What is Gout?

Gout (also known as Gouty Arthritis) is a form of arthritis which often occurs in the big toe, ankle, elbow and knee joints. Gout is caused by abnormally elevated levels of uric acid in the blood. Normally our body can get rid of uric acid when we urinate. However, when there’s a high level of uric acid, our body cannot eliminate it quickly enough. High uric acid can lead to the formation of urate crystals mostly around the kidneys and joints. Our white blood cells get in defense mode and attack these crystals causing inflammation and intense pain.

Symptoms of Gout

A gout attack can be characterised as a sudden and severe pain, swelling, redness and tenderness in joints. Gout often occurs suddenly, over a couple of hours or overnight. Gout symptoms can be:

  • Severe pain in one joint or more joints - the attacks are common to the joint at the base of the big toe, however, gout can affect any joint.
  • Swelling at the joint
  • Redness or inflammation
