Gout is a very common condition in Canadians. Gout is the most common cause of inflammatory arthritis in men over 40 years of age. Gout is a chronic disease that gets worse over time and can cause serious disability. Gout also puts a person at higher risk of heart disease, kidney disease and diabetes. Gout is caused by a waste product called uric acid which is normally removed from the body. In some people, the level of uric acid becomes too high in their body and when it reaches a certain level it starts to form crystals. These crystals can start to deposit into your joints which can cause gout attack with symptoms such as inflammation, pain, swelling and redness in the area. Common triggers that can bring on a gout attack include, dehydration, an injury in the joint, excessive alcohol, eating foods high in purines and rapid weight loss.
