The aim of this study is to analyse influences on gout patients in the humid areas of Chongqing, and to provide scientific evidence for the evaluation and application of health education interventions in different regions and populations. Patients diagnosed with gout in the humid areas of 12 communities and 12 counties of 8 heavily humid districts and counties of Chongqing from May 2017 to May 2018 were included in the study. The general information, dietary habits, behaviour, and cognition information were obtained from 3850 different degrees of gout patients by the use of questionnaires. Gout patients were divided into three levels: mild (blood uric acid continually increased); moderate (recurrent acute attacks of hyperthermia arthritis); severe (severe joint deformity and dysfunction). Statistical analysis of various factors influencing gout patients was made. The majority of the male gout patients were aged 35-50 years (1228 patients, or 31.9% of the total, P < 0.05). Female gout patients tended to be younger (aged 20-35 years) (467 patients, or 12.1% of the total, P < 0.05). Multivariate logistic regression analysis showed that the risk factor was poor life habits (OR = 1.234, 95% CI = 0.465, 2.356, P < 0.05), whereas protective factors included higher medication compliance (OR = 0.82, 95%CI = 0.126, 0.825, P < 0.01), milder intensity of physical exercise (OR = 0.936, 95%CI = 0.34, 0.876) , P < 0.01), higher frequency of attending health educational lectures (OR = 2.471, 95% CI = 2.347, 4.562, P < 0.05). Diet is closely related to gout and is a risk factor (OR = 1.116, 95% CI = 1.562, 2.879, P < 0.05). So as to improve health education for gout patients, improve the cognitive level and behavioural ability of gout patients on diet control, and provide targeted health education according to age, educational level and several abilities.
