What Are My Odds Of Getting Gout?

A gout is a form of arthritis caused by the buildup of uric acid crystals in the joints, leading to inflammation, swelling, and intense pain.

Treatment involves managing acute flares with pain relievers and anti-inflammatories, preventing future attacks with lifestyle changes and medications to lower uric acid levels.
