Walking with Gout

Lots of people are confused especially when they have gout if is it fine to walk or engage in any exercise when they have gout. Yes, it is fine to walk with gout except during a painful gout flare. People with gout must stay active to maintain cardiovascular health and protect joints from long-term damage.


Importance of Walking When You Have Gout

Gout can erode and destroy your joints if left untreated. Keeping your joints healthy when you have gout must also involve physical activity and exercise for two main reasons:

1. Maintaining a Healthy Weight

Having a healthy weight prevents excessive weight-bearing force on your joints. A healthy diet to control weight has been found to help people to decrease their uric acid levels. Obesity increases gout risk. Women with obesity and genetic risk for gout were most likely to develop it. For this reason, it is recommended to have a healthy weight to prevent gout. 

2. Exercise Helps Control Gout 

Exercise helps lower uric acid levels which prevent gout attacks. Researchers have found that fat in the body carries more uric acid than the muscles. However, when you have reduced body fat, you also have reduced uric acid levels in your blood. In addition, according to a study, building cardiovascular health through exercise is also very important for people with gout because they have a higher risk of developing high blood pressure

Gout Diet to Prevent Attacks

A gout is a painful form of arthritis that occurs when too much uric acid builds up and forms crystals in your joints. Your body makes uric acid after it breaks down a substance called purine, which is found in many foods. One of the things that may help you manage your gout is to lessen the number of purines you eat. Keep in mind that what you eat can affect how much uric acid your body produces.

No specific eating plan will completely prevent flare-ups, but a good gout diet will help you:

  • Limit foods with purines
  • Add foods that can help control uric acid levels
  • Reach a healthy weight
  • Set and stick to good eating habits
