Gout - just what exactly is this condition...


Gout - just what exactly is this condition?

1/ The third most common form of arthritis, gout causes severe pain and swelling in joints

2/ It usually affects only one or two joints at a time. The ball of the big toe is the most common site.

3/Gout is caused by the buildup of the waste product uric acid in the body.

4/ Most people can process uric acid, but if they can't, it crystallises in the body's joints and causes swelling.

5/The new drug (in the previous story) targets and blocks uric to crystallise.

6/Existing drugs do not target those enzymes, but work to reduce the buildup of uric acid once it has crystallised.

I hope you read and enjoyed the previous post about a new drug being introduced from New Zealand to help gout sufferers
