Gout is a metabolic disorder characterized by hyperuricemia and abnormal depositions of urate around tissues and in and around joints, that is, tophi. Gout is a progressive disease, which, if not treated effectively, can make a person disable. The aim of this study was to systematically review the literature on impact of gouty arthritis on physical activity. We performed a systematic review for impact of gouty arthritis on physical activity. An inclusion criterion of the review was the physical activity for gouty arthritis. Comorbidities were associated with gouty arthritis and long-term manifestations. Physically active patients have shown significantly low uric acid levels and also have fewer gout flares as compared to physically inactive patients.
