Gout is a painful and potentially disabling form of arthritis that has been around since ancient times. Gout can affect anyone, and its risk factors vary. Gout is caused by uric acid crystals forming within or around joints, making them painful, red and swollen, most often in the feet, especially the big toe. 50% of first episodes occur in the big toe, but any joint can be involved. Fortunately, it is possible to treat gout and reduce its very painful attacks by avoiding food and medication triggers and by taking medicines that can help. However, diagnosing gout can be hard, and treatment plans often must be tailored for each person.
Uric acid forms when your body breaks down compounds called purines, which are found naturally in our cells and in some high-protein foods. Your bloodstream takes uric acid to the kidneys and it leaves your body in your urine. However, if your uric acid levels are too high, either because your body isn’t excreting it or you have a condition that causes high levels in your blood, uric acid crystals can form within or around your joints. This causes swelling, inflammation and pain in the joints, as well as in soft tissue like bursa and tendons. The crystals can also build up under your skin and eventually cause hard bumps called tophi.
Gout is directly affected by the levels of uric acid in your blood. Foods rich in purines raise your uric acid levels, because purines break down into uric acid. So, avoiding foods high in purines will reduce your risk of another gout.
