse.

I seem to be getting more sensitive to dietary violations with age, and please note (as I didn´t!) that virtually any fresh fish is bad, as herring is bad, and I mean check the charts you can google, these are REALLY bad!

I can eat a few burgers a week, tacos with beans, no problem. A few trout dinners over a month put me over the line, I rechecked the charts with my foot exploding, and felt that stupid. I knew CANNED salmon is not so bad and had a fresh salmon lunch - wrong! Fresh it´s as bad as the others, dang it.

Live and learn. Ouch.

I had major surgery 1 1/2 yrs. ago. While in rehab 1 week later I had my 1st gout attack. 2 drs. Felt as though the surgery triggered it. They said surgery disturbs your whole body chemistry & can trigger a gout attack. I take 2 Allopurinal daily.

My experience:

Drink lots of water as dehydration is usually present. Diarrhea or a night out with adult beverages can trigger it.

At the first "hint" of joint discomfort (it doesn´t hurt much at first) take three Naproxen Sodium (i.e. Aleve) liquid gel capsules. After eight hours begin a regimen of one capsule every eight hours until discomfort goes away.

If caught early enough the above will work. Otherwise it will turn into a two week nightmare.

And an 87-year-old billionaire from Spain might argue she has the strongest claim. For the Duchess of Alba is said to be one of two main contenders from the Stuart dynasty, whose Scottish monarchs transformed the country during their time in power. While First Minister Alex Salmond insists Queen Elizabeth II would remain as head of state after a Yes vote, others are not so sure. Some Scots look back fondly in the history books to their Stuart kings, the first of whom was Robert II in 1371. By the 17th century, they ruled all of England, Wales, Ireland and Scotland.

Figures released by the Office for National Statistics revealed 2.02 million people were jobless between April and June--a fall of 468,000 on the same period in 2013. There are now 30.61 million people in work, 74,000 more than in February to April this year. The number of people claiming Jobseeker’s Allowance has also fallen with fewer than a million receiving the benefit last month--the lowest level for six years. The Prime Minister, speaking on a visit to Weir Minerals Europe, a factory near Fleet in Hampshire, described the fall in people claiming unemployment benefit as “really remarkable”.

I´ve been saying it for weeks--you can´t defeat Isil without putting boots on the ground. And now US General Martin Dempsey, the head of the American Armed Forces, has confirmed what anyone with a reasonable understanding of what is required to defeat Isil knows, that some form of Western ground forces will be needed if this threat is to be fully destroyed.

A British man spouts nonsense in front of a camera, does something incredibly stupid, becomes an internet video hit.

Whether you want to or not, you can’t avoid the images of the beheadings of US journalists and UK aid workers in the last couple of weeks. The murderer, “Jihadi John”, as we’ve taken to calling him, is doubtless pleased with his notoriety, with the fact he´s graced the front pages of newspapers back in the UK.

Judging by facial expression and body language alone, I would guess that Alex Salmond´s private polling is telling him that he has lost. And if there is a "No" victory is by a small-ish margin, that will be the best possible outcome for him personally. As he says himself, this decision will be forever. There will be no repetition (mercifully) of this ugly experiment in mob initimidation and bare-faced lying.

A British man convicted and jailed for Islamic terrorism in 1999 has, in a lengthy and indulgent feature with Sky News, blamed violent computer games for “dehumanised” young Britons going abroad to fight for the Islamic state.

First Lady Michelle Obama has made healthy eating and exercise her signature issue. But, a recent study published by the Sage Journal found that her “elitist” advice actually “shames poor and middle class mothers.” The College Fix added that the study found that Michelle Obama’s healthy eating program is also sexist. It’s also sexist, the study’s authors suggest, noting that “intentionally or not, it places the burden of a healthy home-cooked meal on women.” Sage Journals published the study by North Carolina researchers Sarah Bowen, Sinikka Elliott and Joslyn Brenton.

Washington - The current threat posed by the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria, or ISIS, will test not only the resolve and strategic judgment of America and its allies, but also our nation’s fidelity to a basic constitutional principle. Our Constitution reserves to Congress the power to declare war and designates our president as the commander in chief, but our recent history has been characterized by executive overreach and legislative abdication in the initiation of military action. The current crisis gives us an opportunity to restore the proper balance between the branches. America’s history since 2001 should compel us to fix the way

Bill Clinton never inhaled. Rush Limbaugh says he never smoked it. Marco Rubio won´t answer whether he ever did smoke pot but Sarah Palin admitted she smoked it in her youth and didn´t like it. Those pushing to have more states legalize marijuana consider this drug rather harmless, medically beneficial and liberal politicians consider this issue one that will attract voters. I don´t blame Rubio for not discussing whether he indulged n his youth or not. He is a public official with young children and carries a different responsibility than the rest of us. My own experience with marijuana was somewhat similar
