Getting Gout Under Control
series: Healthy Body Healthy Mind
air date: 10/15/13 8:30 AM
Gout once thought to be a disease of Kings and Aristocracy is now considered one of the most common inflammatory conditions. It can also be excruciatingly painful. According to the National Institutes of Health, gout is a kind of arthritis that occurs when uric acid builds up in blood and causes joint inflammation. Often gout can be triggered by certain foods, lifestyle choices and other modifiable risk factors. In this program, we will raise awareness of the causes and symptoms of gout as well as the most effective treatments. We will stress the need for communication between patient and physician. We will hear directly from patients about how the treatments are working for them... and hear from physicians about the importance of sticking with those treatments long term.
