Abstract:
Background: The likelihood of an individual developing gout increases with higher serum urate concentration. The severity and duration of hyperuricemia are closely related with the complexities of gout.
Aim: To evaluate the effectiveness of individualized homoeopathic treatment in gout patients.
Objective: The objective of this study is to compare the variation in serum uric acid levels and Gout assessment (GAQ 2.0) scores of gout patients obtained before and after the individualized homoeopathic treatment.
Methods: This was a retrospective observational study guided through the clinical case records of 30 gout patients included with their laboratory reports of serum uric acid levels and GAQ 2.0 scores throughout the treatment from White Memorial Homoeopathic Medical College and Hospital.
Results: Mean reduction for serum uric acid (4.57) and GAQ 2.0 score for each set of questions (177.83, 68.3, 68.6, 310, 199) were considerable when compared with the values of the before treatment of gout. Males (73%) were commonly affected when compared with females (27%). The common age group affected was between 28 and 49 years. And the most frequently prescribed medicine was colchicum autumnale (N=7).
Conclusion: This study reveals the positive impact on individualized homoeopathic treatment for gout patients after evaluating the significant variation in serum uric acid levels and GAQ 2.0 scores.
