GOUT    -   It's   hard   to   elicit   any   sympathy   when   you   have   something   called   the   "disease   of   kings"   or   "rich   man's   disease."   Gout   earned   that   nickname because it was linked to powerful rulers like Henry VIII and Charlemagne, who liked their fair share of rich food and wine. But   if   you've   ever   actually   suffered   from   a   bout   of   gout   yourself,   you   know   that   the   blistering   pain   can   feel   like   a   medieval   sword   stabbing   through   your   toes. The agony can make it impossible to sleep and leave you limping for days. Now, a new large study shows that gout may be far more than a royal pain in the big toe, it can be potentially deadly, too. That's   according   to   an   analysis   of   records   from   nearly   100,000   patients.   It   concluded   that   people   who   continually   struggle   with   gout   flare-ups   are   also   in danger   of   something   much   worse:   atrial   fibrillation   (Afib)   —   when   you   have   a   rapid   and   irregular   heartbeat,   raising   your   risk   of   stroke,   heart   failure,   and other heart-related complications. Published   in   the   journal   Rheumatology,   the   study   compared   45,368   gout   patients   with   45,378   healthy   controls   and   found   that   those   suffering   from   gout   were significantly more likely to develop "AFib" over the next 10 years. The research showed that gout was more than a painful nuisance – it's a potentially lethal attack on your heart, and you need to take it seriously. Gout   is   caused   by   too   much   uric   acid   in   the   bloodstream.   If   you   produce   too   much   uric   acid   it   creates   deposits   in   the   form   of   needle-shaped   crystals   that cause inflammation and pain in the joints. Often, it can leave you in agony and even bed-ridden for days or weeks. Researchers believe that the build-up of uric acid levels changes the overall structure of the heart, making you more vulnerable to AFib. Fortunately, you can lower your levels of uric acid, stop gout flare-ups and protect your heart from atrial fibrillation by following these steps: Change your diet:  Limit your intake of foods rich in uric acid, like liver, kidneys, and certain types of seafood, like sardines and anchovies. Drink   less   alcohol:    Alcohol   can   actually   prevent   your   kidneys   from   releasing   uric   acid   into   your   urine,   which   means   it   stays   in   your   body,   and   builds   up   in your joints. Taking alcohol during an attack can considerably worsen the situation. During an attack it is helpful to drink lots of water to ‘flush’ out your body. Try   a   herbal   remedies:    Tart   Cherry   Capsules    has   proven   to   be   of   great   benefit   to   sufferers   of   gout   and   works   to   not   only   expel   Uric   Acid   but   also   prevents it   building   up   in   your   body   in   the   first   place   if   a   daily   dosage   is   maintained.   Devil's   claw   has   been   used   for   centuries   to   help   reduce   inflammation   and   pain   and also helps your body get rid of uric acid.
