Gout and pseudo-gout (Chondrocalcinosis) are frequent manifestations of metabolic disease in aging human.
Medical management ignores prevention, and relies on anti-inflammatory drugs.
High uric acid in blood can be treated specifically with drugs.
This is not the case for pseudo-gout, most frequent articular disease after 50.
Changing eating habits, especially with lower protein intake, is efficient in preventing bouts of these illnesses.
Appropriate physical activity can serve several purposes at the same time:
– Keeping mobility in old age.
– Articular health.
– Prevention of metabolic diseases, as such.
