Dr. Goodwin, President of Health Power, leading source of health information for minorities worldwide, interviews Dr. Theodore Fields, a rheumatologist, of the Hospital of Special Surgery in New York City and Medical Advisor of the publication, “Creaky Joints”. Their discussion took place on May 22nd, Gout Awareness Day.
Dr. Fields highlights findings from a survey on gout, including the classical presentation of the red hot toe. Gout results from having too much uric acid in the blood system, which results in joint inflammation. Fortunately, gout is a treatable condition.
