I find this page by accident. When I click the online consultation, a real doctor just appeared in the video. He answered all my questions and made a detailed analysis of my kidney problem.
I was diagnosed with stage 3 kidney disease at one years ago, and now my doctor tell me I have gouty nephropathy. I wonder that is there a connection between two kidney diseases?
Hello, friend. Thanks for your inquiry. I am very glad to help you.
Stage 3 CKD indicates that there is moderate drop on renal function. As we all know, our kidneys are in charge of removing wastes and toxins out of the body. However, for stage 3 kidney disease patients, their kidney lose this ability and a large amount of toxins will build up in the body. And usually, gout is a common complication in this stage kidney disease. Gout is also known as hyperuricemia, which is characterized with high uric acid levels in the body. Uric acid is produced as a result of purine bases which are broken down and converted into uric acid. Once uric acid is produced, it is carried with your blood circulation and passes through your kidneys. In normal conditions, most of it leaves your body when you urinate.
However, if high uric acid level can not control well, it will develops gout and can be a cause of kidney damage. For the kidney disease caused by high uric acid, we call it gouty nephropathy.
