Chronic gout is a serious but treatable disease. KRYSTEXXA works differently than other gout medications you may have tried. KRYSTEXXA helps to reduce the signs and symptoms of chronic gout that hasn’t been controlled with other treatments by reducing uric acid levels and helping remove uric acid crystals from your body. Sign up to meet patients who have been treated with KRYSTEXXA, and learn how KRYSTEXXA may help treat your gout.
