People with gout have been caricatured and laughed at throughout the centuries – but for people living with the condition, it is anything but funny.


Gout is in fact one of the most common forms of arthritis. If you have ever had a gout attack, you may never have experienced pain quite like it.


You are not alone, gout currently affects approximately 1 in 40 people in the UK.


If you think you have gout, it is important you seek help from a medical professional as soon as possible – not only to get the right treatment but also to rule out links with any other possible health conditions.


This website aims to dispel some of the myths surrounding gout and provide you with basic support and information, as well as links to other useful resources.
