Uric acid is a chemical compound made of carbon, oxygen and hydrogen. The kidneys process this acid, but in case the kidneys fail to finish this task, high blood levels of uric acid in your system can cause formation of solid crystals. Gout is a form of arthritis, in which uric acid crystals deposit in the joints.
What Causes Uric Acid Crystals in Joints?.
As the name suggests, these crystals that accumulate in your body especially in the joints are uric acid salts which are formed in the body as an end product of purine metabolism. Purines are formed from food, biological synthesis or nucleic acids metabolism. The accumulation of uric acid crystals in joints and all over the body occurs as a result of either decreased or increased excretion.
What Happens When Uric Acid Crystals Collect in The Joints?.
The presence of uric acid crystals in joints can lead to severe pain in the joints. This pain is especially strong during the night. What is interesting is the fact that in most cases only one of the joints is affected, most often that’s the joint of the big toe, although in some cases these crystals can spread to several joints.
The occurrence of high temperature and chills is not rare in people who have problems with this accumulation. The presence of uric acid crystals in the joints is a hallmark of gout – a disease mostly present in men. This is a metabolic disease manifested by the occurrence of acute arthritis.
Foods That Keep Your Uric Acid at Normal Levels.
In order to keep uric acid at normal levels you should definitely be careful what you eat, because as we have mentioned before the occurrence of uric acid crystals in joints has its roots in the metabolic disorders.
In general, to bypass the accumulation of uric acid crystals in joints, you should avoid alcohol, sugary foods, meat, poultry and give advantage to food that contains less fat because most of these foods have preventive and healing properties. Those who have problem with increased levels of uric acid in their system should take more raw vegetables and fruits rich in vitamin C as Awla, Guava, Kiwi, Sweet lime, oranges, capsicum, lemon and green leafy veg.
Fruit should be consumed only on an empty stomach. It is very useful to include potatoes in the menu (but not fried potatoes). Potatoes have both healing and preventive properties.
