¿La gota te hace sudar más?

¿Sabías que tienes entre 2 millones y 4 millones de glándulas sudoríparas en tu cuerpo? Aunque las mujeres generalmente tienen más glándulas sudoríparas, las glándulas de los hombres suelen ser más activas y sudamos más. El sudor mantiene la temperatura de tu cuerpo para evitar el sobrecalentamiento, ayuda a eliminar toxinas del cuerpo para apoyar el sistema inmunológico, contribuye a limpiar los poros y reduce el riesgo de desarrollar infecciones en la piel. Además, el sudor puede matar virus y bacterias peligrosas, ya que no pueden sobrevivir a temperaturas superiores a 98.6 grados Fahrenheit.

Como alguien que sufre de gota, debo admitir... ¡suelo sudar mucho! Y probablemente tú también lo hagas. De hecho, noté que empecé a sudar más de lo habitual alrededor del mismo tiempo en que me diagnosticaron la gota. En realidad, la condición de hiperhidrosis que se caracteriza por sudar más de lo normal o en exceso de lo que el cuerpo requiere para regular la temperatura corporal, enumera la diabetes, la tiroides, la menopausia, los tumores, así como La gota es un trastorno que puede desencadenar la hiperhidrosis..

He notado en mí mismo que a veces, si estaba nervioso, otras personas simplemente se sonrojaban o podían sentir un poco de calor, mientras que yo sudaba bastante fácilmente y esto me ponía aún más nervioso, haciendo que sudara aún más. ¡No es divertido, te lo aseguro! De hecho, los pacientes con gota mayores de 60 años y hombres, como grupo, experimentan la sudoración excesiva más frecuentemente.

But Does Sweat Help Excrete Uric Acid?

The answer is yes! We all know that gout is caused by high uric acid in the blood and the best way to flush uric acid out of your body is through urination but you can also remove uric acid through perspiration as well. They both help to eliminate toxins from your body. Do note that dehydration increases uric acid so that’s why it’s so important for the gout sufferer to drink lots of water and stay hydrated at all times.

Did you know that sweat has 99% water and urine has 95% water? Yet urination is more efficient at excreting uric acid compared to sweating. One study did state that all they found was 6.3% of uric acid excreted from the blood from sweating which is quite minimal.

Research has also shown that people who sweat more via exercise for example may have a lower risk of developing kidney stones. You sweat out more salt instead of having it form as stone in the kidneys and since people that sweat more usually drink more water which is another way to avoid kidney stones. Remember if you suffer from gout you are at a higher risk of developing kidney stones later in life.

What you want to watch out for is heavy sweating or sweating profusely which can be counterproductive and raise your uric acid levels. For example, strenuous exercise since by sweating more, this will cause you to urinate less and urinating is the preferable method of ridding your body of excess uric acid, so this is why uric acid levels can go higher. Staying well hydrated at all times is the key to limiting this.

Remember that if you sweat a lot, that this will cause your body to lose lots of fluid and electrolytes. I’ve emphasized it many times on this website, to always stay well hydrated and replace those electrolytes naturally. I like to drink coconut water when exercising to replenish my electrolytes or simply eat a banana, that will help too! If you hit the sauna, that’s fine but make sure to stay hydrated. The time it took me to write this post, I drank an entire bottle of water, time to urinate, talk to you next time!

      58 and suffer from gout attacks every 3-4 years … always when it gets hot, I increase my outdoor exercise, AND START DRINKING BEER AGAIN. So … I found this article. It appears that sweating is only good for gout IF you increase hydration significantly and especially with sports drinks.

      Currently suffering from a bout of gout. My 2nd in 4 years. Age 62.

      I think this one was caused by me not drinking enough water, but still keeping my beer intake up!

      I normally do high intensity cardio classes (spin bike, step and combat) 4-5 times a week and drink a full bottle of water each time. However, this year, I am actually working behind the front counter at my gym and normally at times when I exercise.

      As a result I have neglected my training patterns and, therefore, drinking much less water.

      Now suffering for it!

      Started drinking apple cider vinegar 2 nights ago and have noticed much improvement. Don’t know if it’s just a coincidence as I’m also taking 300mg allopurinol daily but not complaining.

      I take a 2 tablespoon shot with a cherry juice chaser. Also drinking 2 squeezed lemons in the morning and, of course, approximately 2 litres of water daily.

      Have been getting night sweats for the past week. Hoping it’s my body trying to get rid of the uric acid.

      Thank you for your great tips on treatments. Once it’s cleared up will be back into the training regime.
