(This is the first new comprehensive guideline since 1977!!! Yikes!)

These would be studies that you could ask your doctor to look over to see if he or she is in agreement with their (very in-depth) conclusions. Doctors have a million ailments to keep up on, and gout is probably low on the priority list for most of them!


We have developed recommendations for the diagnosis of gout based on both clinical practice and the best available evidence. Ten key recommendations regarding clinical features of gout, biochemical examinations, urate crystals, radiographs, risk factors, and co‐morbidities have been evaluated. A full review of this topic has also prompted 10 key recommendations for the future research agenda. We trust that these recommendations will lift the profile of gout and act as a catalyst for discussion between all health professionals involved in the diagnosis and management of patients with gout."
