Gout is a metabolic disease that causes inflammation when increased blood uric acid in the body is not excreted through the kidneys and is deposited as sharp crystals in the joints. Gout got its name from the fact that even the slightest breeze can cause excruciating pain. If not treated in time, gout nodule, rheumatoid arthritis, etc. can be accompanied.
