Use Of Chili Patches In Gout Sufferers?
Can gout joint disease be affixed with chili patches
Hello Farul, thank you for the question for HealthReplies.com
Chili patches can indeed be used to relieve muscle aches and joint pains. Joint pain due to gout or what is called gout usually causes symptoms such as swelling, redness, and pain in a certain joint area, most commonly the joint at the base of the big toe. The chilli patch can be used to help reduce this pain, however the chili patch itself cannot cure this condition completely.
Gout occurs due to a buildup of uric acid crystals in the joints. Gout is the most common complication in people with hyperuricemia (high uric acid in the blood). To overcome this disease, a person needs to control his uric acid levels so that gout does not recur.
There are 2 types of treatment for gout and hyperuricemia, treatment of acute attacks of gout (administration of non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, corticosteroids, and colchicine) and treatment of lowering blood uric acid levels (administration of drugs such as allopurinol, probenecid, lesinurad). To get these drugs, you must consult directly with your doctor first. Apart from giving medication, you will also be advised to maintain your diet. The following are some foods that people with gout and hyperuricemia should avoid:
animal offal or internal organs
red meat (small amounts are still allowed)
certain seafood such as anchovies, sardines, shellfish, oysters, mackerel, tuna
Some of the recommended foods for consumption include:
low fat milk
complex carbohydrates such as brown rice, brown rice, whole grains
coffee in moderation (not excessive)
