Gout

Gout patients at Ogden Clinic are experiencing a complex form of arthritis. Excessive uric acid in the blood causes gout, which can develop when people eat too many foods rich in uric acid or produce too much on their own. Uric acid forms into hard crystals in the joints (most commonly in the big toe.) Gout sufferers at Ogden Clinic often say they experience inflammation along with lingering feelings of discomfort.

Ogden Clinic podiatrists can test for gout and determine its severity. Fortunately, there are several simple options for gout treatment, based on your Ogden podiatrist’s recommendations. Changes in diet, along with gout medication or local injections may be necessary for a full recovery.
