Hello good afternoon Cindy.
Complaints of knee pain can be caused by several conditions, including:
gout arthritis, i.e. joint inflammation due to increased uric acid Osteoarthritis, namely joint loss with a history of previous injuries resulting in disorders of the tendons (tissues that connect muscles to bones) and ligaments (tissues that connect bones to bones) infection of the sensi (septic arthritis) etc. Your mother's uric acid level (6.15 mg/dL) has exceeded the normal limit, so the possibility of joint pain due to high uric acid can be considered. However, it is not impossible if in addition to the uric acid, the complaints experienced by your mother are also caused by other causes that have been mentioned above. Therefore, direct examination to the doctor still needs to be done.
Handling of gout arthritis (gout) depends on the condition being experienced, whether it is in an acute attack (that is, characterized by a phase of severe pain complaints) or in a non-acute attack phase (uric acid increases but pain complaints are not severe or no complaints). ). During an acute attack, the drugs that can be consumed are NSAIDs (Non-Steroid Anti-Inflammatory Drugs) which are of course given according to the doctor's advice. During an attack you can also recommend compressing the joint with a cold compress (using ice covered in a cloth) for about 20 minutes (no more). In the no-complaining phase, preventive drugs are given, such as allopurinol or probenecid, which also aim to normalize uric acid levels in the blood.
The following are suggestions that can be done to prevent gout and normalize uric acid levels in the blood:
avoid consumption of offal, seafood (crab, shrimp, shellfish), foods that contain yeast, and fish that contain lots of oil (sardines, mackerel, anchovies avoid consumption of vegetable shoots, chips, and nuts avoid alcohol consumption weight becomes the ideal body weight, consume enough water 2-2.5 liters per day That's all, hope it helps
