Don, I hope you’ve taken to heart what nobody wrote. Because it says almost everything you need to think about.

I say “almost” because there is something particularly important that you seem to ignore – your uric acid level.

Gout is not about taking allopurinol every day for life. Although, that suits some gout patients. But, it is about managing uric acid, and gout symptoms. So, in my opinion, you don’t need a gout specialist. You DO need a Don specialist!

That is someone who listens to your needs, monitors your situation, and helps you make the right choices for you. So, you’ve come to the right place.

What’s your uric acid level, Don?
