    Does anybody notice an upswing in gout cases late in the year around Christmas and New Year's?I believe this to be so,possibly due to an increase in alcohol consumption.

    gout

    Its probably just not the alcohol, but the general dietary indiscretions that happen during that time of the year that would affect gout incidence then.

    Found this:
    "The following foods have higher levels of purines should be restricted or avoided:
    Offal foods like liver, kidneys, tripe, sweetbreads and tongue.
    Large amounts of red meat.
    Shellfish.
    Peas. lentils and beans.
    Alcohol
    "

    Dear All

    Firstly gout just does not appear by deposition of crystals of uric acid.

    The pH between the joints and blood play a major role. The presence of super saturated solutions, remember growing copper sulphate crystals at school? the same principle.

    A major cause is due to gut disease. Classically a stressful time, eg long surgical operation to sever chest infection can change the gut to make you wheat intolerant/gluten intolerant. So begins the gout cycle.

    A patient of mine has wheat intolerance developed after a stressful period in his life. Just to eat a jellybean that contains wheat dust (common) he gets the best bout of gout you can imagine.

    Worth getting them tested especially if gout starts out of the blue.

    That would make sense.A lot of gout patients do have such maladies as HTN,DM and the like.Plus the pain there-and the unpredictability of flareups-makes this a vexing disease indeed.

    Here's a picture of a gouty ankle I did an arthroscope on. This is fairly representative of what the entire ankle joint looked like.
    It was so classic I wanted to share it with you.
