In brief: See details

It can start at almost any age but is more likely to occur as one ages.
In the younger age group, gout is often more likely to present with kidney stones than with arthritis.

In brief: Gouty attack

Gout usually starts in men over 30, later in life for women.
That being said, there is a type of gout that can be brought on by various medications or medical problems, so this type can begin at a younger age. This secondary type of gout can occur as young as 20. The good news is that gout is easily diagnosed and usually well controlled by medication and diet.
