2020 American College of Rheumatology Guideline provides guidance for the management of gout, including indications for and optimal use of urate lowering therapy (ULT), treatment of gout flares, and lifestyle and other medication recommendations.

Fifty-seven population, intervention, comparator, and outcomes questions were developed, followed by a systematic literature review, including network meta-analyses with ratings of the available evidence according to the Grading of Recommendations Assessment, Development and Evaluation (GRADE) methodology, and patient input. A group consensus process was used to compose the final recommendations and grade their strength as strong or conditional.

Forty-two recommendations (including 16 strong recommendations) were generated. Using GRADE methodology and informed by a consensus process based on evidence from the current literature and patient preferences, this guideline provides direction for clinicians and patients making decisions on the management of gout.
