Gout is a health problem that can happen if you have high levels of something called ‘uric acid’ in your blood. This acid can cause you to get little crystals turning up in your joints which can cause symptoms like really bad pain, swelling, and redness. The most common joint to get gout in is your big toe.

If you think you’re at risk of getting gout, or if you want to check your levels of uric acid, you can buy one of our home blood test kits for gout, online.

Using a home test works in the following steps:

  • Place an order and get your kit delivered to your door, or collect from a local post office (delivery is free)
  • Collect your sample by following the instructions in the test kit
  • Send your samples to our UK-based, accredited partner laboratory (postage is free) 
  • Once your results are available (in 2 to 3 days), our doctors will review your results  
  • One of our doctors will contact you, via a secure and confidential message in your patient account, to let you know your results and give you advice and support on what to do next
Due to a national increase in coronavirus testing, our test lab partners are experiencing delays of up to 3-4 days when delivering results from other test kits. We ask for your patience and compassion during these unprecedented times, and we're deeply grateful for your continued understanding.
