Be cautious when treating gout in patients with renal impairment
- 25 Downloads
Gout and renal impairment are frequent comorbidities, with both conditions strongly associated with hyperuricaemia. The management of gout involves treating and preventing gout flares, and reducing serum urate levels to eliminate the urate crystal deposits in the joints. Although the overall treatment of gout is very similar in patients with or without renal impairment, special precautions must be taken to avoid adverse effects related to renal impairment.
