Lumps In The Legs In Gout Sufferers?
The question is can the lump be broken? My mother had to break it down, but what came out was a thick, thick, clear white slime, but after a while, how come there was a lump of meat?
Hello, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com
Gout or gout arthritis is a disease that generally attacks the body's joints caused by high uric acid rust in the blood. Under normal circumstances, uric acid can be excreted by the body in the urine, but in certain conditions it produces more uric acid or is associated with unhealthy food intake. Not all sufferers of high uric acid levels experience symptoms of gout, only 1 in 3 who experience symptoms of gout.
If you do not get proper and appropriate treatment, uric acid can accumulate in the blood and accumulate under the skin to form tophi or lumps in the joints due to uric acid which can be hard or filled with white fluid such as toothpaste that causes pain. If you do not get treatment, in the long run, the buildup of uric acid can cause damage to the joints and kidney stones if there is a buildup in the kidneys.
To help maintain uric acid levels:
Limit your intake of high purine foods, such as red meat, animal innards, anchovies, sardines, tuna, shellfish
Do not consume alcohol
Does not solve a lump in the joint
Perform routine control with a doctor
Perform routine checks and controls with the nearest GP to help you control your uric acid levels
So much information from me, hopefully it helps
