Thread: I can Haz Kidney Stone?





Uric acid is a natural by-product that is produced when the body breaks down purine, so less purine in the body means that the kidney's can work to get the body back into balance by eliminating the excess uric acid as waste.

Is interesting to note that purine is naturally present in the tissues of our body, and it is only when there is an excess of purine, often caused by a diet rich in foods with high purine levels that the uric acid builds up. Shocked

Water dilutes uric acid, an excess of which in the body is often, but not always, the immediate cause of gout. Diluted uric acid is more likely to be expelled from the body. If it is, the body's level of uric acid falls. And if uric acid levels fall to the clinical target of 6mg/dL in men, slightly less in women, the troublesome MSU crystals in the joints may dissolve, thus relieving a gout attack and preventing a recurrent one.



  • Since one of the objectives of drinking water is to raise body pH use pH test strips or litmus paper to discover and monitor your pH.
  • Type "pH test strips" or "pH test stix" into an Internet search box to find online suppliers.
  • Make sure you follow the leaflet's instructions, and monitor results by looking for trend changes over time.
  • One test doesn't cut it.



Any Drink With Alcohol is Out

Finally don't forget those foods which are laden with water. The highest water content foods are surprise, surprise, watermelons and tomatoes. Both contain over 90% water. Watermelons are an alkaline food, but be aware that tomatoes may be low pH (i.e. acidic) and this makes eating them a source of debate among those who discuss the fine points of a gout diet. And eat soups and stews - it's water again. Surprised.

Caffeine, as many people know, acts as a diuretic. That is, it draws water out of cells. But decaffeinated coffee has scarcely any caffeine. Every cloud has a silver lining; so consider that this article on Uric Acid Levels to be the silver lining to the clouds of articles on Uric Acid Levels. It is this article that will add more spice to the meaning of Uric Acid Levels.

Cow's Milk is Around 88% Water

Not quite as much as a glass of water, but pretty close at the end of a twelve glass day. One study showed that milk proteins could reduce uric acid levels, another that dairy products lowered the risk of getting gout.

Juices count too and are helpful for gout sufferers if they are made from fruits with high amounts of flavonoid antioxidants. Cherry juice for gout is the most widely touted. Auburn university such as strawberries, blueberries, and blackberries are also very high in flavonoid antioxidants and contain useful amounts of vitamin C, which some studies have shown can reduce uric acid levels.

Hence the exhortations morin gout sufferers to drink water. At least 8 - 12 x 8fl.oz glasses a day, perhaps more. Twelve glasses of water is about twice the recommended daily amount for healthy people. Some people would find this daunting. But it doesn't all have to be "pure" water.

The Results of the Test Where Astonishing

The test subjects' urate levels decreased significantly after the meal of cherries, and levels of uric acid in the urine increased over the first 5 hours after the "bowl of cherries" was eaten. You may say that we have included drew university information here on Gout Natural. This is with the intention of producing a unique article on Gout Natural. Embarassed



  • To measure the effects of the cherries, they took measurements of the amount of plasma urate, which is basically the level of uric acid in the blood.
  • They also measured the amount of uric acid passed through the kidneys in the test subjects urine.



Each person, as part of the test, was fed an exact serving of fresh cherries for breakfast. No other fruits, teas, vegetables, or red wine was allowed prior to and during the study as these foods are also high in anti oxidants, and may have interfered with the results of the study.



  • So, this shows that eating cherries may have a significant effect in the battle against gout symptoms.
  • Further studies are being conducted into the effects of cherries on other diseases, but the results are promising.



The study even goes on to suggest that eating cherries can also reduce the severity of reduce joint inflammation using omega 3 fish oil supplements such as cancer and heart diseases. Rolling Eyes

ARS is one of the first institutions to scientifically research the effects of cherries in a controlled environment, in this study Bing cherries were used. And this study was interesting as it did not try and analyze extracts from the fruit in a test tube. ARS actually used test subjects - Real people who ate the cherries - and checked the levels of important inflammatory disease or markers in blood samples. Laughing

They found that there are some natural compounds in cherries that reduce inflammation and pain caused by arthritis. As Gout is a form of arthritis bought about by an excess of uric acid, this study points to a natural way to relieve the debilitating pain of gout symptoms.
