The manifestation of signs of gout and the treatment of the disease depends on the intensity of the development of the pathology. Diagnostic measures begin with the collection of anamnesis. The doctor determines the presence of chronic diseases, genetic predisposition, provoking factors, lifestyle and eating habits. The signs and treatment for gout in men and women are similar. Laboratory and instrumental research consists of:
- blood tests (general and biochemical);
- general urine analysis;
- studies of synovial fluid;
- studies of the level of uric acid;
- determination of the level of urate in serum;
- bacteriology of synovial fluid;
- joint puncture (as prescribed by a doctor);
- MRI of the joints;
- ultrasound of the joints;
- MRI of the kidneys;
- ultrasound of the kidneys.
For the disease of gout, treatment is prescribed depending on the test results obtained. The therapy is prescribed by a rheumatologist. Gout cannot be completely cured. With the help of supportive therapy and adherence to medical recommendations, nutritional control, painful attacks, their intensity and regularity of occurrence, can be stopped. For gout, the clinical guidelines are pharmacological and non-pharmacological techniques.
