Just been diagnosed with gout by the Doctor. Stating the bleeding obvious its sodding painful. Once the p1ss taking subsided along with the pain it has become apparent that my current fairly carefree lifestyle is in need of change. Due to see the Doctor again once foot has stabilised and hopefully will work out a future course of action to prevent another attack. However tried to see what is out there on the net and as usual lots to read but difficult to weed out decent gen from all the snake oil salesmen. Seems beer, wine, red meat, asparagus are out amongst other things. So my question is to any fellow sufferers is what to do? Any advice and/or top tips would be welcome. I have already considered throwing myself off something suitable tall but have reserved this as a fall back position for now.
