Gout is a painful disease of the joints (basically the big toe), caused by body's inability to process uric acid. In a healthy individual, uric acid is filtered by the kidneys and gets expelled in urine. An increased buildup of uric acid in the body is brought about by consumption of high purine foods, elevated production of uric acid and failure to excrete uric acid by the kidneys. Under such cases, urate crystals are formed and deposited in the joints. Pain is the essence of an acute gout attack, and is accompanied with redness, swelling, warmth and tenderness of the joint.

What is the Best Treatment for Gout?

An untreated gout further risks the patient for various health complications, such as nodule formation under skin, bone degeneration, kidney stones, renal failure and disability. The best treatment for gout is aimed at reducing painful symptoms that disturb normal motility, reduce the length of attacks, minimizing the risk of future flareups and also, avoiding complications. Gout symptoms are manageable with a combined therapy of medication, diet and self care tips, which is explained below.

Medication for Gout Treatment
There is nothing like the best medications for treating gout, as they are prescribed based on the patient's compliance to drugs. There are several alternatives of drugs for gout treatment, namely nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDS), corticosteroids, colchicine, allopurinol and probenecid amongst others. Of these, oral NSAIDS and corticosteroids (oral tablets or injections) are prescribed commonly. Both are effective to reduce inflammation, but have no significant effect in lowering uric acid levels.

In case, patients are not responding to NSAIDS and corticosteroids, an appropriate dosage of colchicine will be prescribed. This analgesic medication is to be taken within 12 hours of acute gout attacks. A daily dose of the same is recommended to minimize future flareups of gout. Contrary to this, the action of the drug allopurinol is to inhibit uric acid secretion, and probenecid promotes excretion of uric acid through urination. Thus, these gout treatment drugs work well for combating hyperuricemia.

Best Home Treatment for Gout
Treating gout pain at home is all about getting enough rest and avoiding pressure on the affected area. The best remedy is drinking ample amounts of water (2-3 liters per day) and healthy fluids. This reduces blood uric acid concentration and also, aids in removing this acid. Other effectual home remedies for acute gout treatment are applying cold compresses and elevation of the inflamed joint. One should have analgesic painkillers and other prescription medications at the time of acute gout attack.

Diet for Gout Treatment
Making dietary modifications is of utmost importance in adopting best treatment for gout. The anti gout diet is based on low fat, moderate protein and high carbohydrate content. A patient is expected to follow uric acid reduction diet, planned with low purine foods. Foods to include in gout diet are skimmed milk, fresh berries, cherries, banana, other raw fruits, vegetables, nuts and whole grains. On the other hand, foods high in purine, like anchovies, red meat, organ meat, mushrooms, fish eggs, should be eliminated from the diet plan.

Consumption of fatty foods is not recommended, as they indirectly cause increased uric acid production in the body. In the same way, a calorie restriction diet results in excess production of uric acid, which triggers gout attacks. The alternative gout treatment guidelines revolve around improving the function of excretory organs, namely the liver and kidneys. The logic is to expel uric acid as much as possible from the body. Last but not the least, patients having gout should perform regular exercises to maintain normal motility of the joints.

To get satisfactory results, and avoid medication side effects, always stick to the prescribed drugs and their dosage. In addition, gout patients should plan followup visits as suggested by the concerned doctor. Speaking about preventing gout attacks and curing this painful condition, the thumb rules are lowering uric acid levels, eliminating foods high in purines, controlling weight, eating well-balanced (low purine) diet and alcohol abstinence.
