Gout typically affects the small and medium joints of the extremities, and is a form of arthritis. An acute attack of gout can be extremely painful, with redness and swelling of the joint and affected extremity. Typically gout is a disease that affects men more than women. Heredity can be a primary factor in developing gout, however patients with impaired kidney function or patients on blood pressure medication can also have a contributing factor in developing gout.
