    This is Gout
    tell me about the pressure range which can precipitate gout

    In his toe one can find podgra[in metatarsophalangeal joint]

    alcohol [or large meals can precipitate acute gout] Lactate produced by alchohol competes with urate for its excretion

    NSAIDS/steroids, colchicine can be given in acute state
