Rheumatologist, Professor Aida Babayeva said that people with a high level of affluence sometimes suffer from gout, a factor in the development of which is largely nutrition. Gout is an increased secretion of uric acid due to increased intake of purine compounds into the body.
Uric acid turns into salts deposited in the joints, which disrupts their performance.
Men suffer from gout much more often than women. The joints begin to ache, especially in the lower part of the leg. Walking and any movement in general causes pain.
To reduce the possibility of gout, you need to give up excess meat food. It is necessary to give preference to plant foods. However, legumes and spinach, which are healthy foods, contain a lot of purines. Therefore, their use should also be strictly limited. “And from animal food, it is necessary to exclude or sharply reduce the consumption of meat, offal, such as liver, kidneys and lungs, caviar, chocolate, animal oil”
Excess weight is also a factor in the development of gout. So, those who want to stay healthy should carefully monitor their weight.
