Andrew, that’s very interesting about the magnesium.

I keep banging on about safe uric acid levels. But, gout pain is very complicated. Scientists are only just starting to understand how gout pain usually needs other factors besides uric acid crystals.

Of course, the bottom line is, if you get rid of the uric acid crystal burden, you cannot get gout attacks. But, until that happens, there’s many things that trigger each attack. So, there’s many things that can help prevent it. The hard bit, is finding the right treatment combination. I guess, I’m lucky, because I respond well to the standard gout pain meds.

As you’ve shown, with some perseverance, it’s often possible to find non-standard ways that work.
