Preventing gout thanks to knowledge of your DNA

 Gout is a painful rheumatic inflammation caused by deposits of needle-shaped crystals of uric acid in one or more joints, generally in the hands and feet. Uric acid accumulates in the body as a result of a metabolic disorder. The inflammatory response causes redness, swelling and considerable pain. Men are generally first affected by gout between the ages of 40 and 50, and women after the menopause.

Gout and heredity

The risk of gout is determined to some extent by hereditary factors. To date it has been scientifically proven that a number of genes play a role in this. On the basis of your DNA it is therefore possible to see clearly whether you have an increased or reduced risk of gout.
