Yes, Burton Abrams work on sleep apnea and gout is interesting. He has contributed to the gout forum in the past.

It’s an area that would probably benefit from greater recognition during gout diagnosis. There is some relevant information if you use the GoutPal search box at the top of the page, for sleep apnea. I can’t find any other recent research into sleep apnea and gout. But, there is an interesting 2003 study that includes summaries of sleep apnea and uric acid research (Obstructive sleep apnoea syndrome: an oxidative stress disorder). Warning: it’s very technical.
