Pro Athletes Team Up to Champion Gout Awareness
Date:7/9/2013

an itemprop="name">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 patients suffer from the painful symptoms of acute gout, commonly known as flares, and the underlying chronic condition, which is a buildup of uric acid called hyperuricemia. Whether it is treating and managing gout flares or lowering uric acid levels, I encourage patients to take an active role in their treatment and to talk openly and often with their doctor about their gout."

Gout is a crystal-induced arthritis. While gout is more common in men, women also can suffer from gout and are most often affected after menopause. Gout flares are characterized by intense pain, redness, swelling and heat in the affected joints, most commonly in the big toe, caused by a buildup of uric acid. According to the 2012 American College of Rheumatology Guidelines for managing gout, a goal in treatment of gout is to reduce the uric acid level in the blood to below 6 mg/dL. Excessive uric acid may lead to crystals forming and building up in joints, possibly leading to joint damage over time. Gout may be managed through diet and lifestyle changes along with medications, as needed, to treat and reduce the risk of gout flares and lower uric acid levels.

"Champions for Gout Awareness gives me the chance to share my gout experience. For me, it's about educating myself about gout and working closely with my doctor. I hope Alonzo, David, Kevin and I can inspire others who live with gout to learn as much as they can about the condition and, most importantly, to work closely with their doctors to manage gout flares as well as working to target healthy uric acid levels," notes Smith.
