    Hello Daisy,

    Gout is an inflammatory condition that often affects the joints of the big toes even though it can affect other areas. The pain and inflammation of gout is caused by an increase of uric acid.

    Dietary changes to reduce purines and increase vitamin C complex are very important. Unsweetened cherry juice concentrate is quite helpful.

    Please review the information at the following web site for additional suggestions.
