Hyperuricemia is a metabolic disorder of purine, which appears excessive uric acid in the blood and these are deposited in small joints, whose disease is called gout. This deposition can cause destruction of joint tissues leading to chronic arthritis.
With progression of disease symptoms occur more frequently and more prolonged. An injury or a trivial exercise than usual can trigger episodes of swelling and joint pain, and questions arise with crises related to the excesses of food, drink or exercise.
Obesity is usually associated with this disorder. Fasting or a diet low in carbohydrates, can also precipitate a crisis.
Since the purine metabolism is altered, it is recommended to avoid foods very rich in this substance in order to avoid metabolic stress and help the treatment even with the need for medication.
