Gout is an incredibly painful inflammatory arthritis disorder than can be quite debilitating. People who have gout can attest to the intense pain that often comes in the night where even the touch of a sheet is too much to bear. Normally attacking the joint in the big toe and other joints in the foot, a gout attack occurs when too much uric acid builds up. Diet is one of the most important methods for controlling gout attacks and avoiding gout flareups during the holidays requires mindfulness about what you consume.
