Recommended gout treatment options and medications for Encinitas area patients

Recommended Gout Treatment Options and Medications for Encinitas Area Patients

At Seaside Rheumatology and Wellness Center, we believe in providing patients in the area of Encinitas, CA with a wide range of treatment options for a number of conditions. Men and women who have been diagnosed with gout but are having trouble managing it with their current medications may want to speak to a professional about alternative options. Gout treatment can vary from patient to patient for many reasons, so taking into account the different factors at play is just one specialty of Dr. Peter Lloyd.

What is gout?

Many patients who have inflammatory arthritis may be dealing with gout. Gout can present itself in many ways and can cause kidney disease, Tophi, and painful arthritis. It is common in men after the age of 40 and women after the age of 60, though some patients will notice the onset of their condition sooner, especially if they have a genetic predisposition for it.

What treatment options are available for gout?

Our team strongly encourages patients to not only get a proper diagnosis but then consider the varying medications and treatment options available for this condition. Some common considerations include:

  • Lifestyle changes – each patient has different triggers that may cause problems with worsening gout. This may include injury, stress, or alcohol consumption. Certain alterations to one’s lifestyle may reduce flare-ups.
  • Medications – there are a range of certain medications that can be used for patients with chronic gout which requires daily treatment. These medications may include Febuxostat, Probenecid, Pegloticase, and Allopurinol.
  • Steroids – acute gout might be managed with certain steroids, either oral steroid medications or joint steroid injections.
