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.

Sweden to become first European
country to recognize ´Palestine´
Reuters, by Staff    Original Article
Posted By: Attercliffe- 10/4/2014 12:51:12 PM     Post Reply
STOCKHOLM - Sweden´s new center-left government will recognize the state of Palestine in a move that will make it the first major European country to take the step, Prime Minister Stefan Lofven said on Friday. The UN General Assembly approved the de facto recognition of the sovereign state of Palestine in 2012 but the European Union and most EU countries, have yet to give official recognition. "The conflict between Israel and Palestine can only be solved with a two-state solution, negotiated in accordance with international law," Lofven said during his inaugural address in parliament.

Norway’s ruling Conservative Party has voted to withdraw their country’s bid from hosting the 2022 Olympics and providing financial guarantees, evaluating the games to be too costly. Prime Minister Erna Solberg commented, “We have received sound advice and there is no reason not to follow it. A project this magnitude, and at this expense requires broad popular support, of which there is not enough,” cited Norway’s daily English language newspaper, The Local. “We have other things we need to spend this money on.

Jeremy Clarkson has told how he and his Top Gear team were forced to flee Argentina under police escort as furious thugs tried to ´kill´ them. Rock-throwing protesters vowed to ´barbecue´ the controversial motoring show host after a row over the star´s number plate boiled over. Trouble erupted after a photo of Clarkson, 54, driving a Porsche with the number plate H982 FKL, circulated online, enraging Falklands War veterans who claimed it referred to the 1982 conflict. The presenter yesterday said the violent protest was ´state-organised´ accusing the Argentinians of taking advantage of their visit for ´political capital´.

I’m always sceptical when I hear scare-mongering claims about diseases. From bird flu to SARS, we’re repeatedly told it’s going to be the new Plague that will wipe everyone out and then…it doesn’t. Probably because the scare-mongering itself makes people take it seriously enough to prevent it spreading. But there is something very sinister and frightening about this Ebola outbreak, which has so far infected 7,100 and killed 3,300. [Snip] It’s hard to think of a more cack-handed, dangerously inept response than what transpired in Dallas. Consider what we now know: Thomas Eric Duncan, a 42-year-old Liberian citizen, had been

Health experts assembled by the White House conceded on Friday that a second case of Ebola could be identified in the U.S. But they defiantly insisted that the epidemic plaguing western Africa will not rise to the level of a major American outbreak.

It is the stuff that nightmares are made of, and day by day it is getting worse. The Ebola epidemic, says Dr Margaret Chan, director-general of the World Health Organisation (WHO), is now “the greatest peacetime challenge” since the Second World War. Yet her own organisation’s tardiness, partly caused by cuts, together with reductions in--and misuse of--funds elsewhere, are largely responsible for Ebola spiralling out of control.

It has been precisely a month since corpulent young dictator Kim Jong Un disappeared from public view, prompting frenzied speculation about his health and the state of political play in North Korea. Kim was last seen at a Sept. 3 concert, ensconced in a red easy chair next to his wife, Ri Sol Ju. Late last month, the youthful marshal was a no-show at a meeting of North Korea’s rubber-stamp legislature. The cloistered nation’s state-run TV aired images of his seat at parliament—empty. But North Korea experts say that the likeliest reason is also the simplest: That the Supreme Leader

Three US citizens are fighting in Syria, the British Daily Mail reports Friday. But unlike most foreign nationals, they are fighting against - not for - jihadists. One of the Americans has been identified as Jordan Matson (28) from Racine, Wisconsin, a spokesman for the private Pashmerga army, the Kurdish People´s Protection Units (YPG), said Thursday. Matson is a former US Army soldier now "fighting in the Jazaa area," the spokesman added - an area riddled by heavy fighting between Islamic State (ISIS) and Kurdish forces in northeast Syria. The US has not blacklisted the YPG as a terrorist organization, but it does

Deadly, irrational, and determined, the intruder snuck across a weakened perimeter. Eluding capture, the intruder was detained only after missteps and close calls. The spin began soon after the threat was isolated. Information was selectively leaked. Half-truths and untruths were uttered. Responsibility was avoided; privileges and credentials asserted; authority reasserted. Trust us. Remain calm. Don’t panic. This is the template of recent events.
