Uric Acid in the Joints
Soluble uric acid can be measured in your blood supply. However, the uric acid that has crystallized and is now residing in connective tissue cannot be measured with a blood analysis. These crystals are always there, in a solid form, "melting" when the levels in the blood will allow, and adding to the build up when levels in the blood become too high for the blood to carry. These deposits are what migrate into the joint causing the acute gout attack. When the tissue is full, any food indulgences and lifestyle choices that cause you to produce more uric acid than the blood can hold, will allow for deposits that crystallize between the bone joints. This can make you falsely blame one food for triggering your attack when in all actuality it simply "tipped the already full cup over."

Uric Acid crystals can take years to accumulate
Uric Acid crystals can cause severe damage to the joints
Uric Acid crystals can build slowly in several joints
Excess build up can cause tophi deposits and lead to severe deformity
