What is Gout?
Gout is the most prevalent form of inflammatory arthritis and afflicts 8 million Americans. Unfortunately, gout is associated with several chronic diseases and impaired quality of life. Elevation of serum uric acid (UA) levels, hyperuricemia, is an essential prerequisite for the development of gout. As blood uric acid levels rise and the physiological saturation threshold for uric acid is exceeded in body fluids, the formation and deposition of uric acid crystals occurs in and around joints.These crystals then trigger an immune response and inflammation.
