Gout & Pseudogout Q & A
What would be a recommended diet for this affliction?
While overseas, I have been diagnosed with gout by a specialist. The pain and swelling from the initial attack has never fully stopped (4 months later). The specialist has mentioned that this is due to an inflammation feedback mechanism and has prescribed Loxitan. (Active ingredients:. Meloxicam) which I have been taking for a month. Some of the pain and swelling has decreased but I still walk gingerly and cannot run. In laymans terms what is an inflammation feedback mechanism and have you ever heard of these pain symptoms lasting so long with a gout patient?
What is the connection between polymyalgia rheumatica and occasional occurence of gout? Is mild exercise recommended such as walking or swimming?
Is there any topical treatment for gout?
I KNOW THAT THERE IS ALIST OF FOODS THAT A PERSON NEEDS TO AVOID , BUT IS THER A LIST OF FOODS THAT HELPS TO ALIEVEATE THAT PAIN FASTER AND CAN HELP TO KEEP THE ATTACKES FROM COMING BACK AS OFTEN. MY HUSBAND DOSE NOT EAT ALOT OF THE FOODS THAT ARE LISTED TO HELP CAUSE GOUT. HIS IS THIN, AND ONLY HAS A THIRD OF HIS STOMIC SO HE EATS A VERY SMALL AMOUNT OF FOOD. MAYBE 1200 CAL. A DAY. ANY HELP WOULD BE APPRIEATED.
