Gout and Vitamin D

Reasons to believe that Gout is associated with low vitamin D

  1. Acute gouty arthritis is seasonal. 1998
    Increased by 32% in Spring (when vitamin D levels are the lowest)
  2. Clinical Trials for Gout and Vitamin D
    Study of Vitamin D and Uric Acid Lowering on Kidney and Blood Vessel Function
    Good: 50,000 IU weekly, unfortunately: D2, not D3
  3. Vitamin D reduces Rheumatoid arthritis 74 items
  4. Vitamin D reduces Pain 104 items
  5. Vitamin D reduces Inflammation category listing with 82 items
  6. Higher incidence of gout with age (less vitamin D and gastric acid as you get older)
  7. Increased gout at higher Latitude (Gout and Goutiness a 1899 book
  8. Increased gout with soda pop
    JAMA study from 2010.2 women >2 cans of soda daily 2X more likely to develop gout (Note that soda decreases vitamin D levels)
  9. 2X more Gout if Dark Skin
    WikiPedia gout is twice as likely in African American males as it is in European Americans
  10. Gout and Calcium and vitamin D
    Calcium and Vitamin D. The relationship of gout to calcium and vitamin D is complex.
    Gout is associated with insulin resistance, low vitamin D levels, and inflammation, all of which interfere with muscle synthesis.
    One study has found that patients with gout have lower vitamin D3 levels correlated with higher urate.
  11. Increased gout recently (along with increased number of people being vitamin D deficient)- both blacks and whites
    New Zealand 2009 publication

    Gout incidence has been increasing (while vitamin D has been decreasing)

  12. Gout has increased, but appears to be correlated with obesity/ hypertension 2011
    note: both obesity and hypertension are associated with low vitamin D

Low gastric acid ==>poor digestion ==> more uric acid ==> gout

   (Hypothesis by VitaminDWiki)
FACT: Gout increases with age
FACT: Gastric Acid/digestion decreases with age
FACT: Coffee increases gastric acid
FACT: Coffee decreases gout (known since 1672)
FACT: Vitamin D increased digestion
FACT: Vitamin D decrease Gout
CONCLUSION: Improved digestion ==> reduced gout
Hypothesis: Other ways to Increase digestion, such as HCL or digestive enzymes, will also decrease gout
Note: Vitamin D reduces gout by at least the following ways:

  1. improving digestion
  2. improving kidney function
  3. reducing pain
  4. reducing inflammation
