Dr. Wu explains that, "Gout is a form of arthritis characterized by severe joint inflammation (swelling, warmth, redness and tenderness) of one or more joints that results from the deposition of uric acid crystals in the affected joints."
She also mentions "Gout can occur at any age, but it is more common in individuals over the age of 40.

The estimated prevalence of gout in the U.S. ranges from three to eight million people."
