What is

Acute Gout

Gout is a kind of arthritis; it refers to inflammation that’s the result of high levels of uric acid in the blood. The excess acid and its salts are deposited in the blood and joints, leading to the formation of crystals in the joints. These crystals can cause sharp and sudden joint pain, tenderness, and limited joint range of motion.

If you suspect you have acute gout, schedule a consultation with our healthcare professionals.
