Gout

How to test for and treat it

Gout is a kind of arthritis which can suddenly cause bad pain in your joints, and up to 2 out of every 100 people will get it. 

Fortunately, gout is very manageable when it’s diagnosed and treated effectively. You can order a test kit or gout treatment online through Superdrug Online Doctor by filling in a short medical questionnaire.
