Episode 457: Who let the Gout Out? Targeting Uric Acid Levels in Treating Gout

In episode 457, James and Mike yet again invite Joey Ton to go through the evidence around reaching a target serum urate level in patients with gout. As with many arbitrary thresholds determined from observational studies (sometimes), or just made up, when you properly study if there is a benefit to achieving these levels the theory really crumbles under the weight of the evidence. We also briefly talk about the febuxostat vs allopurinol data and the outcomes that matter.
