Not too many people have even heard of Gout and those who have assumed that it died away with the dinosaurs but that isn’t the case at all. It’s a type of arthritis that is increasing throughout the years particularly in males. You would be surprised to know that over 8 million people already suffer from Gout and the numbers are rising steadily. It’s actually the type of arthritis that once only struck the upper class station of people but Gout can hit anyone and surprisingly even children and athletes can get the condition. Surprise, surprise even some celebrities have been diagnosed with Gout and you would be surprised as to who. I have compiled a list of celebrities who are suffering from Gout.
Many celebrities take the risk of losing and gaining drastic amounts of weight for their roles assuming that it can have no long term affects to their health, but that's not the case at all. Jared Leto gained 60 pounds to play his role on Chapter 27, of John Lennon's killer. Due to such a rapid weight gain he contracted pain so awful that he couldn't walk long distances and often had to use a wheelchair. Kinda scary, isn't it? “My body was in shock from the amount of weight I gained,” he said. Photo Credit: Helga Esteb / Shutterstock.com
