Is Gout Associated with DialysisGout is a type of arthritis, which can cause attacks of pain and swelling in one or more joints. Recently some dialysis patients complain about gout. Is gout associated with dialysis?

Kidney failure patients run a high risk of gout.

When your kidneys fail to work, they are not able to remove the waste products and excessive fluid from the body. As a result, waste products such as uric acid build up in the blood. When their concentration is very high, they crystallize and deposit in the joints, leading to joint inflammation. Besides, some medicine you take for kidney failure such as water tablets (diuretics) and cyclosporin can also cause gout.

Dialysis patients may have pseudogout.

Dialysis is a common used treatment for kidney failure patients to cleanse waste products and excessive fluid from the body. Generally speaking, with dialysis, there are not so many uric acids in the blood, so it is less likely for dialysis patients to develop gout. But some dialysis patients may have pseudogout, which has similar symptoms to gout, but it affects large or medium sized joints such as knees and shoulders. It is caused by the deposition of calcium pyrophosphate crystals. This can be the result of renal bone disease.

Treatment for gout

When you have gout, you should talk with your doctor to find out what on earth causes your gout. The traditional treatment for gout is to use anti-inflammatory drugs such as NSAIDS. But those medicine sometimes can cause further damage to the kidneys, so do not use them without the instruction of doctor. The main drug therapy for gout in kidney patients is colchicine. Besides, you can use allopurinol to reduce the uric acid levels in the blood to prevent further attacks of acute gout.

The fundamental way is to improve your kidney function to remove uric acid and some other waste products from the blood.
