Arthroblog No 4 - Gout


From the Latin, gutta, gout describes the tears of noxious fluid slowly dripping onto the affected joint, commonly the big toe. Hippocrates told us that women do not "take the gout" until after the menopause, and that eunuchs “do not take the gout” at all. An attack of gout can be bad news if not treated quickly, but if chronic gout is left untreated things can get quite ugly, with irreparable joint damage, kidney stones and even kidney failure. The good news is that there is effective treatment for this form of arthritis.
