Unani system of medicine depends on Hippocrate's hypothesis of four Humors (Akhlat). Gout is one of the most established known disease and described in Unani System of medicine under the term Niqras. According to Unani theory, the more prominent changes in the joints are caused generally by derangement of humeral temperament and accumulation of morbid material (Mawad-e-Fasida) in the joint spaces. Renowned Unani Physician Ibn-Hubal said that Niqras affect mainly those peoples who have excess of Humors (Akhlat) and their body is unable to excrete them, then these humors retain inside the body and accumulate around the joints and other tissue of body. Hyperuricemia is viewed as one of the main sources of joint stiffness and pain especially small joint most commonly affecting first metatarsophalangeal joint. Hyperuricemia associated with traditional risk factors such as dysglycemia, dyslipidemia, central obesity, gout (Nikras), gouty arthritis, tophi formation, abnormal blood pressure, etc. Concordantly, Ongoing studies have revived the controversy over the role of circulating uric acid and gout (Nikras) as an independent prognostic factor. In this regard, most of the Unani formulations efficacy (Habb-e-Asgandh, Habb-e-Suranjan, and Sharbat Bazoori Motadil) assessed on numerous patients with the possibility of lowering increased serum uric acid level. In this Study, we will concentrate on controlling of hyperuricemia with the use of Unani Medicine Habb-e- Suranjan).
