What is gout?

Gout is a painful arthritic condition that results from uric acid crystals buildup, causing sudden and severe joint pain. It can be triggered by various factors such as diet and genetics, but effective management is within reach.

Lifestyle changes, dietary adjustments, and medications play key roles in alleviating and preventing gout. At HelloGP, our Australian-registered telehealth doctors provide expert guidance through virtual consultations, offering personalised strategies for symptom relief and long-term management.
