TagTophaceous Gout

Tophaceous Gout is a serious stage of gouty arthritis. There is a strong indication that either you have avoided medical attention, or the advice you have received is completely flawed. You must seek rapid, maximum lowering uric acid treatment (within the bounds of safety). This will shrink tophi over several months, but if this is not soon enough, you may need surgery. See the tophaceous gout guidelines for more tophi information.

Medical Disclaimer: The pupose of GoutPal is to provide jargon-free explanations of medical gout-related terms and procedures. Because gout sufferers need to know what questions to ask their doctor. Also, you need to understand what your doctor tells you. So this website explains gout science. But it is definitely NOT a substitute for medical advice.

Information on this website is provided by a fellow gout sufferer (Keith Taylor) with an accountant's precision for accurate data. But no medical qualifications. So you must seek professional medical advice about gout and any other health matters.
