The Gout & Uric Acid Education Society is committed to raising public awareness about gout – the most common form of inflammatory arthritis. We provide health care professionals, like you, with resources to share with patients, along with updated medical literature and guidelines.
Today, more than 8.3 million Americans are suffering from gout – a number that has increased sevenfold over the past five decades – but only 10 percent are getting needed, ongoing treatment. Additionally,
more than one in three people with gout have not had their uric acid levels checked within the past five years. Few are also aware of the link between gout and risk factors, including family history, obesity, cardiovascular disease and kidney disease.
Encourage your patients "Go for Six" with gout by providing educational resources to your patients, and by sharing the medical professional information with your colleagues.
