An excess of uric acid occurs when the kidneys are consistently overloaded and have a hard time eliminating the excess. As a result, these uric acid deposits can become crystallized and accumulate in between the joints, damaging them. Those afflicted with gout often have uric acid deposits in their big toe joints.
