The article of the day reveals causes of gouty arthritis, deposits, iritis, diathesis, iridocyclitis, plain pain and how to relieve it.

Life in New York can become very hectic and very few of us have time for any aches and pains, especially when it affects our ability to walk comfortably and wear great shoes! However, one of the most common diagnosis in New York City and Long Island (particularly for middle aged men) is gout. Gout is a form of arthritis, which can cause very sudden swelling, pain and even stiffness. In many cases, it attacks a specific joint: the great toe. There is usually little to no warning before a gout flare-up, so it’s important to visit your podiatrist and be prepared.


The cause of gout is an excessive amount of uric acid within the blood. In turn, crystal-like deposits form within the joints, causing great pain and discomfort. Many patients even report difficulty walking or completing daily routine activities during these painful times. Others have these flare-ups because of certain medications they may be taking. Studies show that the chances of developing gout and associated foot and toe pain increase if you are above average weight, consume alcoholic beverages or eat meat and fish dishes which are high in purines.


Unfortunately, if gout and it’s symptoms are left untreated, many complications can occur, in turn making the disease worse. It is important to visit a podiatrist immediately (at the first sign of symptoms - foot pain, swelling, redness, bumps / markings) so that they can determine the best treatment plan for you. This will likely be a combination of medication, diet and ice therapy for swelling. Additionally, in many cases, custom shoes can be designed by your podiatrist to alleviate the pain when walking on the affected foot.
