In Introducing My Gout I describe your optional personal space within GoutPal. Because organizing your personal gout facts is the fastest way to control gout. Also keeping notes about your questions, experiences, and opinions helps you understand gout better.

However, GoutPal’s My Gout service will also help if you mentor yourself. Or if you choose a friend or healthcare professional to mentor you. Because easy access to personal gout facts helps you make the right decisions about treatment. Then, review of progress means your gout recovery is quicker. Finally, tracking outstanding issues means vital aspects of your gout treatment never get overlooked.
