Gout & snoring

by Brian

I hadn't had a real gout attack in about ten years after I lost about thirty pounds. Before that was another story. I snore badly. One night, the room temperature in my room went very hight and the air was extremely dry. I awoke with gout and an extremely dry mouth. I had been in deep sleep and snoring most of the night. I was extremely dehydrated which by itself would raise my uric acid levels and lead to uric acid crystallization. I am in recovery. I am getting several room water evaporators (like you use with a cold) to increase the water contest in my air so it is less dry. That should reduce or prevent the dehydration caused by snoring in a room filled with hot dry air. If you're a gout sufferer, you might consider raising the humidity level in your sleeping quarters.
