Gout has its ill effects on the kidney.
Kidney has to work excessively beyond its capacity to handle the uric acid like in the blood.
This is an early sign of kidney damage their in the kidney is starting to lose its proteins.
If it is not taken seriously in this stage then there may be extensive kidney damage in the future.
ACE inhibitors may help.
