Thank you Keith Taylor sorry I didn’t see you had replied till now. I have requested a gout diwt plan but as you say I am focussing too much on food.
With the shoes/exercise thing. My last gout attack was 4 years ago during a really hot spell and I had been stupidly wearing fashion shoes with tight toe area. Since then in the last 4 years gout free I found the most comfortable orthapefic sandals with velcro fastenings round the toe (ideal with my bunions as can adjust them when my foot hurts. Plus brilliant trainers and slightly wider fitting boots all of which I have qalked in with no issues so would it not make sense to carry on wearing these? If in the past I have bought different shoes and have not got on with them i am unable to get refunds. I saw a physio and podiatrist and she said my footwear was perfect.
