Preventing Gout Attacks and Treating Gout with diet for Kidney Patients

Episode 100: Preventing Gout Attacks and Treating Gout with diet for Kidney Patients. Gout is a form of arthritis characterized by severe pain, redness, and tenderness in joints. Pain and inflammation occur when too much uric acid crystallizes and deposits in the joints. Gout attack symptoms include severe pain, redness, and swelling in joints, often the big toe. Gout Attacks can come suddenly, often at night, and can lead to kidney stones. Renal Dietitian Jen Hernandez and Kidney Health Coach James Fabin discuss using diet to prevent gout attacks for patients with Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD).
