Understanding Gout : Causes, Symptoms, and Management Strategies

Gout is a form of inflammatory arthritis caused by the accumulation of uric acid crystals in the joints. Uric acid is a byproduct of the breakdown of purines, which are found in certain foods and naturally occur in the body. When there is an excess of uric acid, it can form crystals in the joints, leading to inflammation and intense pain.
