• Gout is a serious problem occurs when the human body has a high amount of uric acid in the body.

• I have one relative facing the gout issues. The pain attacks suddenly, if it isn't treated it might cause problems in the future.

• It should be treated by avoiding mainly seafood, meat ..other foods containing uric acid.

• For immediate relief, it should be treated with ice water.

If gout is left untreated, it may lead to severe conditions like:

Kidney stones - crystals may collect in the urinary tract of the people with gout causing kidney stones.

Advanced gout - untreated gout may cause deposits of urate crystals to form under the skin and develops in several areas like fingers, hands, feet and elbow.

Recurrent gout - If untreated gout can cause corrosion and destruction of joints.
