There is no real link to 'Rheumatoid Arthritis causing Gout'
but there is the possibility of having
both Gout and Arthritis at the same time.
Ouch that would be painful but it can happen.
Both can affect the joints, both have extremely
similar symptoms and effects.
Doctors only distinguish this form of Arthritis
using immunological studies such as the Rhematoid
factor, medical history studies, blood tests, etc.
Yet it is significantly rare for both diseases
to co-exist in the same person in fact there is
a negative correlation between the two.
There is a slight potential of Rheumatoid
Arthritis increasing the Serum Uric acid levels and
Monosodium depositis the body which in turn
can cause Gout attacks but this is yet to be completely linked.
There is great difficulty in establishing evidence
due to chronic tophaceous gout virtually mimicing rheumatoid arthritis.
Can Rheumatoid Arthritis cause Gout? NO confirmed evidence...
