Pro Athletes Team Up for Gout Education
Date:9/30/2013

Deerfield, IL (PRWEB) September 30, 2013

For Emmitt Smith, Pro Football running back legend, as an athlete, pain was a part of the job. Yet he describes a gout flare as a level of pain like nothing else he had felt before. Along with an estimated 8 million Americans, Smith suffers from gout, a serious form of arthritis, and he’s joining a team of sports stars to share his gout story.

Now I know it’s the most common form of inflammatory arthritis in men over the age of 40, and that I have to work with my doctor to help manage my gout.”

Basketball star Alonzo Mourning, pitching great David Wells and stock car racing crew chief Kevin “Bono” Manion – champions in their own sports – are joining Smith in the common goal of connecting with people to reinforce the importance of the patient/doctor partnership in more actively managing the disease.

Gout is a chronic, progressive condition, that may get worse over time,” says Theodore Fields, M.D., F.A.C.P., director of the Rheumatology Faculty Practice Plan at the Hospital for Special Surgery in New York City. “Many gout p
