About Gout

Gout is a chronic, metabolic disease affecting approximately 6 million Americans and is the most common form of inflammatory arthritis in men. The underlying cause of gout is hyperuricemia, a condition characterized by elevated levels of uric acid in the blood.  

A gout attack, or "flare," occurs when excess uric acid in the body begins to form crystals, triggering an inflammatory response in the joints or soft tissue causing extreme discomfort. While gout can affect several different joints, including elbows, knees and wrists, patients most commonly experience attacks in the big toe. The pain of a gout attack may interfere with everyday activities, including work and family events.

In addition to recommended diet and lifestyle changes, experts recognize that achieving and maintaining a healthy uric acid level in the body of less than 6.0 mg/dL can help reduce the risk of future attacks.
