  1. Prevents painful gout symptoms 
  2. Branded treatment
  3. Common arthritic condition

Gout is a common arthritic condition that tends to affect men more often than women. That being said gout symptoms can develop in both sexes at any stage in life. Gout occurs when the body fails to excrete enough of the waste product known as uric acid or urate. This buildup can cause microscopic crystals of sodium urate to form and cluster in and around the spaces in between joints. Over a number of years the accumulation of crystals can eventually start to cause problems. Pain is caused by inflammation of the soft lining of the joint known as the synovium and the formation of tophi, a group of crystals which form an expanding lump which can impede on cartilage and bone sometimes leading to irreversible joint damage.

There are certain lifestyle and health factors that may leave you more at risk of gout. For example your chances of developing symptoms will increase as you get older; with men more likely to experience symptoms after the age of 30 and women after the age of 60. If you are overweight, have high blood pressure, high cholesterol or diabetes or have a close family member with gout you are more likely to be diagnosed. People who drink too much beer or spirits or eat a diet high in purines found in red meat, seafood and offal.

The joints which are most commonly affected are the feet, knees, hands and elbows. If you do not seek treatment for gout then you may go on to experience more frequent and more severe episodes. Also, as mentioned earlier, a small amount of gout cases can lead to permanent joint damage so it is important to get treated as soon as possible. Your doctor may also advise you to make some lifestyle changes such as losing weight if you are overweight or altering your diet if you are eating and drinking too much of the potential triggers.

Zyloric is from the group of medicines known as xanthine-oxidase inhibitors. It works to reduce the number of urates in your blood and therefore reduce the likelihood of sodium urate crystals forming. It is used as a preventative measure for those at risk of a gout flare up.
