Abstract

Effective patient education and explanation is time well spent in the overall management plan for gout. Patients need to appreciate the long term nature of how their gout has occurred and the time it will take to restore their uric acid balance. Following some simple rules when prescribing hypouricaernic drugs, such as allopurinol, will avoid problems and improve patient compliance. Practice points for managing patients with gout are listed in the box on page 63.
