Improving Gout & Iron Guidelines is aimed at anyone who has any interest in the effects of iron on uric acid and gout.
The purpose of this article is to improve GoutPal’s gout & iron guidelines.
Current guidelines about iron on GoutPal.com are:
- Alternative Treatment For Gout – Blood Letting. The report on which this is based,
and a book (Facchini FS. The Iron Factor of Aging. Why do Americans age faster?), are reviewed it “Back to Bloodletting? Article in Journal of the American Geriatrics Society 52(9) · September 2004 DOI: 10.1111/j.1532-5415.2004.52425.x”. There is dietary advice for reducing available iron.
