About Gout:

Gout is a common and painful type of arthritis caused by a build-up of uric acid in your bloodstream. Gout causes swelling, redness, and pain in joints (most commonly toes). Some people are more likely to develop gout due to their genetics but some lifestyle factors such as diet, alcohol consumption, obesity and certain medications and health conditions can increase your risk. There is no cure for gout, but the pain and inflammation from flare-ups can be reduced with anti-inflammatory medication
