Usually when drinking milk tea water, 18-year-old Zhang unfortunately contracted gout.On February 16, 18-year-old Zhang, accompanied by her classmates, went to the Gout and joint disease clinic of wuhan No. 3 Hospital in a wheelchair.Zhang said his left foot hurt so badly last night that he could not sleep all night. When he woke up in the morning, he found his left foot was so swollen that he was afraid to wear his shoes.When doctor Wang Du examined Zhang, he found that his left foot was badly swollen and the skin temperature was very high.Dr. Wang du conducted a detailed examination for him and found that his uric acid was as high as 712umol/L. In addition, the energy spectrum ct found that uric acid crystals deposited at the great toe of his left foot, which was finally diagnosed as gout arthritis at the great toe of his left foot.In the process of asking the medical history, it was found that Zhang liked drinking drinks very much, basically drinking milk tea cola as water.Doctor Wang Du formulated a set of personalized diet control plan and treatment plan for Zhang based on his personal situation.Doctor Wang Du explained that Zhang’s gout had a lot to do with his drinking habits.Because drinks contain a lot of fructose, which is metabolized in the body to produce uric acid.In addition, Zhang weighs 200 kg. Excessive obesity may also lead to metabolic disorder in the body, resulting in the increase of purine and uric acid, leading to the occurrence of gout.Doctor Wang Du reminds that with the improvement of people’s living standards, in recent years, more and more teenagers suffer from hyperuricemia and gout, the youngest age is only 12 years old.Most of them are related to obesity and bad living habits, and some are related to genetic factors, as well as hypertension, hyperlipidemia and abnormal blood sugar.For slightly higher serum uric acid level, improve living habits;If the blood uric acid level is greater than 540umol/l, or gout attacks more than twice a year, standardized uric acid lowering treatment is required.The most important thing for acute gout attack is early diagnosis, early medication and early treatment.Therefore, once teenagers have unexplained joint pain, they must go to professional medical institutions in time to avoid delayed treatment.(Reporter CAI Lu, Correspondent Jiang Hongying, Editor Shen Jing, Chen Shu)
