A few words about the gout
Gout is, actually, the chronic condition which is of the metabolic origin, that is, it happens due to the inflammatory process on the joints and of the deposits of the urates around them. The underlying cause of this health problem is the abnormally increased level of the uric acid in the blood. This condition usually occurs as the logical consequence of the inability of the kidneys to expel enough of these acids through the urination. That acid tends to form specific crystals which are the direct trigger of the inflammation, and, consequently the pain and the swelling of the joints, as the most prominent symptoms. Additionally, the pain comes in the specific attacks of the inflammation, which happen from time to time.
This condition is commonly known as the most frequent form of the inflammatory arthritis in elderly men. Additionally, the gout can be found most frequently on the big toes, and in that case, the ache, discomfort and the pain can be described as ardent.
