Managing Your Gout

Effectively managing gout isn't just a matter of taking pain medicine during a gout attack. You should also talk with your healthcare professional about positive lifestyle changes, like good nutrition, exercise, and weight loss, which may make a difference in your gout and your overall health. In addition, your healthcare professional may consider including medicines to help address the high uric acid that is causing your gout.

By knowing how to reduce your pain during flares and ways to keep your uric acid at a lower, healthy level, you can help manage your gout more effectively, both short- and long-term.
