Gout is a chronic, inflammatory form of arthritis, which affects the joints causing painful swelling. Gout attacks occur due to a buildup of uric acid, also known as urate. The amount of uric acid in the body is usually controlled by the kidneys, which is passed from the body through urine and stool. However, in some people the regulation of these wastes is disturbed and too little uric acid is eliminated. This causes uric acid to build up resulting in the formation of small crystals of sodium urate in the spaces in and around the joints. Over time, the concentration of these crystals can irritate the joints and surrounding areas, causing joint pain.

This disease is particularly common in men or in the elderly, with the first attacks appearing in middle age. However, symptoms of gout can also develop in women and young people. Certain healthy lifestyle factors can increase the risk of getting gout such as being overweight, high blood pressure, diabetes, a diet high in purines, or excessive consumption of alcohol or sugary drinks.

In the treatment of gout, your doctor may suggest changes in your lifestyle. This can involve losing weight if you are overweight, adopting a healthy diet, reducing your alcohol intake, removing sugary drinks from your diet and making sure you are drinking sufficient amounts. of water throughout the day (diuretic diet).

When an episode of inflammatory arthritis occurs, you should rest the limb affected by rheumatism, keep it lifted as much as possible, and apply ice packs to relieve the swelling. If gout is left untreated, it can in some cases lead to complications and permanent joint damage, kidney stones, and visible lumps under the skin known as tophi. Non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) may also be prescribed to reduce the symptoms of gout during an attack.

This type of treatment is used to treat active symptoms but also to prevent a seizure. If you are having a gout attack or think you are developing gout symptoms for the first time, we advise you to see your doctor.

Colchicine is extracted from the crocus plant. By preventing excessive amounts of white blood cells from getting to affected joints, it works by reducing the painful swelling associated with gout. Too many white blood cells cause lactic acid and other inflammatory enzymes to form in the joint area. By preventing them from reaching their destination, colchicine defuses the swelling and soothes the pain experienced.
