Gout is a disease, one of the main causes of which is the systemic overeating of game meat, especially the liver, kidneys, thymus glands, and alcohol overdose. Excessive consumption of such products builds up breakdown substances called purines in the blood. Purines are processed into uric acid and should be excreted in the urine.

If we regularly overload our body, part of the uric acid fails to be excreted and accumulates in the form of crystals in the tissues of the joints, soft parts of the ear, big toe, elbow, bones - the so-called gout tophi. The crystals cause an inflammatory reaction - swelling, pain, redness, warmth and impaired joint function.

Urate stones can form in the kidneys, and worst of all, these stones cannot be visualized on X-rays because they are transparent to Ro-rays. Acute renal failure and death can occur from these stones.
