Gout is a common rheumatism and its long-term recurrent attacks can cause joint destruction and deformity, even disability, which seriously affects the quality of life of patients. Chinese medicine plays a unique advantage in the treatment and rehabilitation of gout. To further standardize the diagnosis and treatment of gout with integrated traditional Chinese and Western medicine, the Chinese Association of Integrative Medicine issued the Guidelines for Diagnosis and Treatment of Gout with Integrated Traditional Chinese and Western Medicine in August 2021. Expert recommendations were made on the etiology and pathogenesis; diagnosis and classification standards; patient health management; and integrated traditional Chinese and Western medicine treatment, prevention, and nursing of gout. This article interprets the guidelines from the nursing point of view, focusing on the detailed explanation of diet care, functional exercise, and appropriate techniques of traditional Chinese medicine for gout, in order to provide better clinical reference for high-quality nursing services for gout patients.
