What is "gout"?

Gout is a type of arthritis that occurs when there is a buildup of uric acid in the bloodstream, leading to the formation of crystals in the joints. Uric acid is a waste product formed from the breakdown of natural substances found in many foods called purines. These crystals cause sudden and intense pain, swelling, and tenderness, typically in the big toe, although other joints can also be affected. Gout attacks often occur suddenly and can be triggered by factors such as diet, alcohol consumption, obesity, or certain medications. Treatment for gout usually involves medications to relieve pain and reduce inflammation, as well as lifestyle changes such as dietary changes and weight loss to help prevent future attacks.
