Wouldn’t it be interesting if we had statistics on why gout sufferers become Gout Victims? I guess, I’ll get some next year, as I develop that support plan more.

Unfortunately, Patrick, we both read about that failure to consider longterm dangers, far too often. And, the saddest part is, it’s much harder to deal with the consequences when you are older.
