3 What is gout? Gout is an illness that you would not like to have. My definition of gout is like having a bunch of needles between your joints with a strong gust of wind just blowing every which way a wind could flow at the joint that them needle’s are in. With just what little of comprehensive word to use when in agony, I suggest that you educate yourself when you have a gout attack. If possible that you have been diagnose with gout that you immediately find the proper management for this illness. This presentation is just a directory for gout and is written by Pita Lualemaga at California State University of Fresno. The presentation is to get a understanding what and how you should Manage Gout. What is gout? Gout is an illness that you would not like to have.

7 In most cases, gout is associated with a condition known as hyperuricemia. Hyperuricemia occurs when the blood contains raised levels of uric acid sustained over long periods. The kidneys process uric acid and excrete this through urine. When uric acid levels become raised, the kidneys are unable to eliminate uric acid efficiently. In some cases, the cause of gout is not linked to hyperuricemia but to kidney disease. Blood uric acid levels can arise when the kidney is not functioning properly. Whichever cause, the kidneys can become damaged when blood uric acid levels are raised over long periods. The body unable to eliminate uric acid, deposits a hardened crystallised form of uric acid (tophi) usually in the joints and skin. Within the joints, deposits can be made in the joint fluid (synovial fluid) and joint lining (synovial lining).Common areas for these deposits are the ankles, feet and ball of the large toe. Less common areas of uric acid deposits include the ears and eyes. Tophi, areas of hardened uric acid, may also be seen under the skin around the fingers and toes.

After an acute attack, skin overlying the affected joint may peel and shed. If this occurs on a toe joint, the area may be more likely to develop a fungal infection (athlete's foot). Keep the area dry and use an over-the- counter antifungal cream, such as terbinafine or clotrimazole.After an acute attack, skin overlying the affected joint may peel and shed.
