Fact of the day: Sleep Apnea linked with Acute Gout attacks

Hey Awesomites

Those who suffer from sleep apnea are usually overweight, and so may be those with acute gout exacerbations.

In addition to lower body temperature and nighttime dehydration, hypoxic patients of sleep apnea are at upto 50% higher risk of having acute attacks of gout at night. This is due to excess tissue damage and cell breakdown, both of which increase uric acid levels that may accumulate in joints to cause exacerbations !!
