Objective: To determine the frequency and assess the risk of cardiovascular disease in patients suffering from gout.

Background: Gout is a sign of disturbed metabolism, which is associated with cardiovascular diseases (CVD). Soaring mortality is associated with a lot of risk factors and comorbid conditions, which have to be dealt with the help of scientists and practitioners.

Methods: The following retrospective study included 218 patients suffering from gout according to the criteria of S.L. Wallace. The risk of major coronary events was calculated via the SCORE scale.

Results: Arterial hypertension and BMI > 25 kg / m2 (90.8%) have prevailed among the respondents. Increased level of total cholesterol (TC) was detected in 63.8% cases, decreased level of highdensity lipoproteins - in 71.6%, and hypertriglyceridemia - in 60.5% relevantly. 175 patients (80.3%) had high cardiovascular risk (estimated more than 5%). 43 (19.7%) of them had a low and medium risk of developing fatal CVD (1-4%). The high share of patients suffering from gout was endangered with cardiovascular pathology.

Conclusion: The most frequently matched risk factors among patients suffering from gout are an increase in BMI> 25 kg/m2 (90.8%) and dyslipidemia.

Keywords: Gout risk factors, cardiovascular pathology, cardiovascular risk, rheumatology, hyperuricemia, cardiovascular diseases (CVD).
