Managing Gout - 2012 ACR Guidelines

By October 28, 2012

Follow me on:

Approximately 8.3 million adults in the U.S. have gout. Over the past few decades, the prevalence of gout has increased. The increased prevalence of gout has been linked to comorbidities associated with hyperuricemia.

Gout is very painful. It's important to get the condition under control. Researchers have developed a two-part set of guidelines which educate patients about preventing gout attacks. The American College of Rheumatology guidelines also provide information about long-term gout management. Learn more in Gout Management - 2012 ACR Guidelines.
