Gout

Gout 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 (~50% of cases).

Other joints, such as the heels, knees, wrists and fingers, may also be affected. It may also present as tophi (collections of uric acid crystals), kidney stones, or urate nephropathy. It is caused by elevated levels of uric acid in the blood which crystallize and are deposited in joints, tendons, and surrounding tissues. Gout was historically known as “the disease of kings” or “rich man’s disease”.

Hyperuricemia is the underlying cause of gout. This can occur for a number of reasons, including diet, genetic predisposition, or under excretion of urate (the salts of uric acid). Dietary causes account for about 12% of gout, and include a strong association with the consumption of alcohol, fructose-sweetened drinks, meat, and seafood. Other triggers include physical trauma and surgery. (Ref: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gout)

Signs and Symptoms

Symptoms of acute gouty attacks:
1. Symptoms develop suddenly and usually involve only one or a few joints. The big toe, knee, or ankle joints are most often affected.
2. The pain frequently starts during the night and is often described as throbbing, crushing, or excruciating.
3. The joint appears warm and red. It is usually very tender (it hurts to lay a sheet or blanket over it).
4. There may be a fever.
5. The attack may go away in several days, but may return from time to time. Additional attacks usually last longer.

After a first gouty attack, people will have no symptoms. Some people will go months or even years between gouty attacks. Some people may develop chronic gouty arthritis, but others may have no further attacks. Those with chronic arthritis develop joint deformities and loss of motion in the joints. They will have joint pain and other symptoms most of the time. Tophi are lumps below the skin around joints or in other places. They may drain chalky material. Tophi usually develop only after a patient has had the disease for many years. After one gouty attack, more than half of people will have another attack.

Risk Factors

It is more common in males, postmenopausal women, and people who drink alcohol.

Diagnosis & Testing

Diagnosis is confirmed clinically by the visualization of the characteristic crystals in joint fluid. Tests that may be done include synovial fluid analysis (shows uric acid crystals), Uric acid – blood & urine, Joint x-rays (maybe normal), Synovial biopsy.

The AyurVAID protocol is based on the simple premise that the Physician must diagnose and treat only based on sufficient evidence. This evidence should be ‘patient or rogi based’ in addition to being ‘disease or roga based’ in accordance with the fundamental principles of Ayurveda.

How is this made possible?
  • A thorough and complete recording of the patient’s medical history, capturing every minute aspect of his/her lifestyle.
  • A thorough head-to-toe clinical examination, uncovering health risk factors that the patient is unaware of, directly connected or unrelated with his presenting medical complaint(s).
  • This process of detailed history recording and clinical examination- which includes the classical Srotha-Vikrti pariksha – leads to an accurate understanding of the Dosha status of the individual and lays the foundation for an accurate differential diagnosis and medical management.
  • Further, the patient is entitled to be clearly informed about the diagnosis arrived at, as also understand the medical management proposed for him. The Physician shall proceed only with the patient’s informed concurrence.

Key Outcome

1. Reduced uric acid levels in blood & urine.
2. Marked reduction in pain – tracked in pain scale.
3. Visible reduction in swelling, redness.
4. Increase in range of movements.
