Gout is a systemic disease caused by the buildup of uric acid in the joints of your toes, feet and ankles. This causes inflammation, swelling and pain.
Signs & Symptoms of Gout:
The liver may produce more uric acid than the body can excrete in the urine. A diet of rich foods (red meat, cream sauces, saturated fats and red wine) adds more uric acid into the bloodstream than the kidneys can filter. A condition called hyperuricemia is most often the result.
Over time, the uric acid crystallizes and settles in the joint spaces, most commonly in the first joint (metatarsal phalangeal) of the big toe or in the ankle joint.
The most reliable way to diagnose gout is to examine the joint fluid for uric acid crystals. Your doctor will do this by drawing fluid from the joint with a needle and examining it under a polarized light microscope. The test is invasive, the results are definitive, and a positive result facilitates proper treatment and quick relief.
Treatment for gout involves decreasing the amount of
uric acid in the joint. If dietary habits are the cause,
the patient's lifestyle must be changed to avoid the condition.
We recommend using the safe far infrared natural healing method. For long term results, we suggest monitoring your dietary habits and wearing Prolotex™ "RELAXED FIT" Far Infrared Therapy Socks
Alcohol and rich foods are primary contributors to excessive uric acid levels. Although some patients have a genetic predisposition to excessive uric acid production, most gout patients have normal kidneys and uncontrolled dietary habits. Prevention is the best defense against the disease. .
Often people who are afflicted with gout continue to indulge, and suffer frequent painful attacks, as a result. The continued accumulation of uric acid in the joints eventually damages them, seriously inhibiting movement.
Traditional medication makes it possible to live with gout, but Far Infrared Rays will actually help to break down the Uric Acid Crystals and reduce the acidity levels in the blood.

When you wear Prolotex™ FIR Socks during the day or to bed, you can feel confident that microcirculation is improving, toxins are being flushed, fresh nutrients and oxygen are reaching the cellular level, and uric acid levels are being reduced.
Complications of Gout: Where high uric acid has been present for a long time and acute gout has been frequent and severe, deposits of uric acid salts may appear around the affected joint and even in tissues elsewhere, such as the ears. These are seen as chalk colored nodules called "tophi". Their presence indicates the need for treatment with a long term uric acid lowering drugs.
High uric acid levels and recurrent gout are often associated with high blood pressure, which your doctor will check and treat, as necessary. This combination of hyperuricemia and high blood pressure, can lead to kidney damage. We suggest consulting with your doctor on a regular basis to check and monitor the levels of uric acid in your system.
