Dangers of Excessive Uric Acid
Uric acid can be caused by several different things. Eating and drinking certain things that are high in purines can cause an excess of uric acid in the body. Other causes of excessive uric acid include family history, alcohol consumption, and rapid weight loss in the body. Although most uric acid is dissolved into the blood stream and can pass through the body naturally, in some cases it can build up if it isn’t broken down quickly enough by the kidneys. This causes problems such as gout, kidney stones, and even kidney failure if left untreated.
Gout (also known as podagra when it involves the big toe) is a medical condition usually characterized by recurrent attacks of acute inflammatory arthritis—a red, tender, hot, swollen joint. The metatarsal-phalangeal joint at the base of the big toe is the most commonly affected (approximately 50% of cases). It may also present as tophi, kidney stones, or urate nephropathy. It is caused by elevated levels of uric acid in the blood. The uric acid crystallizes, and the crystals deposit in joints, tendons, and surrounding tissues.
Clinical diagnosis may be confirmed by seeing the characteristic crystals in joint fluid. Treatment with nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs), steroids, or colchicine improves symptoms. Once the acute attack subsides, levels of uric acid are usually lowered via lifestyle changes, and in those with frequent attacks, allopurinol or probenecid provides long-term prevention.
Gout has become more common in recent decades, affecting about 1–2% of the Western population at some point in their lives. The increase is believed to be due to increasing risk factors in the population, such as metabolic syndrome, longer life expectancy, and changes in diet. Gout was historically known as “the disease of kings” or “rich man’s disease.”
