This report provides the current prevalence of Gout in 15 major markets.


Gout is caused by the build up of uric acid in the joints due to the body producing too much or excreting too little in the urine, and develops into sodium urate crystals. The formation of these crystals causes pain and inflammation around bone joints. The majority of Gout attacks involve the first metatarsophalangeal joint (FMJ) which is the “big toe” (also known as podagra). It can also occur in other joints of the body such as the spine, other parts of the foot, hips or shoulders and hands.
