Hi, guys. My friend has been diagnosed with gout. I know that this is the accumulation of the uric acid crystals in the joints. These crystals are also called tophi. I was wondering if someone could tell me something more about these gout tophi. How do you get rid of them?

Hi, there. I have heard about gout. This disease indeed causes a lot of pain. You can get rid of the gout tophi if you take your medications regularly. One of those meds is allopurinol. It inhibits the enzyme called xanthine oxidase. In that way, the synthesis of uric acid is decreased. I am not sure if you can get rid of already synthetised tophi. Your friend should consult his doctor about this. Good luck!
