What is Gut?

Gout is a type of joint inflammation that causes joint pain, swelling, and redness. It is known as the Kingdom's disease or rich disease. It occurs as a result of the body's reaction to uric acid, which is more than normal in the body. Most toes are involved in the joint of the thumb.

The most important symptom of gout disease is severe pain and swelling in the joint. Disease is silent when there is no inflammation of the joints. A typical gout patient is one who is overweight and regularly consumes alcohol at the age of 40-50. Acute gout attacks are usually triggered by an infection or trauma. Diuretic drugs can trigger triggers when using low-dose aspirin.
