Gout is the build up of uric acid in your joints. People with kidney disease are susceptible because our kidneys can't flush out the uric acid. It's a type of arthritis that can be treated by anti-inflammatory drugs.

I might have gout. We aren't sure yet. The doctor took some blood to check my uric acid level. He gave me a prescription to get an x-ray and has me on a steroid. I'm getting the x-ray after treatment today. I hope the steroid makes me hungry! I'd love to gain some weight.
