Did You Know That Gout is a Form of Arthritis? Neither Did Most Americans Surveyed

More than 70% of Americans recently surveyed didn’t know that gout is a form of arthritis. The Gout & Uric Acid Education Society announced these results in a press release on the “Third Annual Gout Awareness Day” (May 22).

The survey of more than 2,000 people revealed an extreme lack of public awareness of gout, a painful and potentially debilitating form of arthritis affecting 3 to 5 million Americans. Gout is the most common form of inflammatory arthritis among adults.
