Historically, gout was known as “the king of diseases and the disease of kings” or “the rich man’s disease”.
There may be no pain worse than GOUT. But it’s usually not considered to be life threatening.
A new study from the University of Limerick changes that.
Because if you suffer from GOUT, you’re at great risk of developing one of the most dangerous disease in today’s modern world.
The good news is that curing GOUT naturally is pretty easy and straightforward, and it will counteract the deadly disease as well.
The researchers identified 68,897 patients with gout and 554,964 with no such diagnosis.
They found people with gout were twice as likely to develop advanced kidney disease.
After adjusting their results to exclude all other possible kidney disease risks like high blood pressure and diabetes, gout sufferers still had a 29 percent higher risk.
They defined advanced kidney disease as one or more of the following:
Kidney function deteriorating to less than 10 percent of normal.
Need for dialysis or kidney transplant.
Twice as high blood creatinine as normal.
Kidney disease related death.
People with gout had more than twice the risk of developing end-stage kidney disease, which is almost complete kidney failure; this can potentially lead to fatal consequences.
Since the kidney disease risk is much higher for people with gout, it is important that you keep your uric acid levels under control to save your kidneys.
