Autumn Years Magazine—June 1, 2017
Autumn Years Magazine featured an article by Theodore R. Fields, MD, FACP, rheumatologist at HSS. The article explained the cause and symptoms of gout, and how to tell if a person is at risk.
"Gout tends to run in families, and many patients have relatives who share the problem," said Dr. Fields.
"When gout patients stick with their medication, follow a healthy diet and control their weight, there is a good chance flare-ups will go away completely over time," he added.
This article was featured in the Summer 2017 print edition.
