Gout is a specific type of arthritis that causes inflammation and pain in one or multiple joints. It often begins suddenly.

The Big Toe Joint is the most common place where gout occurs. The pain can bring you to your knees.

Gout occurs when crystals of uric acid, a naturally occurring substance in the body, collect in the joint.

The joint often becomes red, warm, and swollen. A common place for a gout attack to occur is within the foot and ankle.

The foot is a complex part of the body consisting of 26 bones and 33 joints. Gout may attack any number of these joints at any given time without a person ever knowing they have gout.

The average age of onset for gout is between the ages of 30 and 50.

Causes of gout include: genetics, obesity, certain medications (diuretics), diets rich in purines (red meat, shellfish, beer).

The diagnosis is often made by sending a sample of joint fluid that is obtained by a physician with a simple procedure while an area of the foot is numb.

X rays and blood work also aid in the diagnosis.

Gout is easily treatable with diet modifications and medication in order to prevent the production and collection of uric acid crystals within the body.

Foods that are rich in purines, which are a precursor to uric acid, should be avoided.

If you think you have gout, call us at (your phone number) to get it evaluated.
