Gout is a different type of arthritis that causes forming the small crystals in the joints. As a result, pain and swelling are attacked.
The accumulation of urate crystals in the joints can be seemed as the main cause of gouty arthritis. It causes some characterized symptoms of gout as inflammation. What causes the urate crystals is the uric acid levels in blood. When the body breaks down purines (the substances found naturally in body, as well as in some certain foods like beef, organ meats,,,), uric acid is formed and transported to the kidneys by dissolving in the blood and eliminated in urine. However, some people either uric acid overproduction or they produce a normal number, but their kidneys are unable to process it effectively, and an excess of uric acid buildup, which can develop gout.
Over time, the level may become too high crystal grit as small and uric acid can form. The crystals are usually collected in part. The crystals stimulate the tissues in the joints, causing inflammation, swelling and pain – an attack of gout. Significant notice is that some people have a high level of uric acid without forming crystals or gout. However, as a rule, the higher the level of uric acid is, the greater the chance of developing gouty arthritis arrived.
Gout affects men more often than women. The average age of gouty arthritis patients is in middle ages, however, it does not mean that young people are not at risk of. In some cases, it could be genetic make-up that makes a less excreter uric acid (urate).
