Anyone who has consistently high levels of uric acid in the blood is at risk of having a gout attack. However, obesity—especially, centrally-located (visceral) obesity—greatly increases the risk. And even if you don’t develop gout, elevated uric acid has other negative effects:


✔️ It irritates the lining of your blood vessels causing a condition called 𝘦𝘯𝘥𝘰𝘵𝘩𝘦𝘭𝘪𝘢𝘭 𝘥𝘺𝘴𝘧𝘶𝘯𝘤𝘵𝘪𝘰𝘯, the first step leading to heart attacks and strokes.


✔️ It blocks the production of nitrous oxide, a gas that allows your blood vessels to relax. Thus, high uric acid also contributes to high blood pressure.


I meet people quite often who suffer with gout, and when I do I hand them this reference sheet.
