The number of gout patients is on the rise, especially often seen in the middle aged men. The outbreak usually starts at the lower limb joints (especially the big toes and knees), which causing swelling, redness, burning pain and other symptoms which attack repeatedly and produce severe pain.
When uric acid concentration exceeds the normal level, it forms as sodium salt and deposits into the joints, soft tissues, cartilages and kidneys, creating tissue inflammatory reactions which are the main cause of gout. If not treated early and completely, things will be getting worse with joint swelling, deformity, stiffness and nodules before becoming kidney stones, renal failure, coronary heart disease, hyperlipidemia, hypertension, urinary tract stones and other organ dysfunction, all which will pose a serious threat to the patient’s life.
Although gout cases are not reported frequently, there are far more patients than you might believe. The most well known one is Hong Kong entertainer Eric Tsang, who was previously photographed using a wheelchair to move around because he couldn’t use his legs. It’s later confirmed that his love for drinking was what caused him to suffer from gout in the first place.
Malaysian chef Ismail Ahmad also suffered from gout and used it as inspiration for his cooking. Since then, he has made big changes in his restaurant’s menu, reducing meat and increasing vegetables so that the customers are able to enjoy a healthy and delicious dining experience.
In fact, cases of gout often occur all around us, but reports on this topic are limited. Furthermore, general public tends to ignore it simply because they have very little knowledge about gout. If we continue to ignore this illness and remain ignorant of how serious it is, society will eventually be filled with gout sufferers.
Defeating gout is something that we need to start as soon as possible. If you or your loved ones are feeling symptoms of gout, you should seek immediate medical attention in order to deal with this illness before it can get too far.
