Gout is a complex, but relatively common form of arthritis. Notoriously high in red meat and low in vegetables, the traditional western diet can lead to the development of gout. Gout can present itself in episodes of extreme joint pain.
Most often found in the big toe, gout has been called “the disease of kings.” This is due to its association with many European royals throughout history. Often, gout can be an unfortunate cause of chronic pain.
Gout occurs when an excess of uric acid deposits in the joints. Uric acid comes from rich foods, such as red meats and alcohols. When uric acid levels get too high, gout develops leading to frequent pain.
