Cases of gout in children are extremely rare. If a child does develop gout, it is usually because of an inherited condition that affects their kidneys or uric acid production levels. Certain types of cancer, such as leukemia, may increase your child's risk, too.

Can vitamin K relieve chronic pain?
If you have chronic pain, toss a spinach or arugula salad for a jolt of vitamin K—a nutrient with potential pain-soothing properties, according to some preliminary research. Vitamin K also helps maintain strong bones and healthy joints. In one study, older adults with ample blood levels of K were less likely to develop osteoarthritis, compared to a low-in-K control group.
You can get all the K you need from dark leafy greens: a cup of raw spinach has 145 micrograms (132 percent of what you need for the day). Caution: Vitamin K also helps with blood clotting, so if you're taking blood thinners, check with your doc before boosting your K intake.
How can I relieve chronic musculoskeletal pain (CMP)?
Medication is one way to ease chronic musculoskeletal pain (CMP). But it isn't the only way. Changing some of your bad habits for the better is another. We're talking about a healthier diet, more exercise, and sound sleep. Making these and other lifestyle changes puts you in the driver's seat when it comes to controlling your pain. Overcome your bad habits, and you might live longer, too. One study found certain not-so-healthy behaviors increased mortality risk in people with CMP, and changing those practices lowered it.
