Do you have Gout and Heart disease?

Gout is a serious health condition associated with high levels of uric acid or urate.  When the urate level is high, crystals can form in the joints or other parts of the body. The body’s white blood cells try to get rid of the urate crystals and this process can cause attacks of joint inflammation (swelling or irritation). This is called an acute gout flare and is typically very painful. Individuals with gout may also be at an increased risk of developing medical problems that affect the heart, blood vessels, kidney’s and metabolism.


Study detail and compensation:

This study is designed to enroll men at least 50, and post-menopausal women at least 55, who suffer chronic gout and have experienced a heart attack, hospitalized unstable angina, stroke or complications due to diabetes.
