What is Gout?

People who have trouble metabolizing purines can lead to having Hyperuricemia or Gout. Purines is a common chemical compound or amino acid found in foods and drinks. These natural chemical compound are metabolized by the body and turned into uric acid. Uric acid is then filtered out of the bloodstream by the kidneys. If excess uric acid builds up in the bloodstream, it can lead to the formation of acid crystals in joints resulting in Gout. Uric cyrstals can collect in the urinary tract causing kidney stones. Gout inflammation can happen in any joint.
