How does the uric acid get into the joints?

Uric acid to joints. Uric acid crystals can build up in the joints due to too much uric acid in the blood. Uric acid crystals trigger a immune-mediated inflammatory reaction, causing pain, swelling and redness of the joints, which is experienced as a gout attack. High levels of uric acid may be due to hereditary reasons for uric acid overproduction, underexcretion, diet and medications.
