Musculoskeletal disorders (MSDs) are medical condition mostly caused by work related occupations and working environment, affecting patients’ muscles, joints, tendons, ligaments and nerves and developing over time. According to a community sample of 73 females and 32 males aged 85 and over underwent a standardised examination at home, musculoskeletal pain was reported by 57% of those interviewed(*).
Types of Musculo-Skeletal disorders in elder
3. Rheumatoid Arthritis
4. Polymalagia Arthritis
5. Cervical myleopathy and spinal canal stenosis
7. Low back pain
Gout mostly effected one joint is an acute and recurrent condition of arthritis as a result of uric acid building up in blood, inducing joint inflammation.
Researchers found that long-term moderate coffee consumption is associated with a lower risk of incident gout, particular in women(139). According to the joint study led by the Naresuan University Hospital, there is an associations between vitamin C, alcohol,coffee, tea, milk and yogurt with uric acid and the risk of gout(140).
In Japanese men and women aged 49-76 years, "There were inverse associations of coffee consumption with serum UA concentrations and hyperuricemia in men regardless of adjustment for covariates" Said by Dr. Pham NM and colleagues at the Kyushu University(141).
2. Maintaining adequate fluid intake, particular at night
Dehydrate is associated with the increased risk of gout, particular at night time, epidemiological study suggested(142). Drinking water or skim milk can improve gout control, according to findings from two studies that highlight the important contribution of lifestyle factors on gout prevention and management(144), and recent use of diuretics is associated with a significantly increased risk for recurrent gouty arthritis(143).
3. Weight reduction
Obesity cause cause pressure to the joint. Obesity is not only a risk factor for incident gout but is associated with an earlier age at gout onset(147). According to the a total of 543 cases of juvenile gout from the Ho-Ping Gout Database and 5269 gouty cases with onset age of 40 to 50 years, family history of overweight and hereditary background are significantly associated to increased risk of juvenile gout(145).
Dr. Lee J and the research team at the The Catholic University of Korea, said," Gout is a chronic inflammatory disease the development of which is associated with obesity-induced metabolic abnormalities."(146).
4. Dietary and life style pattern changes
a. Reduce alcohol
Alcohol intake is strongly associated with an increased risk of gout. This risk varies substantially according to type of alcoholic beverage: beer confers a larger risk than spirits, whereas moderate wine drinking does not increase the risk(150). The association between excessive alcohol consumption and risk of gout has been suspected since ancient times which was confirmed by the study by the Harvard Medical School, Boston(149).
Unfortunate to alcohol drinker, regardless of type of alcoholic beverage, episodic alcohol consumption,was associated with an increased risk of recurrent gout attacks, including potentially with moderate amounts(151).
b. Reduce intake of foods with high levels of purine, such as sardines, herring, kidney and sweetbreads, shrimp, etc.(152). According to the Third National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey, in the review of the data from 14,809 participants (6,932 men and 7,877 women) ages 20 years and older for the years 1988-1994, higher levels of meat and seafood consumption are associated with higher serum levels of uric acid(153) and sugar-sweetened soft drink consumption is associated with serum uric acid levels and frequency of hyperuricemia(154).
c. Diet with foods to prevent gout
Dairy products, vegetables, nuts, legumes, fruits (less sugary ones), and whole grains are healthy choices for the comorbidities of gout and may also help prevent gout by reducing insulin resistance(156). Coffee and vitamin C(155) supplementation could be considered as preventive measures as these can lower urate levels, as well as the risk of gout and some of its comorbidities(156).
Diet with foods such as cherries and strawberries to prevent gout(157), as evidence of the impact of strawberry intake on gout has been report(157).
5. Reduce intake of medications which can cause gout and recurrent gout by reviewing them with your doctor, as certain medicine such as Thiazide and loop diuretics(158).
Regular physical exercise is associated to reduce risk of gout(159).
“Exercises to relieve gout should be done steady and cautiously as to avoid further irritation to the joints. The best exercises for gout are range of motion types: strength training, stretching and building endurance. Yoga is an exercise that incorporates all four; however, there are other exercises that can be done individually also” According to the article of How to Exercise If You Have Gout(160).
