In brief: Uric acid urate crys
Uric acid levels can lead to urate crystals precipitation in the tissue and joints and can lead to the joint attacks of gout.
The urate crystals accumulate in the joint, the body sends in inflammatory cells to remove the urate crystals and this leads to the gout attacks. Treating gout includes stopping this inflammation and lowering the level of uric acid in blood which lead to urate crystals.
