How does gout cause kidney disease?

The uric acid crystals deposited in kidneys can become large stones. These stones are very painful and can cause permanent kidney damage in the following two ways:

1.The uric acid crystals can form an obstruction that prevents your kidneys from removing wastes and causing infection.

The crystals in kidneys can cause inflammation in kidneys directly. Uncontrolled inflammation can cause scarring of kidney tissues.

Once the kidneys are impaired,they will fail to remove creatinine from body adequately, thus resulting in high creatinine.

Firstly,the patients should develop a well-balanced diet. A diet for the patients with gout induced kidney disease should be low in purine, protein, sodium, phosphorus and potassium.

Secondly, it is to control gout effectively. By doing this, it can slow renal function deterioration.
