Q How can your doctors help me with gout?
Initially, a doctor can help to decrease pain and inflammation of the joint by prescribing an anti-inflammatory. Ordering labs to assess what is causing your gout is important to prevent further attacks. Once the initial painful episode has resolved, follow-up with a primary care doctor is critical to treat the underlying cause and prevent future attacks.
