What is Gout?

Gout is a common form of arthritis, also known as Gouty Arthritis. It is a painful, chronic disease that causes uric acid levels to build up in the body. Uric acid is created when the body breaks down chemicals called purines. People suffering from gout have a harder time filtering the uric acid out of their bodies. Uric acid accumulates in the joints forming sharp crystalline deposits, causing inflammation, severe pain, and if left untreated damage to the joints and bones. Gout is known to apear in sudden, severe attacks that cause pain, swelling, and redness in one or more joints, most often in the big toe. These attacks commonly take place in the evening, leaving the sufferer in such pain that even the touch of bed sheet can be excruciating.

As gout progresses, more damaging symptoms appear. Urate crystals begin to form under the skin (tophi). These tophi form throughout the body especially in fingers, hands and elbows, feet, and ankles. These nodules become swollen and tender during gout attacks and cause deformities in the affected areas. Kidney stones can also form from the urate crystals.

Gout can affect anyone of any age. Men are more likely to develop gout earlier than women, usually between the ages of 30 and 50. Women generally develop the condition after menopause.

Risk factors for developing gout include:

  • Family history
  • Diet- diets rich in red meat and shellfish, beverages sweetened with sugars and fructose, alcohol, especially beer, increase levels of uric acid
  • Weight- being overweight increases the amount of uric acid the body produces
  • Medical conditions- high blood pressure, diabetes, metabolic syndrome, heart, and kidney diseases increase risks of developing gout
  • Certain medications

One infusion treatment of Krystexxa every other week for six months, can safely and effectively remove years of gout-caused uric acid build up. Reducing signs and symptoms of gout will greatly improve the quality of life for sufferers.
