Gout, like arthritis, is a painful disease resulting from excessive uric acid building up in the bloodดูหนังพากย์ไทย stream. However the nature of pain in gout is different. Whereas arthritis strikes with a distinct creaky feeling, gout strikes with a burning pain, usually in one or both feet, causing redness, swelling and lots of discomfort.
What is uric acid?
Uric acid is a waste productหนังชนโรง formed when the body breaks down a purine amino acid, usually derived from protein ingested and which can form uric acid in the body. Purine is essential to the body, as it is used to build muscles, RNA and DNA, and also breaks down the body’s cells.

o In uric acid disease, the body is unable to clear the uric acid, and build up stones are formed, mainly in the joints. This leads to swelling, intense pain and visible stones.
o The uric acid then leaches calcium from the bones, leading to further swelling and moreหีนักศึกษา pain.
