  • In the study report, uric acid levels were expressed as mmol/l.
  • In this article I have converted these mmol/l numbers to mg/dL, which is a more frequently used measurement.






The study can be found online if you search "Beneficial effects of weight loss associated with moderate calorie/carbohydrate restriction, and increased proportional intake of protein and unsaturated fat on serum urate and lipoprotein levels in gout: a pilot study." Copy and paste this into a search engine search box and hit enter. We were furnished with so many points to include while writing about Excess Uric Acid that we were actually lost as to which to use and which to discard! Wink

This study, based on the Zone diet, did have a positive effect on markers of insulin resistance: triglycerides, total cholesterol, LDL cholesterol ("bad" cholesterol) fell. HDL cholesterol ("good" cholesterol) did not fall. But my purpose in this article is mainly to describe its direct effect on uric acid levels and gout attacks. The results of one reading this composition is a good understanding on the topic of Uric Acid Gout. So do go ahead and read this to learn more about Uric Acid Gout.

Were the study patients taking long term medications, such as Allopurinol, for their gout? They were not. They were only taking medications for gout attacks. The study report did not say how much water they drank. Most gout sufferers know that drinking lots of water helps to remove uric acid. In gout treatment there are always caveats. The study was small. Only 13 male gout sufferers. The study lasted just four months, although there were follow-up results after one year (median). The researchers noted a connection between weight loss and a fall in uric acid levels in another study and expected the nutrient proportions (40:30: contributed to the uric acid fall. They thought that the dietary measures caused the desired improvement in insulin sensitivity.

Note Especially that the Mean Uric Acid (UA) Fall Was

7mg/dL. In a couple of cases it fell by 2 mg/dL and by 5mg/dL respectively. Hyperuricemia, (excess uric acid), which may lead to gout, is reckoned to exist if the UA levels exceed 2 mg/dL (men), and 0 mg/dL (women). The usual UA target in gout treatment is 0 mg/dL (somewhat less in women) because at this level the MSU crystals, formed mainly from uric acid may dissolve. (It is the immune system's response to these crystals, which it regards as foreign bodies, which causes the pain and inflammation of gout). Wink


Uric Acid Urea can be Further Broken Down Into Uric Acid but this







  • AFTER ONE YEAR About a year later, five of nine patients had no more gout attacks and three had just one attack.
  • So there was a further decrease in attack frequency overall.
  • One patient gained weight after the end of the study.
  • He must have given up on the diet.
  • He suffered three attacks over three months.
  • His blood uric acid levels rose with his weight.



So a fall of 1.7 mg/dL, given these numbers, is quite significant, although you should note that many gout sufferers have UA levels much higher than 7.2 mg/dL, and some gout sufferers do not have excess uric acid. Evil or Very Mad

After four months on this diet the effects on uric acid levels and gout attacks were quite impressive. Weight loss and uric acid levels Weight loss over the period was almost 17lbs ( 7kg) i.e. at a rate of about 1lb a week. All but one of the patients lost weight. The median uric acid (UA) fall was 7mg/dL.Another very interesting finding was that a more elevated blood uric acid level at the start of the study, meant a large fall of blood uric acid by the end of it. Uric acid levels normalised in 7 of 12 patients who had raised levels of uric acid (UA) before the study. We have written a humorous anecdote on Gout Treatment to make it's reading more enjoyable and interesting to you. This way you learn there is a funny side to Gout Treatment too!

And gout attacks? Results overall were expressed as a median. Before the study, participants had at least two attacks in the preceding four months. Median monthly attacks before the study were After it, attacks fell to The fall in the number of gout attacks occurred in all except one patient. The exception participant had shorter and less severe attacks. Eight of the 13 did not have a gout attack during the four month study period, although as mentioned, they had all had at least two in the previous four months and, as noted above, the median was 1 a month, or one attack a fortnight, (every two weeks).

