Gout : Answers at Your Fingertips Paperback / softback
Part of the answers at your fingertips series
Gout is an inflammatory arthritic condition, which is becoming increasingly common in both men and women.
Characterised by painful, swollen joints, gout can occur in acute, intermittent attacks or it can develop into a crippling chronic disease.
Attacks are typically brought on by over consumption of purine-rich foods and drinks, such as shellfish and beer, medications for high blood pressure, being overweight, major surgery and other medical conditions such as diabetes. This is an invaluable reference guide answering 217 genuine questions about gout and offering positive, practical advice on dealing with the condition.
It dispels the myth that this is just a problem suffered by the over indulgent and provides the best advice on treatment and alleviating painful symptoms.
