Already treated and took herbal medicine, it still hasn’t healed yet please explain how to make my mother like before
Good evening, thanks for the question
An increase in uric acid levels in the blood or hyperuricemia is caused by two factors, namely high production of uric acid levels in the body or a decrease in uric acid excretion in the kidneys. High uric acid levels are controlled by administering gout-lowering drugs. This treatment does not provide an instant effect, but is given for long-term treatment. So if the uric acid level has not dropped then the patient should not necessarily stop the treatment. Allopurinol is widely used to control uric acid levels and is also able to significantly reduce uric acid in the blood.
In addition to medicine, diet management is also needed by avoiding consumption of high-purine-sourced foods, such as meat, organ meats, crabs, shellfish, beans, and cheese. Besides sweet drinks are also at risk in patients with high gout. The use of certain drugs is also known to cause a decrease in uric acid excretion so that the inside increases.
Increase consumption of fruits, such as oranges, melons, apples, and green vegetables, carrots, tomatoes. In addition, adequate fluid intake to prevent the formation of crystals in the joints. Perform routine control with your doctor to evaluate the treatment response in controlling uric acid levels.
That's all, hope you can help
