Details: Hi, good day. My husband has kidney failure. Several days ago, doctor said he had gout but didn’t tell us the reason. Can you tell me the reason?

Expert Answer

Gout is one disorder that often attacks joint especially in feet. It is resulted from buildup of uric acid in the blood. Uric acid is generated from purine, and it is eliminated out of the body via kidneys.

In kidney failure, impaired kidneys are unable to eliminate uric acid effectively. With the accumulation of this substance, gout will occur easily. In severe cases, it will affect patients’ walking ability.

To manage patients’ gout, patients should control purine-containing foods to prevent the production of uric acid. Besides, patients should also take some therapies to increase uric acid excretory amount.

Dialysis is the most common therapy to reduce high uric acid for kidney failure patients. Generally, after several times’ dialysis, patients’ gout can be eliminated obviously.

If patients’ kidney function level is higher than 10%, they still have chance to avoid dialysis. Learn a message to us, so we can determine whether you can use some other therapies.
