I apologize, I certainly didn’t mean to offend anyone in any way. I suppose that I should have stated it more clearly. “How can the consumer cost of that therapy possibly be justified by the pharmaceutical company that markets it”. R&D etc. I also did suggest that malic acid supplementation therapy may possibly be “any other way” to successfully treat bone and joint damaging gout tophi. Simply another option to weigh for those suffering with gout. Let me also add that I am a long time gout sufferer, 10yrs, but I so far have not used any prescription drugs for treatment. I do have substantial damage to some finger and toe joints and have had many crippling attacks. Supplements are all that I have used thus far and malic acid has been instrumental in keeping my gout at bay. Just the facts…
