Gout is a type of arthritis characterized by distinct swelling, redness, and intense pain in joints of many parts of the body. It usually affects the fingers, big toes, ankles, and knees. It happens when a person has a high amount of uric acid.
Uric acid can pass through the body through urination. However, if there is an excessive amount, it will lead to the formulation of urate crystals. And those crystals build up in the joints and tissues, causing pain and discomfort in the affected area. Any adult, including seniors from Home Health Care Services in Tampa, Florida, can have gouty arthritis with a poor diet.
Aside from unhealthy eating habits, other factors that can result in gout are as follows:
- Age, gender, and weight
- Biological inheritance
- Medications and vaccines
- Other health conditions
When a senior receiving Nursing Services in Florida experiences pain and prolonged discomfort due to gout even after self-management, call his doctor for a remedy.
