SHL + CARE Present: Gout in the Asian Population
Gout affects 8.3 million Americans, roughly 3.9% of the U.S population. Gout has significant impact on physical function, productivity, health-related quality of life and health care costs. Uncontrolled gout is also associated with significant utilization of emergent care services. Asian patients are 2.7 times more likely to suffer from gout than Caucasian patients. Dr. Jison Hong will discuss how to recognize gout, epidemiology of gout, risk factors of gout, pathophysiology, clinical manifestations, diagnosis, treatment and role of diet and weight loss.
