Gout and Exercise

  1. 1. GOUT AND EXERCISE THE IMPORTANCE OF EXERCISE FOR THE GOUT SUFFERER
  2. 2. “If You Have Gout, You Should Be Exercising. Period.”
  3. 3. You don’t need a gym to exercise, you can do it from the comfort of your own home or outdoors where it costs you nothing. We all know the benefits of exercise like improving the fitness of your heart, lungs, bone strength, mental well- being, improves energy levels and your sleep!
  4. 4. “But how can i exercise when i suffer from gout and my joints are so sensitive?”
  5. 5. Exercise will keep you in shape, helping you maintain an ideal healthy weight, will increase your energy and will help you build strong bones, joints and muscles which gout slowly deteriorates over time.
  6. 6. Since your joints hurt, that makes you less likely to get up moving or exercising. This inactivity makes you less flexible, weakens your joints and muscles which can result in bone loss by the way intensifying the painful symptoms of gout.
  7. 7. At the end, exercise will promote faster healing from gout attacks. A 2008 study on gout and exercise stated that men who ran 5 miles per day had 50% less occurrence of developing gout than least active men.
  8. 8. You should not employ crash diets or over- exercise causing rapid weight loss. Losing weight too quickly can actually have the opposite effect and cause your uric acid levels to rise.
  9. 9. Rule #1 If you are suffering from a gout attack and/or your joint is inflamed regardless if it’s due to a gout attack or not, do not exercise! Exercising during a gout attack and/or when a joint is inflamed will worsen your condition by causing you more pain and lengthening your inflammation.
  10. 10. Listen to your body signals and only exercise when the flare up, gout attack or inflammation is over and begin gradually, building up slowly again.
  11. 11. Exercise has no effect whatsoever on breaking up uric acid crystals or tophi for that matter but it lowers uric acid levels and keeps them low.
