Gout or Gouty Arthritis, as it is
sometimes called, is a very painful affliction caused by
an excess of uric acid in the blood stream that
precipitates in the form of crystals in the joints,
usually the joints of the big toe of the foot, but also
in other areas as well. These crystals cause extreme
pain each time we move, like sharp, small needles inside
of our joints.
The uric acid crystals are very
difficult to dissolve and the pain will continue until
they are dissolved and re-absorbed.
We have two medicines to get you over
your pain and dissolve the uric acid. The first
medicine works to eliminate the crystals. The
second medicine works to prevent the formation of the
excess uric acid in the blood stream. Both are
very effective in what they do and when taken together
they knock out your gout. But it can come back unless you knock it out for good.
The real question is why are you
producing more uric acid than you can eliminate before
it precipitates in your joints? To get this answer
requires a visit to our clinic where we can do the
necessary lab work to advise you specifically what can
be done so that you will never see another bout with
Meanwhile, our physicians can
prescribe and send the medicines to you via the mail or
Federal Express. It usually takes 3-4 days to see
improvement after you begin taking the medicines.
