Treatment of gout

The management of gout depends upon the causative factor. So the first and foremost step is to manage and eliminate the cause. Medications like NSAIDs which help in reducing pain, swelling and inflammation of joint are usually prescribed for symptomatic relief. Moreover gout medications like Probenecid, Allopurinol, which help in reducing urate synthesis, may also be given to the affected individual. Lifestyle modifications which include alcohol restriction, managing weight and avoiding crash diet usually helps in preventing future episodes of gout. It is advisable to consult a nutritionist for dietary advice. Avoidance of sardines, red meat, peas, legumes and beans helps in reducing urate formation in body. Drinking plenty of fluids may help in effective elimination of uric acid from kidneys. The prognosis of gout is good in most of the individuals, when diagnosed and managed early in course of disease.
