Many of us enjoy feasts, but overindulging can raise the chance of a gout attack! There appears to be an upsurge in gout attacks, especially during the reunion celebration such as CNY or Raya.
The bulk of gout patients used to be in their 50s or 60s, but the ailment is now being treated in younger patients as well. Because hyperuricemia (a high amount of uric acid in the blood) and gout have been related to chronic kidney disease (CKD), it is recommended that anyone who has a history of a gout attack control and reduce purine-rich meals during this CNY.
Lower your gout inflammation this CNY
Avoid high purine meat
This CNY, replace red meat and shellfish with white meat and simmer fish.
Avoid high purine vegetable
Uric acid levels can be raised by eating certain vegetables such as spinach, mushrooms, cauliflower, and asparagus.
Choose wisely your drink
Beer and liquor can cause a gout flare-up by raising uric acid levels in the blood. They can also cause dehydration, which is a common cause of gout. Wine, in moderation, may be a safer option.
Do you have gout attacks on a regular basis? There is a link between it and kidney disease!
Although some people may believe that having a gout attack isn't a huge concern, they may seek pain relief to alleviate their misery. Recurrent gout attacks, on the other hand, may suggest an increased risk of kidney damage.
Take care of your food choices, manage your uric acid level, and have a happy and healthier reunion dinner in this 2022 CNY.
