Gout was once called "the rich man's disease" because it was believed to be caused by an excess of food and drink. Today, however, much more is known about gout, including the fact that we all are susceptible to this painful condition.Gout is a form of arthritis that causes swollen, red, hot and stiff joints. It is triggered by excessive levels of uric acid in the blood that form urate crystals around joints and cause inflammation.
