Gout and the Kidney
Thousands of people in the US have gout. Fortunately, not only is this preventable, it is also reversible! That’s right! First, let’s go over what causes gout. Gout is caused when too much uric acid builds up in the body. Uric acid comes from protein we eat and should be disposed of by the kidney. If the kidney can’t dispose of the uric acid, then it builds up in the body.
Medical doctors try their best to help those with gout by giving a drug that lowers uric acid levels. Read the next post to see how Naturopathic doctors can help you resole these symptoms for good.
