Gout is a complex and common form of arthritis amounting to 10 million cases per year in India. The disorder normally affects the big toe first.

What is Gout?

Gout is a common type of Arthritis caused by a build-up of uric acid (a breakdown product of purines) crystals in the joints. It is characterized by intense pain, swelling & stiffness in a joint. The condition typically affects the joint in the great toe initially thereby spreading to ankles, elbows, knees etc. It has also been related to an increased incidence of cardiovascular & metabolic disease.

The 4 stages of Gout are:

Asymptomatic hyperuricemia: It is the preliminary stage of gout wherein the blood uric acid levels are high causing the formation of crystals to begin. It is devoid of any noticeable symptoms.

Acute gout: It is the result of any incident (a night of heavy drinking) which causes a spike in the uric acid level. This triggers an attack of gout. The condition may last only for a week before recurring within a year.

Interval gout: It is the time period between the attacks. Despite there being no visible gout, low-level inflammation may be damaging the joints below surface-level.

Chronic tophaceous gout: This is the final stage which develops among people whose uric acid level remains high through the year. The attacks become more frequent & serious.

Obesity, Diabetes, Hypertension, Lymphoma, Chronic Kidney Disease, Psoriasis, such underlying conditions can be the risk factors of the disease

Complications of Gout
