Gout (French: goutte) is a type of arthritis, common in men. The majority of gout patients are diagnosed as middle-aged men with a history of the underlying disease and the majority of patients who drink alcohol regularly.

The root cause of gout is genetic problems. So far, scientists have identified five genes associated with gout: HGPRT1, Glc6-phosphate in the liver and three genes PRPPs1, 2,3 in the testes. In gout, inflammation occurs due to small crystals of a substance called uric acid, which is the urate salt crystals. There is a risk of urate salt deposition if the uric acid level is high in the body. However, hyperuricemia and gout syndrome are two distinct issues, even if they are closely related. Uric acid is a waste product formed by the natural destruction of purines in the body (purines present in the body's cells). Eating habits, inappropriate nutrition habits not only increase the purine but also an incomplete source of metabolism creating countless free radicals, wandering around the body and ready to attach to any which genes are at risk of mutation.

Gout is a disorder of purine metabolism, which increases blood uric acid, resulting in the accumulation of urate salt crystals, thus causing arthritis. Typical clinical manifestations are swelling, heat, redness, and intense pain in one or more joints. Most patients who have successfully treated the pain claim to have recovered without knowing that the disease is still progressing inward. If treatment is not continued and thorough, the pain will reappear more and more severe. At a later stage, there may appear tumors, lumps called tophi seeds around the joints, greatly affect the aesthetics, have the risk of deforming joints and can lead to disability.

Men are more likely to get gout than women because the faulty genes are common in men. However, women with strong masculinity also suffer from gout as usual. Other risk factors include obesity, family history, kidney disease, high blood pressure, metabolic syndrome, alcoholism and the use of certain medications (aspirin, diuretics).

Symptoms of gout

The first stage is usually without any symptoms except high blood uric acid levels. The first common symptoms are redness and soreness in the thumb. Usually, the pain comes after a physical impact at the site of the pain, or after a nutrition event (drinking, partying). Pain often occurs in joints including ankles, feet, knees, wrists, elbows and small joints of the hands, sometimes in small joints everywhere in the body. The urate salt crystals cause arthritis, leading to redness, heat, pain, and stiffness. Most patients have recurrent pain attacks within a few years, depending on their condition and lifestyle, usually within 1-3 years. If left untreated, in the later stages, acute joint pain will cause multiple joint damages, joint damage, loss of movement, chronic pain and tophi formation (due to urate crystals deposited in soft tissues).

Gout treatments

Once you have gout, acute gout attacks will occur sooner or later, whether or not you take medication. The goal in treating gout is to help patients relieve the pain of acute gout attacks, extend the distance between gout attacks, prevent other attacks, and avoid the formation of kidney stones and subcutaneous tumors around the gouty joint. Successful treatment can help relieve discomfort caused by gout symptoms as well as reduce long-term damage in gouty joints.
