Gout Treatment Options

in Glendale, Burbank & Pasadena

What is Gout, and How Can It Be Treated? Options near Glendale, CA:

If you have never experienced gout before, the onset of throbbing pain at the base of your big toe can completely catch you off guard. This often happens in the middle of the night, when you suddenly wake up to find that your joint is so swollen, red and painful, that even touching it lightly is excruciating.

Gout is nothing to take lightly, and it’s important to promptly seek medical help. If left untreated, recurring episodes may escalate and involve other joints (such as your ankles, knees, and hands). Subsequent attacks will likely bring increased pain and the possibility of joint damage. If you suspect that you have gout, call us! We have treatment options that will help manage the symptoms and will reduce the possibility of recurrence.

Gout occurs when urate crystals accumulate in your joint. These crystals form when there is a high level of uric acid in your blood. Sometimes this is related to substances found naturally in your body, but it also can be associated with certain food and beverages (such as steak, seafood, alcohol and drinks sweetened with fructose). Other factors may come into play as well (such as obesity, certain medical conditions, history of gout in your family, a recent surgery or trauma). The important thing to remember is that gout is treatable with the help of a professional.

Not realizing the condition for what it is, many try to treat gout themselves using home remedies. This is not a good idea! Without proper treatment, gout can recur more frequently and lead to complications that will further damage the affected joint. We have years of experience treating gout and can offer a wide range of immediate and preventative treatments. Call us for a professional consultation. There is no need to suffer when help is a phone call away!
