Stage 5 Kidney Disease with Gout: Causes and Treatments

Stage 5 Kidney Disease with Gout: Causes and TreatmentsStage 5 kidney disease means kidneys are functioning less than 15%, so diseased kidneys are unable to filter blood and remove waste products including uric acid normally. With the deposits of uric acid, gout occurs easily. Today, you can find out the causes and treatments of gout for kidney failure patients here.

What is gout?

Gout is one disorder due to extra uric acid building up in the blood. Normally, kidneys are responsible for eliminating excessive amount of uric acid from the body timely. Gout commonly causes pain, swelling and redness in one or more joints. Some patients with gout may even have fever, cold, headache, nausea, palpitation, and some other symptoms.

How does stage 5 kidney disease cause gout?

In end stage, kidneys have nearly lost all of their function, and the excretion of uric acid declines largely. Then, extra uric acid builds up in the blood gradually. Besides, the use of some medications such as thiazide diuretics, furosemide and aspirin will inhibit renal tubules from excreting uric acid, resulting in gout. From this analysis, we can know the attacks of gout for patients with end stage renal disease is mainly caused by low kidney function and misuse of medications.

How to treat gout due to stage 5 kidney disease?

Lifestyle factors and medical therapies can reduce the risk of gout and treat it. They are eating a correct diet plan, quit drinking much alcohol or sugar-sweetened soft drinks, taking vitamin C supplements, accepting some treatments that can help improve kidney filtration rate. Besides, we should know uric acid is generated from purine, so patients should avoid high-purine foods.

As for the detailed treatment option, it should depend on patients’ illness condition and the severity of their gout and other problems. If you want to get personal diet and treatment option, you can email to or leave a message below directly.
