Gout is a condition affecting mostly men over the age of 30, and woman after menopause. A type of arthritis, gout occurs when small crystals form around and within joints. This leads to sever pain and swelling lasting anywhere from three to 10 days.
Symptoms of gout include swelling and severe pain in joints, a feeling of ‘hot tenderness’ when touching the affected joint, and skin going red and shiny over the joint. When a person’s body doesn’t filter out enough uric acid, crystallization occurs at certain joints – where inflammation takes place from time to time.
We increase our chances of gout when drinking too much alcohol, eating foods (like red meat and offal) that build up uric acid in the body, having high blood pressure or diabetes, or having close relatives with gout.
