Abstract:
Gout is characterized by an inflammatory response that is initiated by the precipitation of monosodium urate within and surrounding the joints as well as the soft tissue. This is the most common form of inflammatory arthritis and has been showing increasing incidence over recent years in association with increased incidence of the metabolic syndrome 1 . Arthritis Ireland believe the same increase is taking place in Ireland with up to 5% of the Irish population suffering from gout. Many associate alcohol consumption with gout but fructose in non alcoholic soft drinks and beers may also have a contributory role. Male patients who consume over 2 soft drinks daily are thought to have a 1.85 relative risk for developing gout.
