Condition Spotlight: Gout
Don't ignore the signs An estimated 9 million Americans are living with gout, but despite its prevalence, many misconceptions keep people from prioritizing getting the help they need to address this debilitating condition. Why is it important to not ignore signs and symptoms of gout? For starters Gout is a serious form of arthritis and if it becomes out of control it can lead to permanent damage. When the body makes more uric acid than it should, or the kidneys do not remove as much as they should, uric acid builds up and tiny needle-like crystals begin to form. These crystals can accumulate anywhere in the body (called tophi) and cause permanent joint damage. The buildup of uric acid also puts you at risk for having a gout flare — which involves inflammation, redness, swelling, tenderness and intense pain.
Three Gout Facts Uric acid can build up almost anywhere in the body. Damage from gout can occur even when the pain is gone. Gout can become out of control. It is important to keep track of your symptoms especially if you are taking gout medicine.
