Oh My Gout! is a non-profit health communications campaign born from the collective want to bring to light the frequently misconceived and underestimated disease of gout.
As a group of communication undergraduates from Wee Kim Wee School of who've heard many peers speak of their parents, relatives or grandparents suffering from the disease gout, we believe it is important to raise awareness of this frequently underestimated condition.
With the increase in the standards of living globally, and the transition towards richer diets and more sedentary lifestyles, the onset of gout is growing and hence it is critical to know what kinds of diseases we are susceptible to but not familiar with.
Many of these sufferers are reluctant to seek professional medical treatment, but we're here to tell you why you should seek professional medical treatment immediately when you identify symptoms of gout.
