Gout arthritis is caused by a buildup of uric acid in the body. This build up can be caused by a variety of factors, including excessive consumption of alcohol and purine-rich foods, obesity, high blood pressure, kidney disease, certain medications, and even genetics. Uric acid is naturally produced in the body and removed through the kidneys. When too much uric acid builds up in the body, it causes crystals to form around the joints causing inflammation and pain.
Gout infusion therapy typically takes one to two hours and is designed to reduce inflammation and pain as quickly and effectively as possible. Patients can expect to feel comfortable during the infusion, as our team will tailor each treatment plan to ensure the patient's comfort. After the infusion, patients may experience relief from their gout symptoms for several weeks or months depending on their individual case.
