Gout is one of the forms of arthritis or joint inflammation. Usually one or two joints are affected at a time. Commonly joints of feet and ankles are inflamed in gout. The commonest site is the ball of the big toe .The first attack of gout subsides in a week or so without treatment. There may be a long gap of many months or years between attacks. As time passes the attacks become more frequent and more severe involving many joints. When the frequency of attacks increases progressive joint damage sets in. This is known as chronic gout. This leads to disability and crippling. Gout is very rare in women but usually affects men. In women it is seen after menopause.

    After a painful flair up in my knees several months ago, It was discovered that I have high levels of uric acid. Despite diet changes and a massive increase of daily water ( alkaline) my levels tested high again today.I am interested in a supplement that can aid in the reduction of uric acid in the body. I am not in pain and do not have any painful joints at this time:)

    Thank you!
