This is a population overview of the respondents to my symptoms of gout survey.
Between 2007 and 2012, 4340 people responded to a two-part online survey about gout symptoms.
The first part covered types of symptoms, and the second part covered joints affected. Clearly, gout is a global problem.
Facilities for controlling gout vary between countries, but there is one constant source of help you can get anywhere in the world. If you need personal help with your gout, simply ask in the gout forum, or join me in the gout discussions on Google.
You can read more about gout symptoms and diagnosis in the Gout Symptoms guidelines.
