If you think you have gout, you’re not alone—joint pain is common and the prevalence of gout has increased over the past 30 years. Gout typically shows up as painful, red, hot, and swollen joint, usually in the lower extremities. 80% of gout involves a single joint (most often the big toe or knee), and attacks often occur at night or early in the morning.
Why is gout more common now? There are three reasons this is true: we are living longer, we have higher rates of obesity and other chronic diseases like diabetes, and we have higher rates of uncontrolled high blood pressure. See More

Brand-only drugs like Restasis, Eliquis and Lyrica can cost well over $500 for a month’s supply, and without cheaper generic alternatives, patients are often forced to either shell out their life savings or give up essential medications. FDA initiatives to expedite the drug review process and prohibit manufacturers from holding market exclusivity for too long will hopefully bring many generics to the market soon. See More

Not all big toe pain is gout—but you may have been hearing more about it recently. The prevalence of gout has increased greatly over the past 30 years.
So what is gout, why do we get it, and how can you get rid of it?
Why more gout? There is more gout for three main reasons: we live longer, more people have high blood pressure and diabetes, and common medications like aspirin and diuretics increase the risk of gout. See More

You aren’t alone. The reason we hear so much about gout is that the prevalence of gout has increased greatly over the past 30 years. It’s more common in men than women but women start to catch up after menopause.
Why is there more gout? There are 3 reasons: we live longer, there is more high blood pressure, and common medications like aspirin and diuretics increase risk of gout.
What are we doing wrong? Increased consumption of carbs, proteins, and drinks containing fructose contribute to gout. See More
