Abstract

Gout arthritis is a progressive disease due to the deposition of monosodium urate crystals in joints, kidneys, and other connective tissues due to chronic hyperuricemia. This disease needs to be managed comprehensively so that patients must know about their disease and have awareness and can make lifestyle modifications so that treatment goals can be achieved, prevent complications that may occur, and improve the patient's quality of life. This can be realized with family medicine-based management. The aim of this study is to identify internal, external risk factors and clinical problems found in patients, apply a holistic and comprehensive family doctor approach according to the problems found in patients, and carry out evidence-based medicine management that is family-approach, patient-centered and community oriented.
