Common Conditions - Gout

Gout is caused by the deposition of uric acid crystals in certain joints and can cause severe pain, swelling and redness. Joints commonly affected include the big toe, ankle and knee. Diagnosing gout is important as it is associated with high blood pressure, type 2 diabetes and obesity. Various drugs can be used to treat an acute attack and under certain circumstances preventative treatment is recommended.
