When GOUT Attacks: Gout Treatment Video
Gout is extremely common and can deposit in any joint in the body and is very painful, therefore, easily misdiagnosed.
What Causes Gout?
This painful affliction is caused by the build up of uric acid in the blood, which forms when the body breaks down purines. The acid typically dissolves and is eliminated in the urine, but for some it will build up and form tiny crystals that lead to inflammation in the toes, feet and knees.
