With the continuous development of the economy, people’s living standards are also constantly improving, and various diseases in life have begun to emerge one after another. A few years ago, people were still resisting the “three highs”, but now they are also resisting the “fourth high”.
What is “fourth highest”? The fourth highest is high uric acid. Uric acid is the final product of purines. Under normal conditions, the production and excretion of uric acid are balanced. When the production and excretion of uric acid are unbalanced, it will lead to an increase in blood uric acid, which in turn induces gout. The continuous increase of uric acid level will also lead to a series of complications, such as cardiovascular and cerebrovascular diseases and kidney diseases, so it is very important to control uric acid within the normal range.
Reminder: When sleeping at night, there are 4 manifestations in the body, or the manifestation of “excessive” uric acid
1. Frequent nocturnal urination
Under normal circumstances, we do not urinate more than twice at night. Excessive urination, or an abnormality similar to poor urination. It may also be caused by high uric acid. Too much uric acid damages our kidneys in the first place.
Many people’s kidney problems can be caused by too much uric acid in the body. High uric acid can cause too much uric acid, which in turn affects kidney health, resulting in decreased kidney function. Therefore, urination will be affected, the frequency of urination will increase during sleep, and even problems such as foamy urine will appear.
thirsty while sleeping The phenomenon is related to many reasons. For example, people with diabetes, especially those with congenital diabetes, have the typical “three more and one less” symptoms, which are easily manifested during the day and night. They are also prone to thirst and urination, which can even interfere with sleep.
But if your blood sugar levels are in good shape, you will always wake up thirsty in the middle of the night. What often happens can be the body’s “self-help” reaction, which can be related to high levels of uric acid in the body, which is caused by the inability to excrete it and putting too much pressure on the kidneys. At this time, we should pay attention to the fact that once gout occurs frequently, and there are no bad habits before going to bed at night, such as drinking alcohol, excessive exercise, etc., we should pay attention to whether the condition worsens. It is best to go to the hospital for examination in time to avoid complications.
3. Low back pain
Many people may think that low back pain Only suitable for middle-aged and elderly people, but in the past two years, the situation of low back pain has become younger and younger. Some people who have experienced low back pain should know that low back pain is very uncomfortable and they cannot find a comfortable position whether sitting or lying down. In addition to excluding these factors, we should also consider the cause of uric acid. If uric acid is too high, it can affect kidney function. The kidneys and waist are closely related, and excessive uric acid may lead to the phenomenon of low back pain.
4. Joint pain
During sleep, our The body is in a low metabolic state. If there are symptoms of joint pain at this time, we must pay attention. This is because when uric acid is elevated, crystalline salts are formed, which not only damages the joints and other parts, but also deposits large amounts of crystalline salts in the joints, causing joint pain. At this time, if you do not pay attention to the continuous accumulation of crystalline salt, the so-called “gout” will form, especially the joint pain in the fingers and toes is the most obvious. Therefore, during sleep, if you are often awakened by pain in these joints, you should be highly alert to whether the uric acid level in the body is elevated at this time.
So, if the above 4 manifestations often appear when sleeping, you need to pay attention in time, so as not to be caused by uric acid caused by the rise. The increase in uric acid in life does not appear suddenly, and some small “habits” that persist for a long time may affect the uric acid level.
These three unobtrusive “little habits”, or the factors that cause high uric acid, should be corrected in time
1. Stay up late
Staying up late is a habit of today’s people. Many people are so addicted to watching TV, playing games and watching small videos at night that they even forget to eat and sleep. But often staying up late will not only affect the quality of sleep, but also disturb the biological clock. In the long run, the body will only become more and more tired, and the efficiency of work and study will also decrease. Often staying up late also increases anaerobic metabolism. When a large amount of lactic acid is accumulated in the body, it is difficult to excrete uric acid, which will lead to an increase in uric acid, which is also a major threat to health.
2. Love to eat seafood and drink beer
Many coastal cities like to eat seafood and drink beer, which is a kind of enjoyment. But this kind of enjoyment has great health risks. It is easy to lead to excessive uric acid in the body, resulting in the occurrence of gout. The culprit is because we drink too much beer, and beer contains a lot of purines. The high uric acid content in the body increases the burden of renal excretion, which will lead to the occurrence of high uric acid. Crystals that form in the joints are prone to gout. In addition, although seafood contains many nutrients, seafood contains as many purines as beer, so it is easy to cause high uric acid index and gout.
3. I don’t like drinking water
In life, Many people do not like to drink water, or only drink water when they are thirsty, which is a very bad habit. When the body signals thirst, it is already in a state of extreme dehydration. At this time, even though the drinking water can be absorbed by the body, the proportion is very small. The less water in the body, the higher the content of uric acid, which is not conducive to the excretion of uric acid in the urine, so it is easy to make the situation worse.
Therefore, for patients with high uric acid, they usually need to add enough water, which is also very helpful to promote uric acid excretion, To a certain extent, it can also play a role in reducing uric acid. At the same time, we should also pay attention to keeping the joints warm to avoid the formation of uric acid crystals caused by low temperature, which can also effectively avoid the attack of gout. In addition, it is also important for patients with high uric acid to develop a good diet and living habits in their daily life.
