Gout: A Treatment Overview


Rheumatologist-created video reviews the two key aspects of gout treatment: therapy for flares and prevention.

Fortunately, there are a number of treatment options available to treat gout flares, including colchicine, anti-inflammatories, and cortisone injections. For those with more frequent flares, there are preventative medications such as allopurinol available too

The video “provides a brief review of the two guiding principles in the treatment of gout: therapy for flares and prevention.”
