What is Gout

                              What is Gout

So what is Gout.

The body either makes too much uric acid or it cannot excrete it from the body in large enough quantities.

Uric acid is a by product of purines being broken down by the body's
digestive and waste system , which in turn breaks down and builds up
body and food tissues through food intake.

Generally the uric acid is dissolved in the blood and also flushed out through the kidneys.

When the Uric acid levels are high, it is known as Hyperuricaemia.

What is gout - Gout is also called Metabolic Arthritis.

The Uric deposits then move to the extremities of the body causing
an inflammatory reaction in and around the tendon areas.

This inflammatory reaction is due to the body producing white blood
cells to combat the Uric acid intruder. When this happens the inflamed
area also produces heat.

The Uric acid appears in the form of needle like crystals which tear
into the synovial sacks and cartilage between joints.
