Overview


Gout is now the most treatable and preventable type of arthritis, yet one percent of the population still suffer from repeated attacks and the condition remains surrounded by myths and incomprehension. Bryan Emmerson, a leading world authority on nephrology specialising in gout, provides a complete background to an understanding of gout - an understanding that he argues is central to its prevention and treatment. Writing in lucid, accessible prose, he traces the condition from Hippocrates to the late twentieth century, covering every aspect of gout likely to concern its victims, from biology to management and prevention.

All the popular fallacies about the nature and causes of gout are discussed and subjected to scientific examination, yet in a way that is fully comprehensible to non-scientists. Is gout really a male-only problem? Does it only afflict the over-weight and middle-aged with extravagant tastes in food and drink? Should one never drink again once one has had gout? What effect does it have on life expectancy? How important is diet? The book ends with a chapter covering these issues and more, and offering practical, sympathetic advice.

For those with a disease that can cause life-long suffering, So You've Got Gout! presents a path to better health and to the complete prevention of gout and its complication. Bryan Emmerson, a world authority on nephrology specialising in gout, has written the first book on gout for a lay readership. Using non-specialist, accessible language, Emmerson covers every aspect of the condition from its biology and variations to ways of managing and preventing gout. Along the way, he explodes many fallacies surrounding the causes of gout.

The book contains black-and-white illustrations.
