Dear Jeff,

From my book, The Owner's Manual for the Human Body :

Gout
Gout is a form of arthritis, caused by a buildup of uric acid in the bloodstream. Uric acid is a waste product produced during the breakdown of foods containing purine. Normally, uric acid is eliminated quickly through two channels : 1/3 passes through the intestines where it is deactivated by bacteria living there; 2/3 is excreted in the urine. Either too much uric acid is being produced or the body is unable to excrete normal amounts. The result is an accumulation in the bloodstream. The excess acid combines with salt and forms crystals which are then deposited in the joints, the kidneys or the ear cartilage. These sodium urate crystals can erode and destroy any joint, causing inflammation, swelling and pain. Crystals in the kidneys join together and form kidney stones. Crystals in the ear form painful, draining nodules called tophi. Gout can also express as carpal tunnel syndrome and trigger finger. Gout sufferers also experience a higher frequency of diabetes and atherosclerosis. Conventional medicines, especially diuretics, usually make the problem worse.
