Gout - the myth and the facts

Gout - the myth and the facts


Dr Navid Adib is a Queensland-based pediatric rheumatologist who answers some common questions about Juvenile Idiopathic Arthritis (JIA), in a way that is easy to understand.  Zoe’s Angels raises awareness and funds for children with JIA, in partnership with Arthritis Queensland. Because of Zoe’s Angels, many Queensland children with arthritis have been able to attend Camp Footloose, where they have learnt ways to cope with their arthritis, whilst having fun and meeting other kids with the condition.


When Kristy Woods was diagnosed with Rheumatoid Arthritis (RA) she was young, fit, and newly married. She speaks about the frustration and anger she felt when diagnosed and trying different medications, and the importance of support groups, exercise, and having a good rheumatologist. Kristy’s rheumatologist, Dr Claire Barrett, is also featured in the video.


Neville Wright woke up one morning in terrible pain, and suffered for some time before he sought help. He has since been diagnosed with two forms of arthritis. He talks about the ups and downs of managing pain, finding a balance between activity and rest, and the importance of keeping in touch with his GP. Dr Paul Kubler, Director of Rheumatology, also speaks about the importance of getting help early and having a good support team.
