Is There Any Connection Between Gout and Kidney DiseaseSome people with kidney disease patients always complicate that they are easy to be tortured by the gout, which is an intense pain in a joint, most often the big toe, but sometimes other joints,including knees, ankles, elbows, thumbs or fingers. There is a doubt: is there any connection between gout and kidney disease?

As we all know, our kidney is an important filtering organ which is responsible to discharge metabolic waste products and toxins from the body. In this way, kidney can guarantee our body health. However, for a person with kidney disease, the kidney is damaged by some factors and kidney fails to do its job. Actually, kidney disease can cause high uric acid in blood due to diminished filtration ability and this can lead to gout. In other words, the damaged kidney can not remove uric acid from the blood and when renal functions are impaired uric acid can not be removed and they will accumulate in the blood, resulting in high uric acid and lead to hyperuricemia and gout. In addition, when uric acid deposits in the joints, it will cause arthritis and joint pain; when uric acid deposits in the kidneys, it will cause stones in the urinary tract. Gout may also be common in patients with transplanted organs due to medications that are often needed like immunosuppressive agents.

Well then, how to deal with gout due to kidney disease?

Through the above analysis, we can see that the primary cause of gout is due to deposition of uric acids and kidney damage. Therefore, to relieve gout from the root, what we should do firstly is to repairing kidney damage and recover renal function so as to discharge extra uric acids in blood.

Diet therapy

Uric acid levels can become elevated by eating an excessive amount of purine-rich foods. Therefore, patients should avoid eating foods with high purine such as animal offals, broth, sardine, salmon and so on. In addition, limit protein intake, have more water intake and avoid alcoholic drinks, and have more fresh vegetables, fruits and alkaline foods are also essential.

Chinese medicine

Chinese medicine are effective because they can promote blood circulation so as to remove the deposited uric acid in the joints, kidneys and other organs, when these uric acid deposition is removed, the symptoms will be much relieved. Chinese medicines can also help improve kidney functions as so to promote renal function system. Uric acid and other wastes such as creatinine, blood ureanotrogen can be lowered. Also, gout can disappear accordingly.
