At first everything is fine: they lose extra pounds, they look better, but… the bone of the big toe starts to hurt, and so do the other joints. The doctor diagnoses gout and surprises the patient by saying that a radical change in lifestyle is probably the cause
Therefore, such changes should be gradual. Our body does not like shocks. Your husband was probably eating well, but then decided to cut back on calories too. Yes, he lost weight pretty quickly, but it wasn't for good. Because such an extreme is one of the reasons for the increase in the level of uric acid in the blood, namely this can cause gout - inflammation of the joints, i.e.h. and the bone of the big toe. So fasting is no less dangerous than overeating. But that's not all.
"The increased level of uric acid in the blood is often accompanied by serious problems with the heart and blood vessels - explains cardiologist Prof. Sergey Tereshchenko. – If the biochemical analysis of the blood shows an increased level of this acid, symptoms may appear, such as increased blood pressure, etc. This will require you to be examined not only by a surgeon, but also by a cardiologist and even an endocrinologist. Once you have firmly decided to go on the path of a he althy lifestyle, instead of sharply reducing calories, it is better to give up red wine, meat and offal. Focus on fruits, vegetables and a little white chicken. In addition, you will need to take preparations to reduce the level of uric acid in the blood".
