Common Questions and Answers about Testosterone and gout


Avatar n tn He went to his doctor and was diagnosed with gout. Since then, he only had one gout-like attack (not painful at all) on the toe next to his big one, and only lasted a couple of hours. He isn't complaining about pain or anything, thankfully.. but I am still worried about gout in general.
Avatar f tn True Gout affects the joints of our body and occurs when uric acid crystals are deposited in and around the joints. It's like throwing sand and tiny bits of gravel in a clean and well lubricated joint. This causes pain, inflammation, often redness and always swelling in specific joints. It more commonly effects the lower joints of our body especially the big toe. But the ankle, knee or other joints can be effected.
Avatar n tn Greetings from the arthritis forum! We would be glad to give you full details about Gout! Gout is a disease hallmarked by elevated levels of uric acid in your blood. In this condition, crystals of monosodium urate (MSU) or uric acid are deposited on the articular cartilage of joints, tendons, and surrounding tissues. Gout is characterized by excruciating, sudden, unexpected, burning pain, as well as swelling, redness, warmth, and stiffness in the affected joint.
Avatar m tn What is the connection between gout and incevik? Is there a dangerous side effect. My husband just started incevik but has a history of gout for which he takes daily allopurinol.
Avatar m tn I recently finished 12 weeks of Sovaldi and Olysio where I cleared and relapsed after I finished.I take allopurinol every day for my gout and did so during treatment.It has no negative effect on you during treatment.Gout can lead to serious problems if not treated.You really should get some blood work to see your uric acid levels.A rheumatologist is the one who treats people for gout but Im sure your GP or hepatologist will write up the bloodwork for you.
Avatar n tn There are articles which link uric acid levels (high uric acid is associated with Gout) with HCV and interferon but I don't think that gout is a side effect of HCV or treatment. If that were the case I think I would have seen a lot more posts on the subject - I can't remember one). I treated 3 times and my last ended in June 2004. I never had gout until May 2009. Too often we attribute every malady we have to HCV or treatment but it's more often that not wrong.
Avatar m tn s easy to rule this in or out based on Uric Acid levels in your blood. I assume your PCP has done this and that is his rationale behind dismissing Gout. What I do think is that you need to find out the reason your foot is swelling. The swelling alone can damage tissues and structures if left untreated...which you certainly don't want to do, especially at 25. Dark urine could be from nothing more then not drinking enough fluids.
Avatar m tn It almost feels like knives stabbing me from toes to hips, and sometime have a numb feeling and the big veins in feet and legs get bigger. And now for some reason I've been having med to high fevers very often.
Avatar n tn I am suffering from acute gout right now and have found many connections with hypothyroid and gout and a fair amount on its (hypo) connection to tooth decay and gum disease! Does anybody have any knowledge of these relationships? How about the tale of Lugol's Iodine on the bottom of your feet at night? Do you have to be on meds to manage hypothyroid or is iodine replacement enough?
Avatar m tn Hi all! I live in the UK and reached your forum looking for some answers. I will see an Endocrinologist soon but I don't know how 'conservative' is - so would like to have some opinions beforehand...

Avatar n tn I have exactly this problem. A very fit and healthy 51 year old right hand that only a week ago had a comment about my firm handshake. Now I can't shake hands, the knuckle at the top of my middle finger is sore and swollen making it difficult to both lay my hand flat or make a fist. There was no impact injury that I can think of and xrays showed nothing. I've never had gout and the only other joint issue I have is a bad knee. Any clues?
Avatar m tn Are there reference ranges for the prolactins, IGF, Z score, Testosterone and FSH? Your levels don't really look "right", but then different labs have different ranges for things, so all of that has to come from your own report. Your calcium is high - have you had Parathyroid hormone (PTH) tested? You could have parathyroid adenoma.
Avatar f tn Hi ggreg and thank you for the link. I looked it up and yes, it does sound like Gout with the exception of the inflammation. I am currently undergoing tests, to do with my kidneys, as they think there may be some damage from the Diomax I was taking for two years for IIH. It does all seems to link up together,unfortunately. Once again, thanks for taking the time out to answer, Cath278.
Avatar m tn mandukasan(not for pregnant women) - kneel down(with feet pointing inwards,and sit on the ankles/heels, Vajrasan position), breathe in and breathe out completely and hold your breath, pull the stomach in, press both your hands on stomach, bend forward as much as possible keeping the head straight, hold for 5 to 15 seconds and come back up while breathing in.Do this asan 3 times daily before meals, to stimulate the kidney and pancreas.
206807 tn?1331936184 High cell turnover rate after treatment caused partly by anemia and other factors contribute to higher uric acid and post treatment gout flairs. I'm a lacto-ovo vegetarian and do the cherry juice, apple cider vinegar with mothers and other home remedies and I don't know if they work but they are good for you anyway.
Male I have been on Allopurinol and had two rounds of steroids and within three days of being off the steroids my gout returns. I don't drink, or eat a much meat and have increased my vitamin C to 1500 mg a day, is there anything else I can do?

Avatar f tn Gout symptoms are usually a sore big toe joint (or knee occasionally) which gets red suddenly overnight without warning and becomes excruciatingly painful. So painful that even the weight of a bedsheet is agony! You can't put a sock on, let alone a shoe. Treatment can be prescribed medication such as colchicine but be warned; the side affects can be horrific! The only treatment that works for me when i get it occasionally is an into inflammatory injection right into the joint.
Avatar n tn If I start it back up today do you think it will help with the gout pain and inflammation? I am taking Ibuprophen and soaking in epsom salts/hot water.
Avatar m tn It is important that you reduce your red meat and alcohol intake and watch your fats. These can help and you may need to see your doctor. There is a drug that helps to break up the crystals. Good luck and hope you get relief soon.
Avatar m tn I having been having problems with pain in my foot, its really bad and when it happens I can't walk. it really seems like gout but I am a vegetarian, I have been avoiding legumes and other foods known to cause gout, I do not drink beer, could there be other causes or could it be a different condition? It has been happening quite often these past few months...
Avatar f tn My friend has had gout for five or six years with only minor 'episodes'. Recently he had a ruptured peroneal tendon and had surgery to repair that. When the surgeon did the surgery he said that it looked like 'cottage cheese' and that the gout had most likely weakened the tendon and caused the rupture. Has anyone had experience with this? Any ideas on how to help control the gout?
Avatar f tn I was recently diagnosed with gout and although I do have pain in my big toe (mainly left, but also some in right), I'm having more trouble with my fingers - they are where the pain is worst and where I've got some tophi. How common/uncommon is it to have gout more in the fingers than the toe? I know it can affect other joints other than teh big toe, but just not sure how common it is and if it makes it any more difficutl to treat?
Avatar f tn asymptomatic hyperuricemia, acute gout, interval or intercritical gout, and chronic tophaceous gout. Your doctor has recommended lifestyle modifications to prevent disease progression.
107366 tn?1305680375 I have been hearing about Total Gout Relief a lot lately. I have gout myself, and I recently started using this system. So far, it has been great! It relieves my flareups within a couple of minutes after applying the roll-on ointment. The natural supplements that come with the system are really easy to take. Now, I'm not a guy that particularly takes the initiative to take his medication. In fact, I absolutely I hate swallowing pills, but the Total Gout Relief pills are so worth taking.
