Who is more prone to Gout? Men or Women

Men are more likely to suffer from Gout. Common age of onset is around the 30th to 40th decade of life.
Women are less prone because their hormone Estrogen promotes the urinary excretion of uric acids. That is why very few women experience gout attack before menopause. However, after menopause, levels of estrogen drops posing women to equal risk.
