According to Ayurveda, Gout is a metabolism disorder and has afflicted mankind perpetually since the dawn of recorded history. The disorder causes inflammation in joints which is due to high level of uric acid in blood. The amount of uric acid is always above the normal level among the patients suffering from the Gout, the normal proportion of the uric acid should not be more than 0.5mg/100 ml.
Gout generally runs in family and in about 50 to 80% of the cases family history is present. Sedentary people are more commonly affected by the disease and it is less common among the active people.