  • B>Osteoarthritis: Cause and Symptoms In our last article, we briefly discussed Osteoarthritis and Rheumatoid Arthritis.
  • This article will take a close look at the cause, symptoms, and current treatment used for Osteoarthritis.
  • So let's take a second look at what Osteoarthritis is. Idea



Osteoarthritis is Known by Many as "Wear and Tear" Arthritis

It is one of the most common forms of Arthritis and is the result of cartilage wearing away from the joints. This cartilage is responsible for the smooth gliding of joints, and once it begins to deteriorate, the patient is left with pain, joint swelling and inflammation, and even deformity. It was our decision to write so much on Gout after finding out that there is still so much to learn on Gout.



  • Osteoarthritis patients usually state that their pain is greatest during times of movement, and then lessens significantly during periods of rest.
  • Osteoarthritis affects many more women than men.
  • There is an estimated 24 million Osteoarthritis sufferers in the United States and roughly 74% are women. Idea



Joint Pain- this tends to be worse when rising in the morning ' Joint Swelling and Inflammation- this occurs during periods of activity ' Feeling a "Grinding" Sensation when a Joint is moved ' Loss of Mobility and Flexibility It may take some time to comprehend the matter on Gout that we have listed here. However, it is only through it's complete comprehension would you get the right picture of Gout.

One suggestion is that Osteoarthritis is a result of cartilage that has stopped functioning at optimum level. Cartilage is continuously undergoing a process where it is broken down, then rebuilt. Some theories state that this process becomes unbalanced and out of hand. This is referred to as "End Stage Osteoarthritis." It is at this stage that joint pain and impairment begin to manifest. There are many natural remedies that show promise in the management of Osteoarthritis pain and symptoms. Look for future articles in our Arthritis Series that will offer natural remedies that may prevent enzymes from damaging cartilage. We are proud to say we have dominican college in the say of Gout. This is because we have read vastly and extensively on Gout.

We've discussed the potential causes of Osteoarthritis, now it is time to look at the various symptoms of Osteoarthritis. The symptoms of Osteoarthritis include:


Some other ideas that point to the cause of Osteoarthritis include: ' Previous Sports related or Joint Injuries ' Genetically Inherited (it appears that Osteoarthritis runs in families) ' Repeated Occurrences of Bleeding into a Joint (as occurs with Hemophilia and other diseases) ' Repeated Occurrences of Gout and Gout like Diseases ' Avascular Necrosis- this is a condition where blood near a bone is cut off, this leads to bone death as well as joint damage. Avascular Necrosis typically afflicts the hip joint. ' Previous Rheumatoid Related Illness- such as Rheumatoid Arthritis can lead to chronic inflammation of the joints. ' Osteoporosis-due to the high risk of bone fractures and injury, Osteoarthritis may develop in joints. ' Metabolic Disorders- for example, Hemochromatosis can result in high levels of Iron being deposited in the joints ' Joint Infection-It is believed that cartilage may deteriorate in people who have defects in their cartilage and joints.

' Do your best to prevent injuring your bones and joints -try to avoid accidents such as sports related, implementing joint protection by using splints and braces. The development of Gout has been explained in detail in this article on Gout. Read it to find something interesting and surprising!

The Cause of Osteoarthritis is Not Known, Yet Doctors Have Many Suspicions

Some of the symptoms of Osteoarthritis boggle the minds of scientists and more research needs to take place to determine the actual root of the disease. For instance, X-rays can tell that Arthritis is present, yet the amount of pain reported by Osteoarthritis sufferers differs from the results of the X-ray. Though many people refer to Osteoarthritis as the "wear and tear" disease, evidence shows that this disease and its mysterious cause are not as simple as that definition. In fact, "wear and tear" does not take place in just one joint, but affects joints simultaneously throughout the body. An example of this, is that sufferers with Osteoarthritis of the knee, offer suffer Osteoarthritis in the hand. Also, doctors have noted that patients don't suffer with Osteoarthritis on just one side of the body (as would be expected due to wear and tear) but because it seems to affect the body concurrently, it appears that Osteoarthritis is a systematic disease affecting all of the cartilage at once.
