New gout guidelines and 'treat to target'

ACP Internist—April 11, 2017

ACP Internist featured HSS rheumatologist Theodore R. Fields, MD, FACP and his opinion on the new ACP guidelines for diagnosing gout.

Dr. Fields disagreed with the ACP recommendation, noting that while joint fluid analysis is the gold standard for gout, it may not always be a practical test for internists to perform.

He said internists "need whatever help they can be given on ways to diagnose gout without crystal analysis." He added that it "seems to imply that we have nothing except crystal identification to guide internists in gout diagnosis."
