How to treat gout with legs: advice of doctors
The development of gout leads to increased levels of uric acid in the body. A typical manifestation of this disease is specific arthritis. In this case, mainly the joints of the lower extremities suffer - the first metatarsophalangeal, ankle, knee, articulations of the small bones of the foot. It's not for nothing that in translation from ancient Greek gout means a trap for feet.
The main directions of
Effective treatment of gout on the legs involves not only the elimination of arthritis itself, but also the reasons that led to it. In this regard, it is important to fight hyperuricemia - an increased content of uric acid in the body. In the treatment of this pathology use:
- Non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs( NSAIDs)
- Steroid hormones
- Drugs that inhibit the synthesis of uric acid
- Drugs that enhance its elimination from the body
- Recipes of traditional medicine.
Before treating leg gout with medication, the patient should be provided with the appropriate protective regimen. Maximum limited, and sometimes completely exclude motor activity, and the very affected limb is brought to an elevated position. NSAIDs are effective for any arthritis, incl.and with gouty. However, not all drugs from this group can be used in this case. For example, Acetylsalicylic acid and its derivatives increase the content of uric acid in the body. Therefore, salicylates are contraindicated in gout.
But indomethacin is quite suitable. This drug is the drug of choice in the treatment of gout. Other means will be suitable - Naproxen, Ibuprofen, Diclofenac. When starting to treat gout with NSAIDs, do not forget about their negative effect on the gastrointestinal tract, liver and blood clotting. Steroid hormones( Kenalog, Diprospan) show the maximum efficiency at their intraarticular introduction. Ingestion of these drugs is also accompanied by side effects.
But the most effective remedy for exacerbation of gouty arthritis is Kolhitsin. After ingestion of Colchicine tablets, the inflammation in the joints immediately goes to a decline. True, this remedy is contraindicated in renal failure. And the latter, as is known, is a frequent complication of gout.We recommend reading: Drugs for the treatment of gout
Gout on the toes is manifested not only by arthritis, but also by tofus - subcutaneous deposits of uric acid salts. Causing inflammation of joint capsules and tendons, tofus complicate the flow of arthritis. With a decrease in the level of uric acid in the body tofusi decrease in size, and sometimes completely disappear. At the same time, the inflammation in the joints of the feet is stopped. To this end, use drugs that inhibit the synthesis of uric acid( Allopurinol) and promote its excretion in the urine( Etamid, Urodan, Sulfinpyrazon).After relieving the exacerbation the medication effect is fixed by physical procedures - UHF, electrophoresis, magnetotherapy.
As Hippocrates said, for the first time describing gout, - let your food be medicine and medicine - food. Curing gout on your feet with diet alone is hardly possible, since it is a chronic disease. However, some restrictions in the diet will help improve the patient's well-being.
First of all, you should give up alcohol, strong tea, coffee and fatty foods. There are some products, the use of which leads to the accumulation of uric acid. This meat, fish, liver, brains, peas, soybeans, beans, mushrooms, eggs, carrots, salad. These products should be limited as much as possible. Meat and fish dishes should be used in boiled form without spices and spices. The diet should contain fresh fruits and vegetables. It is important to comply with the optimal water regime. The amount of water drunk per day must be at least 2-2.5 liters. Preferred alkaline non-carbonated drink.
Treatment in the home of gout is carried out with the help of folk remedies in the form of compresses, lotions, ointments of own preparation and other external means. The simplest means for treating exacerbation of arthritis at home is to apply cold to the affected joint. The next day, on the contrary, they warm up. Do this with an alcohol compress. On the affected joint, apply a cloth moistened in alcohol or in a vodka, a piece of clean cloth. Napkin covered with polyethylene, and polyethylene - cotton. All this is fixed with a bandage or a dense woolen cloth.
Another effective tool is to mix butter with the same volume of powdered horsetries. The mixture is heated in a water bath and rubed into the affected joints. You can also use as an infusion of infusions of elderberry and chamomile flowers. For its preparation, the flowers taken in equal amounts are poured with boiling water and infused for 2 hours. Then, the infusion is filtered and applied to the diseased joints. Showed also the baths of broth chamomile with the addition of sea salt crystals.
Removal of uric acid is facilitated by ingestion of herbal infusions and decoctions, berries. The most useful berry for gout is strawberries, which can be eaten in kind. The reception of strawberries can be combined with the use of birch sap - 1 glass three times a day. Decoction of celery roots( 1 tablespoon in 2 cups of boiling water) is taken at 2 tbsp.spoon three times a day for 3 hours before meals. Traditional medicine for gout recommends tea from the sequence of the tripartite, which is drunk in hot form.
Unfortunately, folk remedies, as well as a diet with medicines for leg gout, do not always provide the desired result. Sometimes the accumulation of uric acid leads to irreversible changes in the joints of the lower extremities. In such situations, resort to surgery - plastic or joint prosthetics.
Why does gout occur?
Gout is an ailment that occurs when violating purine metabolism in the human body. How does this violation occur?
If the composition of food consumed by a person includes a large number of purines( substances without which no cell of our body can do), too much uric acid is released during their processing. And much depends on the timely work of the kidneys.
If the kidneys are healthy, the acid is eliminated from the body with urine without much trouble. If the kidneys function poorly, urate( uric acid salts) begins to accumulate in the body. Surpluses of urate in the form of crystals begin to be deposited in the diartereses, tendons and cartilages of the human body. This is one of the ways of gout.
However, the level of uric acid is not always the cause of gout. In some patients, painful symptoms can be observed, even if its number is normal( here you can read about the symptoms of gout on the legs).Sometimes in the occurrence of gout, the use of a number of medications is guilty.
