More people are being diagnosed with gout, a type of arthritis. And researcher are blaming obesity.
Gout is a condition that causes microscopic crystals to accumulate in joints. These crystals cause a dramatic inflammation that creates pain and swelling. People who experience a gout flare often describe these episodes as some of the most severe pain they have ever experienced.
Recent data shows the number of people with gout is increasing, and obesity is likely to blame. Gout crystals are formed as a byproduct of the breakdown of certain types of foods. These same foods are often associated with poor diets that lead to obesity.
