The Gout Blog by Gout Aware

What is Gout
is one of the oldest and most painful forms of Arthritis known to man.

Related to Kidney disease, and also Heart Failure.

Gout is caused by excess uric acid in the body that the kidneys were unable to flush out.

The Uric acid then forms into barbed Crystals which head for the bodies extremities and tear into the synovial sacks in the joints, causing extreme pain and swelling.

Long term effects are Kidney failure or Kidney stones, Heart failure and debilitating maiming of the joints of the body.

This is one mean painful beast.

I will be adding various bits of Information into this area in the weeks to come.

There are questionnaires within Gout-aware that are quick and can be beneficial for you to fill them in, as it is interesting to see what areas other people suffer their pain in and what medicines they use.

One Questionnaire is in the medicine section the other is a standalone questionnaire.
