Treatment Of Gout With A History Of Kidney Failure?
My uric acid is high, but I added a history of kidney failure, the drug, yes, the app didn’t add side effects to the kidneys?
Hello Indah, thank you for the question for HealthReplies.com
Uric acid is a byproduct of metabolic substances (purines) in the body. High uric acid in the blood (also known as hyperuricemia) can occur due to excessive consumption of high-purine foods or due to interference with uric acid removal in the kidneys (for example due to kidney failure).
Hyperuricemia condition does not always require therapy with drugs, it all depends on how high uric acid levels in your blood and the symptoms that appear. If indeed the increase in uric acid in your blood is not too high, you do not have certain symptoms related to high uric acid, you can try to do a low purine diet first to overcome it. The following are some high-purine foods that you should avoid:
animal offal or internal organs
certain seafood such as anchovies, sardines, shellfish, oysters, mackerel, tuna
green vegetables and nuts (limited quantities are still allowed)
red meat (limited quantities are still allowed)
You can also consume the following foods that can help lower your blood uric acid levels:
Meanwhile, recommended food and drinks include:
complex carbohydrates such as oatmeal, brown rice, brown rice
low fat milk
coffee in small quantities
If indeed you have very high uric acid levels or you experience certain symptoms related to high uric acid, you should check with your doctor first. Medicines given to gout sufferers are included in hard drugs that you should not buy yourself without a doctor's prescription.
So much information from me, hopefully it will be enough to answer
