Gout is a type of arthritis that causes inflammation, usually in one joint, that begins suddenly. This condition is caused by too much uric acid in the bloodstream and the accumulation of urate crystals in body tissues. Uric acid crystal deposits in the joints cause inflammation of the joints leading to pain, redness, heat, and swelling. Longstanding untreated gout can lead to joint damage and physical deformity.

“Gout doesn’t exactly have the most demeaning history like, say leprosy, but it still carries an unhealthy stigma. The idea is that if you have gout, it was your doing that caused it. If only you changed your diet and lifestyle, you wouldn’t be having that pain in the first place,” Koulouris mentions in the article, "I remember when I first told my friends I was diagnosed with gout, how they chuckled at my expense, and some said their grandfather or grandmother had that," he added.
