Rheumatic and Gout Myth

12 05 2008

There’s a myth said that rheumatics caused by high uric acid level in body.
But that’s wrong!! Gout is only a kind of rheumatic (there are about 100 kinds of rheumatic).

There’s other myth said that rheumatic caused by seafood. That’s wrong too!! Not all kinds of rheumatic caused by seafood, only gout that caused by seafood. Gout caused by high purine level which was contained in seafood and innards. But, the other kinds of rheumatic was not caused by seafood.

There’s a lot of myths about rheumatic and gout. But don’t trust it directly.
The fact is we have to take care of our health in order to avoid all diseases. And one of the way to get there is by consuming the supplement for bones and joint, that were certain must in the right dose, like hilo milk.





Mitos Rematik dan Asam Urat

9 05 2008

Ada mitos yang mengatakan bahwa penyakit rematik disebabkan oleh tingginya kadar asam urat dalam tubuh. Ternyata mitos tersebut salah! Asam urat hanyalah salah satu jenis rematik (Ada sekitar 100 jenis penyakit rematik).

Ada juga mitos yang mengatakan bahwa penyakit rematik disebabkan oleh makanan laut alias seafood. Mitos tersebut juga salah. Penyakit rematik yang disebabkan oleh konsumsi seafood hanyalah asam urat (nama lainnya: gout). Asam urat memang disebabkan oleh tingginya kadar purin (yang terdapat dalam seafood dan jeroan). Tetapi penyakit rematik yang lain tidak disebabkan oleh konsumsi makanan laut atau seafood.

Memang banyak mitos yang beredar mengenai penyakit rematik dan asam urat. Tetapi jangan langsung percayai kebenarannya.
Yang pasti faktanya adalah kita harus menjaga kesehatan tubuh dengan baik agar terhindar dari segala macam penyakit. Salah satunya adalah dengan mengkonsumsi suplemen untuk tulang dan sendi (yang tentu saja harus dalam dosis sesuai) seperti susu HiLo.

Gout (Part 1)

30 04 2008

I’m trying to share information about gout.
Hope it’s useful for all of you.

Gout is caused by too much uric acid in blood stream so it must be discard to other organ
like kidney and joint.

High level of uric acid caused by:

  • production of uric acid in blood is increasing caused by too much consuming purine rich foods like seafood, or
  • Body’s ability to excrete the uric acid is decreasing, caused by lack function of kidney or too much consuming alcohol.
  • Normal uric acid level in blood stream :
    – Male : 3.5 – 7.2 mg/dL
    – Female : 2.6 – 6.0 mg/dL

    See you in the next article about gout.
    So, always consuming hilo milk to avoid gout disease.





    Asam Urat (Part 1)

    28 04 2008

    Aku mau mencoba berbagi informasi seputar asam urat nih…
    Semoga bermanfaat 🙂

    Asal mula terjadinya asam urat:
    Asam urat terjadi karena kadar asam urat yang berlebihan dalam darah, sehingga harus dibuang ke organ tubuh lainnya seperti ginjal dan sendi.

    Asam urat yang tinggi itu disebabkan karena:

  • Produksi asam urat dalam darah meningkat (bisa karena terlalu banyak makan makanan yang mengandung purin seperti seafood), atau
  • Pengeluaran asam urat tubuh menurun, yang disebabkan oleh gangguan ginjal, ataupun terlalu banyak mengkonsumsi alkohol.
  • Kadar asam urat dalam darah yang normal:
    Pria dewasa: 3.5 – 7.2 mg/dl
    Wanita dewasa: 2.6-6.0 mg/dl

    Sampai jumpa di postingan berikutnya mengenai asam urat
    Konsumsi terus susu HiLo untuk mencegah penyakit asam urat!!!

    Are you a kind of person that easily get mad or offended?
    Maybe you are a person that lack of vitamin B-12.

    Vitamin B12 or cobalamin very important for our health,
    especially for our growth and nervous system.
    So, if you lack of vitamin B12, it will harm yourself, because it blocked your growth, increase stupidity, and make you easily get mad and offended.

    Source of vitamin B12 are animal’s product, seafood, eggs, liver, soy beans, and of course Hilo milk.

    You have to start consuming vitamin B12 earlier.

    So, It’s better to consume Hi-lo milk regularly. And, start right now!!
