Get the Best Podiatric Care
Do you have pain in your joint? Has your skin taken on a glossy hue and looks shiny? As a common form of inflammation of the joint, gout affects more men than women and is evident in the first metatarsophalangeal joint or the big toe. Gout when untreated normally subsides in a week but is followed by months and years of painful attacks. Deploying the essence of care and detailed treatment, the podiatrists at Cupertino Podiatry near San Jose, California are experts in the field of foot problems and offer professional advice with follow up care. Gout as a severe problem can affect any joint and even at the onset is very painful. Affecting the ankles and the feet, gout when not treated on time turns in to a chronic condition.

Displaying a swollen hot and inflamed joint, gout is due to high levels of uric acid that crystallizes and is found in deposits in the surrounding areas of the joints. Known as the 'rich man's disease' and 'the disease of kings', gout is normally treated with NSAIDs or non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs that are prescribed by the experienced doctors at the Cupertino clinic. Gout is characterized by a reddish discoloration, warmth, pain in the joint, fever and swelling with tenderness and commonly affects the joint at the base of the big toe. With many causes attributed to gout, some of them may be obesity, a congenital problem, high levels of purines in food, high intake of alcohol and may also be found in people with a kidney disease or due to the drugs taken by blood pressure patients.
