 Gout is a type of arthritis with incidence in male is more than female (10:1). It is caused by high level of uric acid in blood. Uric acid is the end product of protein/ purines metabolism.

Blood uric acid levels are increased if kidneys cannot handle excess uric acid load or if it is not able to remove it efficiently.
If levels of uric acid are high for prolonged periods, needle-like crystals are formed in body tissues resulting in swollen, painful joints.
