Can Gout Be Caused by Stress?
Yes, stress, or any extreme emotional state, can trigger gout.
More Info: Gout, a form of arthritis, is caused by an excess secretion of uric acid in the bloodstream. Uric acid, a by product of the body's digestive and waste systems at work, is usually dissolved in the blood and then passed out of the body through the kidneys. When the body produces too much or fails to dispose of enough uric acid, the uric acid crystallizes in joints within the extremities of the body. The body increases the production of white blood cells to fight off the uric acid which it has determined as a foreign substance causing the area where crystals have formed to become inflamed.
Health Impact of Stress
Stress has also been shown to deplete vitamin B5 from the body. Vitamin B5 helps the body to excrete excess uric acid from the body. Therefore, stress may trigger a gout attack.
While it is impossible to completely eliminate stress from life, a person can minimize its effects by meditation, prayer, or even exercise. Diet can play a big role in limiting the harmful effects of stress and gout. Incorporate foods that contain unsaturated fats and a high concentration of fatty acids into your diet. Since stress depletes vitamin B5 from the body, taking vitamin supplements may also help stave off a gout attack. Gout is a serious condition that can cause long term damage to joints and tendons. If gout is left untreated it may also lead to heart and kidney disease.

The importance of vitamin and mineral uptake cannot be emphasized enough. Healthy cells are vital to uric acid maintenance. They are essential to all living things as a source for vitality, cell protection, balanced metabolism, and good health in general. With few exceptions, vitamins are not primarily manufactured by the body, so they must be obtained by way of healthy food selections and dietary supplements. Unfortunately, obtaining enough through our diet has become increasingly difficult. Utilizing a vitamin supplement specifically tailored to the gout sufferer's needs such as extra B5 Pantothenic Acid as mentioned in the article above is of utmost importance. Gout sufferers should also avoid extra Iron, high-dose Vitamin C, and Niacin found in regular vitamins. All three can fire up the joints in pill form making a tailored formula key to a vitamin's success for the gout sufferer.
