Immediate Gout Pain Relief

A gout is a common form of arthritis that affects anyone. It is characterized by sudden, severe attacks of swelling, pain, redness, and tenderness in one or more joints. An attack of gout can occur often waking you up in the middle of the night with the feeling that your big toe is on fire. The affected joint is swollen and tender that even the weight of the bedsheet on it may seem intolerable. 


The symptoms of gout may come and go, but there are ways to manage symptoms and prevent flares. The following are some common signs and symptoms of the condition:

If you experience sudden, intense pain in a joint, call for medical assistance or call your doctor right away. Untreated gout can lead to worsening pain and joint damage. 

Risk Factors 

You are more likely to develop gout if you have high levels of uric acid in your body. Factors that increase the uric acid level in your body include:

  • Certain medications – low doses of aspirin and hypertension medicine also can increase uric acid levels. 
  • Medical conditions – untreated high blood pressure, as well as chronic conditions such as obesity, diabetes, heart disease, metabolic syndrome, and kidney diseases, can increase your risk of gout.
  • Weight – your body produces more uric acid and your kidneys have a harder time eliminating uric acid if you are overweight. 

Ways to Deal with Gout Attacks 

  • Take an NSAID but not aspirin
  • Take your medications (Colchicine, Prednisolone)
  • Apply ice to the joint (apply the cold pack intermittently throughout the day for 10 to 20 minutes at a time)
  • Elevate the joint (popping up the affected joint can ease pressure and reduce pain)
  • Stay hydrated 

Obesity Being a Risk Factor of Having Gout 

Obese people throughout adult life were at increased risk for developing gout, as were those who gained weight between early adulthood and midlife, a large retrospective study found. 

Obesity is a recognized risk factor for gout. Wherein, it is considered to result from insulin resistance and its effects on urate excretion by the kidney. Losing weight can help lower uric acid levels and reduce the frequency of attacks. 

Using HCG Diet 

Losing weight can help lower uric acid levels and reduce the frequency of attacks. With the help of the HCG Diet, you can properly manage and handle gout attacks. 

HCG Diet promotes weight loss in both men and women because it can help enhance metabolism. When introduced to the body, HCG increases metabolism, which makes it a powerful tool for quickly losing a substantial amount of weight. When a healthy diet and regular exercise are not giving the results you want, the HCG diet could be the answer. With proven effectiveness and a host of extraordinary benefits, HCG is more than a diet; it’s a metabolism-boosting solution for those who are struggling to lose weight especially when linked with a certain condition or disease.
